Stadium concession stands will accept Auburn student I.D. cards starting this season. The option to use Tiger Cards inside the stadium was part of Auburn SGA president Owen Parrish’ election platform. Parrish couldn’t be reached to comment on whether the change was him delivering on a campaign promise; Cassie Arner, Auburn’s assistant athletic director for public relations, says the decision to allow students to pay with the cards came from “the university.”
No word yet on whether the amount spent will go against student meal plans or be added to a bursar bill. (But it’s all your parents money, anyway, so…)
Other Auburn fans will also benefit from changes in Jordan-Hare’s concessions customer service. The high traffic concessions stands on the north concourse will now feature a “snaked” line system intended to reduce customer wait time.
Other gameday improvements will hopefully make it easier for fans to find their way inside and around Jordan-Hare. Eight large maps split have been added on the east and west sides of the stadium. Fans with a ticket but without a bag can now enter Jordan-Hare more quickly through Express Lines located at Gates 2, 12A, 12B, and 15. But those with bags can now pack them with computers—last month, Auburn announced that Jordan-Hare will offer WiFi access this fall and allow fans to bring iPads and even laptop into the stadium.
A new website, AUBGameday.com, will be unveiled in the coming weeks and will feature a construction map providing up-to-the-minute updates on street closings and detours; the URL currently redirects to the online version of Auburn’s Fan Guide. There will also be electronic signage around campus to help fans avoid construction delays.
