North Texas Launches New Outreach To DISD Middle Schools
Program To Allow Seventh, Eighth Grade Football Players To Experience Apogee, NT Football
DENTON - The North Texas Athletic Department is launching a new outreach program to the Denton Independent School District to allow seventh and eighth graders to experience a Mean Green football game.
In coordination with DISD, the Middle School Apogee Experience will allow seventh- and eighth-grade football players selected by their middle-school football coaches to get an up-close game-day experience at Apogee Stadium beginning Sept. 19, when the North Texas football team hosts the Rice Owls.
Each football player selected by their coach will receive a complementary ticket to the game, a chance to be on the field during pre-game warm-ups, and a commemorative game credential.
Family and friends of the selected middle-school players are encouraged to enjoy the Apogee Experience as well. Discounted tickets are available for $10 each online via the following Middle School Apogee Experience link. You will need your school's promo code, which can be obtained from your middle-school coach, to secure tickets. All tickets purchased online through link and promo code will be available for pickup on game day at any Apogee Stadium ticket office with a photo ID.
Apogee Stadium is located at the corner of I-35 and Bonnie Brae in Denton. The parking lots immediately surrounding Apogee stadium are reserved for donors to the Mean Green Club, whose donations help offset the cost of athletic scholarships. Game day parking is located at Fouts Field off of the I-35 North Service Road and North Texas Blvd. Parking in these lots, designated as Orange Lots, is $10, cash only. Free parking is available on campus on the northeast side of North Texas Blvd.
Review the Apogee Stadium Game Day Parking Map for directions, traffic flow and access to the Orange lot and other on-campus parking. From the Orange lot, it is a brief five to 10 minute walk across the pedestrian bridge over I-35 to the spacious grounds of Apogee Stadium. The landing of the pedestrian bridge will place you near Gate 3, where you can redeem your tickets and enter the stadium. Gates open 90 minutes prior to kickoff.
