MIAMI — Football fans in Miami and the surrounding area have an opportunity to enjoy the luxury of a chair-back reserved seat during four Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College regular season games at Red Robertson Field, according to NEO athletic director Dale Patterson.
“These seats are located on the west side of the stadium and give the fan a chance to sit in a comfortable, chair-back seat with wide aisles and drink cup holders,” Patterson said. “Almost all of the chairs are located in the shade for added comfort.”
The reserved seat section at Red Robertson Field encompasses all the blue chair-back seats located between the 40-yard lines on the west side of the stadium.
Reserved seats in this section will be $75 per person.
“These tickets are good the entire home game season,” Patterson said. “Although the cost seems high, we want to encourage the community to come out and show their support for our football program that is on the rise.
“We use these sales to serve as a fund raiser to help support the football program,” Patterson said. “The area will be monitored so that a reserved ticket holder will be able to sit in the same seat during every home game we have this season.”
Walk-up general admission tickets purchased at the gate are $5 per person that includes children.
“We want our fan base to understand the importance of having them in the stands,” Patterson said. “It won’t matter if you get there 10 minutes before the game or at the end of the first quarter, that seat will still be there for you.”
Anyone wanting to purchase a ticket should contact athletic secretary Lisa Severe at 918-540-6327 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
