2009 Mini-Season Ticket Packages:
EASTON, Pa. (www.lafayette.edu) - Lafayette football, the 2008 Patriot League attendance leader, is offering a variety of options for Leopard fans throughout the 2009 football season. In addition to the standard full-season ticket package, three mini-season ticket plans are now available. Due to the limited quantity of tickets Lafayette is allotted for the 2009 Lafayette-Lehigh game at Goodman Stadium on Nov. 21, the full and mini-season ticket packages are the way to reserve a ticket to the 145th meeting of college football's most-played rivalry.
A full-season ticket package includes all six home games on the slate and a guaranteed spot at the Lafayette-Lehigh game while supplies last.
The Night Game Package mini-season ticket plan will highlight all three of Lafayette's home night contests this season. The plan includes a reserved spot on Sept. 19 when the Leopards look to build on last year's 35-21 win over nationally-ranked Liberty at Youth Sports Night. Game two of the package has a spot to watch Lafayette try to make it three-consecutive victories over the Penn Quakers in front of a Family Weekend crowd on Sept. 26. The plan is capped off under the October night sky when Lafayette hosts Columbia on Oct. 10, Military Appreciation Night at Fisher Stadium.
The Patriot League Package reserves a spot to watch the Leopards reach for their seventh Patriot League title this season. A reserved seat on three consecutive weekends at Fisher Stadium, is kicked off with the Fordham game on Oct. 24, Homecoming Weekend on College Hill. One week later, the Leopards host Bucknell on Oct. 31, a day supporting Lauren's First and Goal Foundation, a renowned fundraising effort to raise awareness for pediatric brain tumor research. The three-game deal ends on Senior Day when Lafayette battles defending Patriot League champion Colgate on Nov. 7 with the annual Chili Cook-Off highlighting the pre-game activities.
The Monthly Package mini-season ticket package is the third and final option for the 2009 campaign. The plan has a spotlight game in each month of the Leopards' season. It starts with Lafayette's home opener against Liberty at Youth Sports Night. The second game has a reserved seat for the final home night game of the season when the Leopards host Columbia on Military Appreciation Night. Finally, as the race for the league title heats up in November, the three-game home plan concludes with the regular season home finale against Colgate, highlighted by the seventh annual Chili Cook-Off.
The full-season ticket plan is $95 for adults, $65 for seniors and $47 for youth and guarantees a reserved seat at the Lafayette-Lehigh game. Each mini-season ticket package is $59 for adults for $44 for seniors and $35 for youth. Each mini-season plan purchased includes one ticket to the Lafayette-Lehigh game while supplies last.
