Tommy Trojan Game Day Tips:

Game Day Parking

  • General Parking: (NOTE: general parking permits are only valid in general parking lots. general parking lots, as well as parking across campus, will be strictly enforced.)

Clear Bag Policy: This policy limits the type and size of bags permitted in the venue. However, guests are still allowed to bring personal items, but they must either be carried or fit into a permissible sized bag. Approved bags include clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bags that do not exceed 14” by 8” by 14”; one-gallon clear re-sealable plastic storage bags; small clutch purses no larger than 4.5” by 6.5” with or without a handle or strap.

Cougville: Includes the Cougar Den presented by Coors Light and the corporate tent area on Rogers Field directly adjacent to Gesa field. Refreshments served in Cougville include soda and Coors Light products for those 21 years of age or older, for purchase. This area opens three hours prior to kick-off, closes at kickoff and then reopens for halftime.

Cougville also provides music and entertainment options including a Kids Zone with a variety of inflatables for young Cougar fans to enjoy. Beginning two hours prior to kick-off the Cougar Road Show hosted by Derek Dias and Alex Brink featuring a variety of guests throughout the season.

WSU campus: If you’ve never been to the Washington State campus, you’re in for a real treat. For all the jokes about the location, driving from Spokane to Pullman by car or taking the short drive from across the Idaho border can be quite delightful. The campus is very pretty, and the people are ultra-friendly. As for tiny Martin Stadium, it’s kind of the Wrigley Field of Pac-12 football stadiums.

Having done some welcomed stadium renovations a few years back, there are no bad seats in Martin Stadium, and you’re super close to the action no matter where you sit. You can bet the fans will be into it. And don’t forget to visit the campus bookstore; it’s a kick.

Martin Stadium Gates: Gates will open two (2) hours prior to scheduled game times. Tickets are honored at the following gates:
– Reserved Tickets – All gates
– Student Tickets – Student Plaza Only
– Refer to game ticket for entry gate nearest to your seat.

Trojans Walk: The Trojans team buses should arrive at Martin Stadium around 10:30 a.m.
