Youngstown State football fans have been some of the most supportive in the Football Championship Subdivision and just for renewing or purchasing their season tickets for the 2011 campaign, one lucky fan and a companion will get the chance to travel with the Penguins on a road trip this season as part of the official team party.

The Athletic Department announced on Monday (May 23) that all individuals who renew or buy season tickets prior to June 30 will be entered into a drawing to travel with the Penguins to either the Nov. 5 game at UNI or Nov. 12 at North Dakota State.

The winner will be allowed to bring one companion and YSU will cover the expense of the flight, hotel room, on-site transportation and game ticket. The only thing not covered is meals during the trip.

Season-ticket prices for the 2011 campaign are $84 for reserved seats and $60 for general admission. Reserved seats are in sections two through six on the west stands and 14-18 in the east stands. General admission seats are located in sections 1 and 7 of the west stands.

YSU plays host to Valparaiso, Saint Francis (Pa.), Illinois State, South Dakota State, Western Illinois and Missouri State this fall.

The Drawing will be held following July 4 allowing fans to renew their tickets between now and the end of June. The winner will be notified soon after.

This is the first time an incentive like this has been offered. It will give two lucky YSU fans an inside look at the coaches, players and staff on a road trip.

Season-ticket holders were sent renewals via mail recently. To purchase season tickets contact the YSU Athletic Ticket office at (330) 941-1978.
