INDIANAPOLIS – Tickets for the 2013 NCAA Division I Football Championship game will go on sale Thursday at 11 a.m. ET. Tickets may be purchased online at www.ncaa.com/fcs for two seating locations within the stadium: midfield ($35) and sideline ($30).
The championship game is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET in the 20,086-seat, multi-purpose FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas, on Jan. 5, 2013, and will be televised nationally on ESPN2 and ESPN3.
The championship game is the culmination of a 20-team playoff bracket that includes 10 conference champions and another 10 teams that gain access through at-large selection. The bracket will be announced Nov. 18.
This will be the third year the game has been played in Frisco. Eastern Washington beat Delaware 20-19 in the 2011 championship game, while North Dakota State beat Sam Houston State 17-6 in front of a sellout crowd in the 2012 game. Another sellout crowd is anticipated for this season’s game, so fans are encouraged to secure tickets early.
Groups of 15 or more or those interested in purchasing suites or in other private seating areas can call (469) 365-0000 for more details. Accessible seating must be purchased at the FC Dallas Stadium box office or by calling the same number.
The Football Championship Subdivision embodies a tradition of excellence through high level competition, student-athlete character and sportsmanship throughout the regular season and championship.
