LARAMIE, Wyo. - Game days at Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium this season will offer numerous upgrades for Cowboy Football fans, and Wyoming Athletics hopes fans will take advantage of these improvements to enjoy Cowboy games to their fullest. The focus of the enhancements made to War Memorial Stadium have been made to enable fans easier and quicker entrance into Wyoming Football games in 2015 and provide a more enjoyable experience during the games.
Among the new features designed to improve easier and quicker entrance into the Stadium are:
∙Moving the main Ticket Office for football game days from the Arena-Auditorium Ticket Office to the east side of War Memorial Stadium at the Wildcatter Ticket Office.

∙The Wildcatter Ticket Office will open at 8 a.m. on game days; ∙The number of Wildcatter Ticket Office windows have been increased from 4 to 8 ticket windows to better handle the demand for ticket purchases on game days;
∙The number of ticket scanners have been increased at entrance gates on the east side of War Memorial to enable quicker entrance into the stadium. Gates to the stadium will open 2 hours prior to kickoff; ∙Bag check lines have also been moved outside of ticket gate entrances to speed up the ticket-scanning process as fans enter the stadium;
∙Up until 90 minutes before game time, a designated 15-minute parking area on 22nd Street east of the stadium will be provided for fans to park temporarily before purchasing or picking up Will Call tickets at the Wildcatter Ticket Office;

This information booth will be located near the 15-minute parking area on 22nd Street; ∙Parents and family members of players may pick up player-pass tickets at Gate 7 beginning 3 hours prior to kickoff. Once tickets are picked up, individuals may enter the game at that time or have their hand stamped to enable them to leave and reenter the stadium at a later time;

Pregame: Shuttle buses pick up at Cowboy Baseball Field Lot and the Brown Lot north of the stadium and drop off in the circle area outside of Gate 8.
