Although you’d never know it by the heat wave the state is still experiencing, college football season is right around the corner, and that means Madison’s Toyota Field will be converted into a football field temporarily for a game between the University of North Alabama and Jacksonville State University.
Tickets are now on sale for the event. Find out below how you can get them:
From baseball to football
Single-game tickets for the University of North Alabama’s historic game Jacksonville State on October 15 at Toyota Field are now on sale to the general public. Tickets can be purchased online at trashpandasbaseball.com, over the phone at 256-325-1403 ext.1, or at the Wicks Family Foundation Box Office at Toyota Field.
Kickoff is set for 6PM for the first collegiate football game to be played in Madison. Toyota Field will have a capacity of about 10,000 fans in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere.
“We look forward to welcoming UNA and JSU to Toyota Field for a top-notch experience that we offer all of our fans every night during baseball season. While this event has some unique characteristics to it, our focus is on keeping the same mindset we have for Trash Pandas games – to create a special fan experience that will want them to come back for another event at Toyota Field.”Garrett Fahrmann, general manager of the Rocket City Trash Pandas.
Both schools will have their full contingent of band members in attendance, which will add a traditional college football feel to the environment. The Trash Pandas will have a full range of food and beverage options available throughout the ballpark, which features a 360-degree concourse so that fans can always have an eye on the game.
Due to required safety protocols, all offensive drives during the game will be played in one direction towards the first base dugout.
Lions against Gamecocks, Chapter 50
Presented by MartinFed, this game will be the 50th all-time meeting between the Lions and Gamecocks in a series between cross-state rivals that dates back to 1949. The matchup will be broadcasted live on the ESPN+ streaming service.
This will be the first meeting between the two schools as members of the ASUN Conference, and the 2022 season marks North Alabama’s first season as a full Division I member where the Lions can compete for both the ASUN Championship and an NCAA FCS Playoff bid.
The Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau said bringing fans to fill the hotels throughout the area will create an estimated economic impact of $1 million for the area.
