NIU’s game days have multiple steps to enjoying a game.

Big things are coming to Huskie Stadium this year! Football is back, and so are changes to our home stadium, and the Northern Star is here to give you the run down on it all.

In regards to parking and tickets, there will be free parking at the Convocation Center with your ticket. Home tickets are free for all students, but you should make sure to always download them to your mobile wallet for easy access. If you leave the game and plan on re-entering, you can only do so after half time; additionally, your ticket must be scanned upon exit and scanned once again upon your return.

A quick reminder about the bag policy for the stadium: only clear bags or clutch purses will be allowed into the stadium, exceptions will only be made for medical reasons after inspection.

Masks are no longer required at Huskie Stadium. You are welcome to wear masks at your own discretion, but they are not mandated.

Concessions are now cashless. Huskie Stadium, including The Yard or premium areas, is no longer accepting cash for any concessions. Payments can be made using a card, Apple Pay or Google Wallet – although, Sodexo will be on either side of the stadium and will be selling gift cards that can be purchased with cash and used for all concessions at Huskie Stadium.

New specialty food-items will also be sold in Huskie Stadium, from BBQ pulled pork Nachos and sandwiches to new cheese and pepperoni pizzas, make sure you try all the new foods this season.

Check out the flagship radio station of the Huskies, 94-9 WDKB. The station will be hosting the “Toyota Huskie Nation Pre-Game Party Show” for every game which starts 90 minutes before kickoff. For home games, the show will broadcast live from The Yard and will feature special guests from throughout the community.
