BUFFALO, NY – University at Buffalo Director of Athletics Danny White has announced exciting new seating enhancements at UB Stadium to better accommodate students at football games.
Improvements include additional seats in the lower level preferred sections on the east side of the stadium. In all, White confirmed an additional 600 seats on the east side have been allocated for student use. Also, beginning on Wednesday, students will have the autonomy to choose where they want to sit within the student section.
"We understand the important role our students play in building an atmosphere at athletic events, White said. "We will use this year as an evaluation tool to further identify long term solutions to improve overall seating locations and gameday experiences for our students. As it relates to football, our charge is to bring "big time" college football to Western New York and our students are a huge part of that."
All fans are encouraged to wear blue to tomorrow's nationally televised game against Kent State. UB will create a "Sea of Blue" on ESPNU. Kickoff against Kent State is 7:00 pm at UB Stadium.
