FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas women’s basketball team plays its only exhibition contest hosting Rogers State Sunday at 2 p.m. in Bud Walton Arena.
It is the first of two consecutive home appearances before the Razorbacks hit the road for five consecutive road contests. General admission tickets range from $2-$6 and reserved seats from $5-$10. Students 17 and under are admitted free.
The Razorback marketing staff will be handing out team posters and schedule cards to fans so be sure and pick yours up on the concourse of Bud Walton.
Several changes are in place to assist fans with their basketball experience this season. All public doors will open 60 minutes prior to tip and the arena’s concession stands have been upgraded including the ability to accept credit card payment at all permanent stands.
Fans are also reminded about the University’s bag policy.
This policy reflects the university’s ongoing commitment to recommendations from the Department of Homeland Security. “Bags are not permitted except those bags required for child care or medical conditions, and purses no larger than 14” long (side-to-side) x 10” wide (front to back) x 10” deep (top to bottom). All purses allowed into the arena will be searched. Containers measuring 14” long x 10” wide x 10” deep will be placed at each entry to Bud Walton Arena, shuttle pick up locations and selected parking lots. Purses that do not fit into the container will not be permitted inside the arena.
Fans coming to the game will also notice the implementation of e-tickets and ticket scanning at the gates. With the change to digital ticket scanning, Razorback basketball fans will benefit from the heightened protection against counterfeit tickets and can take advantage of new digital ticketing services including print-at-home single game tickets and ticket transfers for season ticket holders. Bud Walton Arena, like many other college and professional venues, will scan all tickets using a bar-code on each ticket to verify admission. Scanning will identify counterfeit and stolen tickets and provide improved security and service. Help windows will be located in the arena to help fans with any ticket scanning issues or to answer questions regarding the new technology. It is recommended that fans plan on arriving earlier than normal to avoid any delays in entering the arena in the initial implementation of the new digital ticketing system.
