Getting to the Linc for '06 football games
The Temple Owls begin play this year brimming with optimism under new head coach Al Golden. The Owls play six games, including three at home, against Mid-American Conference opponents this year, their last as an affiliate member before they gain full conference membership in 2007.
Temple Athletics is offering Wild Cherry student passes this year. For $50, students get guaranteed free access to lower-level seating at all Temple home football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball games in special student sections, as well as eligibility to win prizes at every game, a Wild Cherry T-shirt, and priority access to road game transportation options. Students can still get free tickets with their Student Confirmation Cards/IDs, but do not get priority seating or any of the perks. Wild Cherry student passes can be purchased at the Liacouras Center box office.
On home game days, Temple will be running buses to the team’s home venue, Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia, starting two hours before kickoff. Buses will pick up students at the Student Center, the 1300 Residence Hall and Johnson-Hardwick, then return to drop them off at the same locations after the game.
Another option is to ride SEPTA’s Broad Street subway line south to Pattison Avenue, the line’s last stop, which drops passengers off at the stadium complex.
When you get to the stadium complex, join the fun at the Owls Nest tailgate area, located in lot K in the Lincoln Financial Field parking lot. There will be a free student tailgate party (which includes music, food and drink) before every home game this season. Once you enter the Head House Plaza, you’ll also find inflatable games, face painters, prize giveaways and more.
The Athletics Department is also seeking student volunteers to assist with game-day promotions and other duties. For more information, contact Scott Walcoff at 215-204-0544.
