Parking outlook for football games

By mrasor Published: May 25, 2010

Football posted information on parking for home games next season. See the press release below:

The University of Akron Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced updated procedures for its football game-day season parking.
Ticket holders who purchase premium season tickets (suites, loge boxes and club seats) will receive first preference for which parking lot they would like to have access this season.
Suite, loge box and club seat holders will have the option to choose between Lot 9 (gravel lot south of InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field) or Lot 10 (lot east of Stile Athletics Field House). A member of the Z-Fund staff will contact all premium season ticket holders for their parking selection prior to June 1.
Priority reserved season ticket holders will receive the next option for parking spaces based on availability. Parking spaces will be assigned by the Z-Fund Office on August 1 according to date of renewal/sale. Z-Fund parking includes lots 9, 10, 8 and 13, located south to north surrounding InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field.
For every four (4) priority reserved season tickets purchased, an individual account will receive one (1) parking pass in a Z-Fund priority lot. The parking pass is complimentary with the season ticket purchase.
For those individuals who renewed or purchased season tickets in reserved, general admission or family plan sections, season parking passes will be available for purchase at $50 per pass for the season. These parking spaces will be assigned by the Z-Fund Office on August 1 according to date of renewal/sale and may include the following on-campus parking lots based on availability: 73, 72, 17, 7, 15 and 14, located south to north surrounding InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field. The passes are available for purchase by contacting The University of Akron Athletics Ticket Office at 1-888-99-AKRON (25766).
Those 2009 season ticket holders who have not yet renewed are encouraged to do so as soon as possible in order to guarantee the best parking options.
Similar to last season, for those season ticket holders and individuals with handicap placards and difficulties in walking long distances, the east campus parking deck (lot 1) will have approximately 250 spaces reserved at a cost of $5 per game. A game-day shuttle will transport these guests free of charge to the northeast gate (gate 3) of InfoCision Stadium.
Single game-day parking and tailgating information will be released later this summer by the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.
"This new plan continues to allow all Zips fans to park on campus in close proximity to InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field while rewarding our donors and fans who have the most invested in our programs," said UA Director of Athletics Tom Wistrcill.
"We are very fortunate that all lots on campus are located within short walking distance of the stadium, especially compared to many other collegiate or professional venues. Having easy access to and from the game, coupled with the open-surface lots allowing tailgating, offer our fans a true college football game-day experience when they come to support our team under the direction of new Head Coach Rob Ianello."
