EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern Lacrosse invites fans to be part of NU's drive for an eighth national championship in the last nine years by securing season tickets for the 2013 campaign, now available for purchase online or by calling the NU Athletics Ticket Office at 888-GO-PURPLE (467-8775). Season ticket packages offer fans savings of 15 percent off gameday ticket prices and also provide several benefits exclusive to NU Lacrosse season ticket holders.
The defending NCAA champion Wildcats are set to play eight regular-season home contests at Lakeside Field, where Northwestern has won 82 of its 84 home games since 2005.
Season tickets for adults are available for $49 while youth seats may be purchased for just $29. Fans once again also have the option of purchasing a family plan package, which admits two adults and three youths to all eight games at a total cost of $99.
All season ticket holders will receive an exclusive Northwestern Lacrosse commemorative championship banner with their purchase as well as the added benefit of an invitation to a closed Wildcats practice followed by a meet-and-greet session with the team.
"Each year, our players are motivated and energized by the tremendous fans that come out to Lakeside Field to provide the best homefield advantage in the country," said five-time IWLCA National Coach of the Year Kelly Amonte Hiller. "Again this season, several highly ranked teams will be coming to Evanston and I expect them all to be exciting games from a fan's perspective. We hope fans will take advantage of the value of the season ticket and spend part of their spring with us at Lakeside Field."
Northwestern makes its debut on its home turf on Wednesday, March 6, against Boston College and later in the month begins an exciting four-game homestand. The stretch includes a rematch of last year's memorable NCAA championship game when the 'Cats host Syracuse (March 30), one of four home games for NU against teams that qualified for the postseason a year ago.
