APSU Sports Information
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University football season tickets are on sale, and they’re going quickly.
Under a new ticketing structure implemented by assistant athletics director Josh Jorgensen, less than 30 reserved seat backs (Sections D and E) remain.
These are available to Governor Club members at $55.00 per seat for adults ($45.00 for youth/seniors/staff and military personnel) and require an additional $20.00 donation per seat for non-Governor Club patrons.
Reserved sections (A, B, C, F and G) are available at the same rate, but don’t require a Governors Club membership or additional donation.
General admission sections are available for $40.00 for adults ($30.00 for youth/seniors/staff and military personnel).

The Kids Zone at Tailgate Alley, located in the grass near Morgan Brothers Soccer Field, also will be available three hours before kickoff, with inflatables and games available for our younger fans.
New for Tailgate Alley in 2016, local food trucks will be on-hand to showcase some of the finest names in Clarksville’s mobile food.
