Published 10:25pm Tuesday, October 22, 2013

There are so many reasons to watch the Trojans play on Halloween night it is almost scary, according to information from Troy University Athletics.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m. at Tailgate Terrace, there will be face painting, trick-or-treating and other activities for children, including the usual inflatable activities at Riddle Pace Field.

Children 12 and under who are dressed in a Halloween costume will also be admitted to the game, for free. Children in costume must check in at the Halloween decorated Troy tent in Tailgate Terrace between 4:30 and 6 p.m. to receive a free general admission ticket.

Besides the Halloween-related deals, veterans and active duty military can purchase $8 general admission tickets and university faculty and staff can purchase a Faculty/Staff Four Pack in general admission for $16.

Tickets are available at the Tine Davis Fieldhouse, or by calling 1-877-878-WINS. A valid Troy University ID will be required for faculty/staff seating purchases and tickets must be purchased by Oct. 30.

Troy is set to kick off against the University of Louisiana Monroe at 6:30 p.m. on Halloween in Veterans Memorial Stadium. The game against the Warhawks will be televised live by ESPNU.

The award-winning Sound of the South marching band will also perform a pregame show honoring America’s veterans and a special Halloween halftime show.
