BAKERSFIELD, Calif.- As promised over the Summer, the new “We’re All ‘Runners” campaign’s focus on affordability and family-friendliness will begin this week with the first home events on campus when women’s soccer opens their season Friday against Gonzaga at 7 P.M. and Sunday against Eastern Washington at 3 P.M. at The Main Soccer Field.

Fans will immediately see an overall cost reduction this season as the cost of parking will once again be covered by the athletics department. Last season fans paid a reduced $3 per-vehicle rate to park on game days, this season fans will park free of charge during on-campus athletic events.

Ticket prices for men’s and women’s soccer have also been reduced this season as well. Adult tickets for women’s soccer have been reduced to $8 per match while kids and seniors are once again just $5. Prices for men’s soccer are $10 for adults while kids and seniors are just $5 as well. Single game volleyball tickets have also been reduced to $8 a game this season with the $5 rate applying to kids and seniors as well. Volleyball matches are general admission at the Icardo Center.

Season ticket packages are also still available for both men’s and women’s soccer at a reduced rate this season. Women’s soccer packages are just $40 per seat this season which includes eight home matches.

Men’s soccer season tickets are $50 per seat which includes seven home matches including the October 4, Western Athletic Conference opener against San Jose State at 7 P.M. That game not only marks the return of former Roadrunner men’s soccer head coach Simon Tobin but it will also be televised nationally by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA TV) and is an anticipated sellout.

Season tickets can be purchased at the games this weekend or by emailing tickets@csub.edu.

Faculty and staff members at CSUB will also be eligible for season tickets at a 50% discount this season.

More ticket specials and fan savings will be announced in the coming weeks.

Gates for this Friday’s women’s soccer match will open at 6 P.M. with kickoff scheduled for 7.  All seats are general admission and fans are permitted to bring in chairs to sit on the grass near the field as well.

Limited edition “We’re All ‘Runners” women’s soccer schedule posters will also be available as fans enter the game.
