Now for all Clan home football games, SFU students can take a free shuttle from the Burnaby campus to Swangard stadium, a stadium near Metrotown, where SFU will play in order to make way for BuildSFU’s construction plans.
The Pepsi student shuttle leaves the upper bus loop by the Cornerstone building 90 minutes before the start of every home game. The shuttle will then return the students half an hour after the game has ended.
“With the move to Swangard this year, we recognized that it would be tough for students to get there and we wanted to solve that issue for them,” said Ben Hodge, SFU Athletic’s manager of communications and marketing.
In addition to a free shuttle, the games themselves remain free for SFU students, while tickets for youth (18 and under), seniors, and SFU staff are $2. Otherwise, tickets cost $8 for benches, while seats are $10.
Students can also participate in the Fraser Nations Rewards Program in which they are rewarded points for each game they attend, regardless of the sport. If a student attends 25 games, they will be entered into a raffle for a grand prize trip to Hawaii.
“Come to a game, it’s free admission to a game. If it’s football you get a free shuttle to the game and you can win prizes if you come,” explained Hodge. “It’s a good offer for students who are looking for things to do.”
The next shuttle leaves for Swangard stadium at 11:30 a.m. when the Clan face the Western Oregon Wolves on Saturday, September 13.
