2008 Football Parking Alert

MANHATTAN, Kan. A limited number of parking stalls in the east and west lots of Bill Snyder Family Stadium are available for purchase on a season basis for fans joining the Ahearn Scholarship Fund, K-State athletics officials announced today.


Reserved stalls designated by number are available with a contribution of $1,000 or more to the Ahearn Fund. VIP parking, which provides a guaranteed spot on a first-come, first-served basis, requires a minimum $500 contribution. The season parking permit costs $70. For more information about reserved parking at the stadium, contact the Athletics Development Office at 785-532-7984.


Athletics officials noted one major change in parking near the stadium for the 2008 season. The grassy area known as the “sheep lot” at the northwest corner of Kimball and Denison avenues across from the fire station has been closed. The lot, which is owned by the KSU Foundation and had been operated by KSU agricultural clubs, will be unavailable as the KSU Foundation begins preparations for construction of its new office headquarters. Fans who utilized the sheep lot in past seasons are being directed to the grass parking areas north and east of the fire station on Kimball or to the paved lots behind the veterinary complex off Denison, in addition to the other satellite lots near the stadium.


Parking lots open five hours prior to kickoff. General public parking fees are $15 for cars. Paid parking for fans with disabilities is available on a first-come, first-served basis in both the east and west stadium lots. To gain entry, guests must display a state-issued accessible license plate or hangtag and present a disability card along with a form of personal identification.
