A new and improved season ticket holder benefits package is being introduced for the 2018 season, which includes a V-Sabre clear bag, loaded ticket cards and merchandise and concessions vouchers. Fans who purchase season tickets in the newly-created Hooville section receive a Hooville t-shirt with each season ticket purchase, may opt-in to receive one complementary season parking pass per account in the Health System Garage and special fan engagement throughout the season.
