LA Tech announces ticket assurance plan for football
RUSTON – Louisiana Tech Athletics announced on Wednesday a ticket assurance plan for football season ticket holders in preparation for the 2020 season at Joe Aillet Stadium.
In the event that any of the home football games are canceled as a result of the public health threat of COVID-19, season ticket holders will have the following options:
Credit towards the 2021 home season (features six games, including a non-conference contest against SMU)
Apply season ticket purchase to the Louisiana Tech Athletic Club (LTAC) as a donation for this year (100 percent tax deduction)
Full refund on games that are impacted
“We are so thankful for the continued support of Louisiana Tech Football by our season ticket holders and donors,” Director of Athletics Tommy McClelland said. “You provide such financial stability to our athletics department on an annual basis. We strive to provide our fan base with peace of mind leading into the 2020 athletics year and this is a step in the right direction.”
As a reminder, the season ticket renewal deadline for the 2020 football season was extended to June 30.
At this time, LA Tech officials have not made a decision on any limited seating (i.e 50% capacity in Joe AIllet Stadium) but will look to make those determinations in July or August as more information becomes available.
A payment plan option is available where fans can purchase or renew their season tickets using monthly payment plans through September. More details will be announced soon on the potential implementation of mobile ticketing for the 2020 football season, as well as other measures in an effort to limit physical contact on game days.
To take advantage of a payment plan or if there are any questions/concerns regarding 2020 Football season tickets, contact Director of Ticketing Sara Powell Harper at firstname.lastname@example.org or (318) 257-5329.
Seat renewal deadline for the Davison Athletics Complex is also June 30. Renewals for the DAC can be made at www.latechalumni.org/DAC. Limited seats are available for the 2020 season. Those interested can contact Associate AD for Development Alan Savage at email@example.com or (318) 255-7950.
McClelland recently announced football coaches and student-athletes can return to campus on June 1 with voluntary workouts beginning on June 8.
The student-athletes will go through a week of physicals, testing and COVID-19 prevention as the LA Tech sports medicine staff provides necessary supervision. Tech Athletics will continue consulting with local medical professionals and Docs for Dogs (team doctors) throughout the lead up to football season kicking off on Sept. 5 at UNLV.
The Bulldogs went undefeated at home in 2019 and recorded a 10-3 overall record, the first 10-win season since 1984. One of those victories was a 14-0 shutout over Miami (Fla.) in the 2019 Walk On’s Independence Bowl. The program has now won six bowl games in six consecutive years (2014-19), the longest active streak in the nation.
