The 2013 UWG football season is right around the corner, with the home opener set to commence in less than two months on Sept. 14 against Miles College. Monday, the University of West Georgia opened up 2013 season ticket sales to the general public.
"We have an outstanding college football atmosphere here at University Stadium," said Senior Associate Athletic Director Eddie Duffey. "And purchasing season tickets gives every fan a chance to choose their seat for all the great action that is coming in 2013."
The Wolves will have a six-game home slate this season, beginning with a pair of teams that reached the 2012 NCAA playoffs. University Stadium will welcome Miles College on Sept. 14, followed one week later with Midwestern State University as a part of the second year in the Lone Star-Gulf South Conference Challenge.
The game that many fans look to every year is the homecoming game, which is set to take place on Saturday, Oct. 5, as the Wolves will matchup with Point University as this year's opponent. This will mark the first time in University Stadium where the homecoming opponent is not a member of the Gulf South Conference.
One of the more anticipated games of the year in University Stadium will be on Oct. 19, as the Valdosta State University Blazers will come to town for the second straight season. The Blazers enter the season as the defending national champions and are the third home game of the year for UWG against a 2012 playoff team.
November will bring a new opponent to University Stadium as Florida Tech, a squad that will be a football-only member of the Gulf South Conference, will make their first trip to Carrollton in the first season of football for the Panthers. The final game of the year will mirror the schedule in 2011, as Delta State University will return to University Stadium to close out the regular season on Nov. 16.
For the Chairback section, the ticket package is $90, while all other sections are $75 for the six-game package. Fans can also purchase Hospitality Tailgate Passes or a Parking Pass for $60 each, but both $60 items require a contribution to the University of West Georgia Athletics Foundation.
