Game Days at Texas State

September 26, 2013

The Texas State 2013 football season has only just begun and fans are already turning out in record numbers to cheer on the Bobcats. Here at home, some new activities have been added to official game day festivities for those looking for family friendly pregame celebrations.

Bobcat Courtyard (New Activity)

Visit the Bobcat Courtyard on your way into Bobcat Stadium.  Located in the plaza area just outside the North side of Bobcat Stadium, the Bobcat Courtyard is an interactive area featuring games, autograph sessions from Texas State sport teams, carnival type food, a live pre-game radio show and much more.  This area is perfect for families with young children or fans looking to experience some game day atmosphere without the personal setup of a tailgate.  All activities are free.  Food is reasonably priced.


Bobcat Stadium Spirit March (New Tradition)

Let the Texas State cheerleaders, World Famous Strutters and the Pride of the Hill Country the Bobcat Marching Band lead you into Bobcat Stadium for the game.  Line the drive way of Bobcat Alley and make a path as over 500 members of these three organizations display the spirit of Texas State as they march to the stadium.  The spirit march will start at Jowers Field just off Charles Austin Drive, pass through Bobcat Alley (Strahan Coliseum tailgate lot) and continue into Bobcat Stadium.


Coca-Cola Fun Zone (New Location)

Kids of all ages are welcome to experience the Coca-Cola Fun Zone.  Located in a new area inside Bobcat Stadium in the Southeast corner the Coca-Cola Fun Zone is fully equipped with bounce houses, face painters, balloon twisters, a kiddie train and opportunities to take pictures with the Texas State Cheerleaders and Strutters.  The Fun Zone is open starting at 4:30 pm through the end of the 3rd quarter. To access the area enter Bobcat Stadium and walk the concourse until you get to section 123.  The entrance is located at the bottom of section 123, near the field. Open to all kids.  Parents or guardians must sign release form and are encouraged to stay in the area with the children.
