FAYETTEVILLE – Tom Collen and the University of Arkansas women’s basketball team welcomes Florida A&M to Bud Walton Arena for the 2010-11 season opener at 11:30 a.m. Friday.
The unusual start time will accommodate a promotional effort in which area elementary schools were invited to attend the game. More than 2500 area students are expected to attend.
As a result, the University has announced the following adjustments to game-day parking.
The University of Arkansas parking policy does not permit the "clearing" of lots for events prior to 5 p.m. They will, however, suspend ticketing of the parking lots around Bud Walton Arena around game time Friday. Fans with parking passes will be able to enter their designated lot or any other lot near the arena at that time. Fans without parking passes will also be allowed in the lots near the arena without getting a ticket.
Fans are encouraged to find a nearby alternate parking lot if their designated lot is full.
Anyone wanting more information about Friday’s game parking should contact Jessica Dorrell in the Razorback Foundation at 479-575-7141.
