FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State ticket office will begin selling tickets to the Aug. 30 Bulldog football game at USC beginning on Wednesday, May 14 at 9 a.m.
Fresno State was allotted 7,000 tickets for the road game being played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and they will be on sale at the price of $65 per ticket.
"We have been extremely pleased with the spring football season ticket sales to this point," said Paul Ladwig, Fresno State senior associate athletic director for external relations. "The dynamic ticket pricing strategies developed for the Nebraska game have worked perfectly. Placing the USC tickets on sale is the next step in the spring plan. The monies generated from these tickets stay right here in the Fresno State Athletic department. We would like the fans to start with us when buying their tickets."
Purchases can be made in person at the Fresno State ticket office located at Bulldog Stadium, online at GoBulldogs.com or over the phone by calling 559-278-DOGS (3647).
USC game tickets will be available to the general public, but season ticket holders and donors will receive priority seating if they place their order by June 16. Fans that become new season ticket holders before the June 16 deadline will also get priority seating for the USC game.
Fresno State has a strong history of traveling well to road games within the state of California, selling out its allotment of tickets for the 2005 game at USC (6,000 tickets), the 2008 game at UCLA (10,000 tickets) and the 2011 game against California in Candlestick Park (over 17,000 tickets sold).
The Fresno State Alumni Association will be hosting an official Bulldogs tailgate party at Jesse A. Brewer Jr. Park, located at Exposition Park, adjacent to the Coliseum starting three and a half hours before kickoff on Aug. 30.
"The Fresno State Alumni Association is thrilled to host the Bulldogs tailgate at our football season opener," said Jacquelyn Glasener, Alumni Association executive director. "We're partnering with Athletics and 940 AM ESPN Radio to create a fun and successful event for all."
Menu, pricing and reservations for the tailgate will be available beginning on Tuesday, June 3 online at www.fresnostatealumni.com, or by calling 559.278.ALUM.
