This football season, Tulane fans and visitors to Benson Field at Yulman Stadium will enjoy an enhanced gameday experience. Lovers of concessions in particular will rejoice the prices of food and beverages have been significantly reduced at many stands throughout the stadium. 

Starting this year, hot dogs, candy, peanuts and water bottles will be available for only $2. Other reduced concession prices include $3 nachos, popcorn and domestic beers.

“We are very excited to be able to offer better deals at the concession stands that complement our lower ticket prices for the 2019 season,” Senior Associate Athletic Director Chris Maitre said in a press release. 

The fan-friendly ticket and concession prices are expected to make the cost of attending games less burdensome. With the team coming off of a successful campaign, the athletic department wants to ensure more fans fill up Yulman Stadium this fall.

Yulman Stadium was built 6 years ago with much fanfare. Now, officials are excited to lower the prices of the stadium’s fan fare.

In addition to the decrease in concession and ticket prices, Tulane Athletics has also agreed to partner with Tailgater Concierge for home games this season. 

Tailgater Concierge will organize catering orders, supply tailgate essentials such as BBQ grills and televisions in addition to assisting with setting up tailgates and cleaning up after the games.

“Tulane University is committed to providing our fans with a first-class gameday experience and this partnership is proof of that commitment,” Director of Athletics Troy Dannen said in a press release. 

With the addition of these tailgate packages and upgrades, the atmosphere at Green Wave football games looks to be significantly improved this season. As the football program gains momentum, the gameday experience is matching it step-for-step.

The team has already secured a convincing home victory over Florida International University, so the improvements of Tulane football appear to be both on and off the field.

Scheduled home games later this season against conference contenders the University of Central Florida and the University of Houston promise to be exciting, pivotal matchups. The potential for a successful season and lively environment make Yulman Stadium an attractive destination this fall.

The Tulane football team will next travel to Auburn University to take on the Tigers in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 7, at 6:30 p.m.
