NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KTRE) - SFA athletics has introduced new Luxury box seating for the upcoming season. Five shipping containers have been turned into the ultimate tailgating experience for SFA fans. The boxes have been designed by Austin-based Box Life.
“It was something I looked at doing with Texas A&M Commerce when I was up there but we could never get it going,” SFA Athletic Director Ryan Ivey said. “When I got to Austin Peay there was a real need for it so we did it there. It will be great here in Nacogdoches.”
Ivey and the administration has been looking at ways to increase revenue for the program and offer new experiences for fans. The boxes are being rented out for the season much like a suite is done at bigger stadiums.
“This is going to bring the tailgating experience inside the stadium,” Ivey said. “Our vision is to become the leading mid-major department in the nation. When we talk about that fan experience is a big part of that from an entertainment standpoint. We want to do that for the fans no matter what age they are.”
