SWOSU Night at the Yard Dawgz Game


The Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz home opener on April 21 has been named “SWOSU Night at the Yard Dawgz Game.”

The event is being sponsored by the SWOSU Admissions and Recruitment Office and the Collegiate Activities Board. Tickets for the game will be half of the regular admission price.

Oklahoma City will be hosting the Quad City Steamwheelers at the Ford Center on Saturday, April 21, at 7:05 pm. As a special treat, the Grambling State University Tiger Marching Band will perform the National Anthem, a half-time routine and a post- game performance. The band has made five Super Bowl appearances and was featured in the movie “Drumline.”

The OKC Yard Dawgz arena football team has made it to the playoffs each of the three years it has existed. The Yard Dawgz ended the 2006 regular season with a record of 11-5.

“This should be a fun evening,” said Rebecca Manney, recruiter for the SWOSU Admissions and Recruitment office. “We hope to have a great turnout of SWOSU employees, students, and their friends and families.”

Tickets for the arena football game can be ordered in the Admissions and Recruitment Office (Stafford 207) or the Dean of Students Office (Stafford 214). The cost per ticket at the time of order is $5. Pre-ordered tickets will be available for pickup in the Admissions and Recruitment office on Thursday, April 18.
