McNeese Cowboys Athletics has released some changes that will occur during home football games starting this Saturday. Here are the details from McNeese:

 

There will be a few changes at the gates for the remaining Cowboy football games for the 2011 season in order to make the “scanning in” and “scanning out” process easier for Cowboy fans.

On the east side of Cowboy stadium, there will be one main entrance point for the general public. The main northeast gates will be the only gates open for the general public to enter or exit on the east side. This is a change from previous weeks as there were two entrance points. Fans will be able to “scan in” at the northeast gate, as well as “scan out”. If a fan needs to leave the stadium, they will need to scan out when they leave in order to be able to re-enter throughout the game. There will be designated gate workers that will be scanning people out. Tickets will be scanned either in or out throughout the game until the 10:00 minute mark of the third quarter.

At the northwest gate of Cowboy stadium, everything will remain exactly the same except there will be a “Scan Out” area so that if fans need to leave and want to come back into the game, they will be able to scan out.

The Student Gate will remain where it is towards the south end on the east side. Students are the only people permitted to come in the Student Gate. All general public will need to have their ticket scanned at the Northeast gates if they want to come in on the east side of Cowboy stadium.

The Sky Ranch entrance will remain the same as people with sky ranch tickets are permitted to enter through the bottom level of the sky ranch.

Anyone with a ticket for the Fieldhouse Club level can enter either through the front lobby of the Fieldhouse or from the field side after they have entered in one of the main gates.

Here is a list of gates for fans to use:

Northwest Gates: All fans can enter or exit through this gate, except students

Northeast Gates: All fans can enter or exit through this gate, except students

Student Gate: Students only

Sky Ranch: Only fans with correct tickets or credentials are allowed to enter through the Sky Ranch from either inside or outside the stadium.

Cowboy Club gate: Open for Cowboy Club members to enter and exit the stadium with their game tickets. General Public can access this gate if needed.

Fieldhouse: Only fans with correct tickets or credentials are allowed to enter through the fieldhouse. Fieldhouse ticket holders can enter the fieldhouse through the fieldhouse lobby or the “field” side also.

Fans are permitted to leave and re-enter throughout the game, as long as they have their ticket scanned out. Gates will still open at 5:30 P.M. As always, no food or drink is allowed to come into Cowboy Stadium.
