Fans encouraged to use Gate 8 located behind the East Stands
August 29, 2006

BLACKSBURG, Va. - When members of the Hokie Nation descend upon Blacksburg this Saturday for the football season opener against Northeastern, Lane Stadium will feature not only a completed west side expansion, but also a new entry gate (Gate 8) behind the East stands.

Although tickets will be honored at any gate, fans are encouraged to arrive early and use the gate specified on their ticket to expedite the entry process. This will be especially helpful in easing congestion at the turnstiles considering the new security measures that will be in effect, which include all bags being checked prior to entry.

Additionally, students should know that they now may enter the stadium at any gate with a student ticket and a valid student ID (Hokie Passport).

A complete fan guide to any and all game day information is now available at
