YSU Will Play Host to Three Events on Saturday

Throughout the week, the YSU campus will be a buzz of activity as the Athletic Department prepares to play host to five events in a three-day span starting on Friday evening. Here is information for the week ahead:

The Athletic Ticket Office will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. With YSU observing Veterans Day on Tuesday, the Athletic Ticket Office will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On Friday, the YSU volleyball team plays its regular-season finale against Cleveland State. The match at the Beeghly Center is set to start at 7 p.m.

Saturday features the women's basketball team in action against Niagara at 11 a.m., while the football team entertains Indiana State at 2 p.m. and the men's basketball team closes out a busy day against rival Kent State at 7 p.m. 

On Saturday, fans can enjoy this full day of Penguins Athletics with a special three-game pass for just $10, which is available at the area Rulli Brothers locations (Austintown and Boardman) or at the YSU Athletic Ticket Office. Fans can purchase the “3-Point Play” pass and save $31 off a regular price ticket for all three events. Those who attend all three games can present their three tickets stubs and special “3-Point Play” pass at the men’s basketball game against KSU to receive a $10 voucher to all Rulli Brothers stores.

For Saturday's YSU vs. Indiana State football game, the M-24 and M-7 Tailget Parking Lots located on Fifth Avenue will open at 8 a.m. for gameday tailgating. Individual tailgate passes for the M-7 lot remain for that game and are $20 at the Athletic Ticket Office. All normal football game parking policies will be in place throughout the day. Handicapped parking for the football game is available behind the east stands beginning at 12:30 p.m. YSU will also provide shuttle service from the decks and the M-7 lot to Stambaugh Stadium 90 minutes prior to kick-off.

Basketball season-ticket holders with season M-Lot passes may park in the Lincoln Avenue Deck, the Wick Avenue Deck as well as the M-26 and M-27 lots without a fee. Ticket holders with both M-24 football tailgate passes and M-Lot basketball parking passes may park in M-24 for all events that day.

Individuals attending the basketball games only are encouraged to park in either deck or the M-26 and M-27 Lot. The cost for gameday parking is $5. Spots in the M-24 lot will be available around 6:30 p.m. for the men's basketball game.

To conclude the weekend, the men's basketball team returns to action against Oberlin on Sunday with a 4 p.m. contest. Normal basketball parking procedures will be in effect on Sunday.
