LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Sales are brisk for the NM State home opener on Sept. 12 as the Aggies are out to ‘Stuff the Stadium’ against Georgia State. The game, sponsored by FirstLight Federal Credit Union, has less than 6,000 tickets remaining for the 6 p.m. kickoff at Aggie Memorial Stadium.

For this special “Stuff the Stadium” promotion, over 40 local business people have partnered with the NM State athletic staff to sell out the home opener. An aggressive pricing plan means most seats in the stadium are just $5, though there are limited premium seats available for $10 or $15.

“It is tremendous to see Aggie fans and the community get behind this campaign,” said NM State Director of Athletics Mario Moccia. “I can’t thank our ‘Stuff the Stadium’ sales committee enough for their hard work, dedication and belief that every ticket in Aggie Memorial Stadium can be sold. I also want to thank FirstLight Federal Credit Union for working with us as the title sponsor of the game.”

“FirstLight is excited to be partnering with New Mexico State University to Stuff the Stadium on Sept. 12th,”said FirstLight Senior Vice President of Marketing Jim Huff. “Just as this game is an opportunity for the community to show its pride in our University, we saw this as an opportunity for FirstLight to demonstrate our pride in the Las Cruces community.”

In addition to the Stuff the Stadium campaign, the contest is also a White Out, meaning fans are strongly encouraged to wear white to the game. NM State students will participate in a Beach Bash tailgate party next door at the NM State Soccer Athletic Complex and this year’s incoming freshmen will lead the team on the field in the Aggie Ramble.

The game is the first of five home games for the Aggies this season, with the Battle of I-10 against UTEP coming the following week on Sept. 19.

Season tickets, as well as all individual game tickets, are on sale at the Pan American Center Ticket Office. Tickets are available by calling (575) 646-1420, or by going online at NMStateSports.com and following the tickets link.
