NORFOLK, Va. -- Students are already lining up for tickets for the ODU Football Teams first game on September 5th vs. Chowan that become available Monday morning at 10 a.m. at the Ted Constant Convocation Center.

The first die hard Monarch fans in line included:

  • Katrina Williams - Senior - Sports Management Major
  • Will Hankins - Senior - Civil/Environmental Engineering Major
  • Kyle Martin - Senior - Civil Technology Major
  • Jacob Dominguez - Sophomore - Biology Major

    Well over 200 students were camping out at 8 p.m. Sunday night with more expected to join the die hards this evening.

    "This is amazing," noted offensive linemen Robbie Duncan (Sterling, Va.) and Jack Lowney (Narberth, Pa.) and kicker Jonathan Plisco (Newport News, Va.). All three dropped by hearing the word that a tent city was forming behind the Constant Center. "This makes all the hard work in practice all worth it," all three agreed.

    Student tickets are available at the Ted Constant Convocation Center box office beginning 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 24. Tickets are only available from the Ted on this date.

    Lining up and/or camping out is allowed on the lawn behind the convocation center.

    Student tickets will also be available at the Campus Information Center (CIC) in Webb University Center beginning Tuesday, Aug. 25. Prior to the start of the fall semester, the CIC will be open 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, but closed Saturday and Sunday.

    Student ticket distribution for the first game will end at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2.

    Student seating is limited, so students are encouraged to pick up their tickets by the deadline. Any remaining student tickets will be made available for sale to the general public beginning 10 a.m. on Thursday of game week.

    Tickets for home games throughout the rest of the season will be available on the Monday two weeks prior to the game through 6 p.m. Wednesday of game week. Tickets may be picked up at the Constant Center box office from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets will also be available at the CIC from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

    Student tickets are first-come, first-served.

    A current ODU student ID must be validated for ticket pickup and for entry into Foreman Field at S.B. Ballard Stadium. One free ticket per student ID will be issued. Students may also purchase a second ticket for $10.

    Student tickets are nontransferable. The resale or attempted resale of a ticket at a higher price than that appearing on the ticket is grounds for seizure and voiding without compensation. Tickets that are lost, stolen, counterfeited or obtained from an unauthorized source will be voided.
