The Athletics Ticket Office, located along Northwestern Avenue in the Mackey Arena Complex, opens three hours prior before kickoff and will remain open through halftime. A John Purdue Club representative will be available at Window 10 to assist members with any questions.

Fans making their way to campus on gameday will want to tune in to live pregame coverage on radio, starting three hours before kickoff. The two-hour "Countdown to Kickoff" show sets the stage and can be heard on WAZY (96.5 FM) in the Lafayette-West Lafayette area, followed by the pregame show on the Boilermaker Sports Network. Game broadcasts - with Tim Newton, Pete Quinn and Kelly Kitchel and Rob Blackman - also can be heard on, via the TuneIn mobile app and on Sirius XM Radio.

Fans, especially families, looking for fun before home games will want to check out Boilermaker Crossing. Meet-the-team events, inflatable games and live entertainment highlight the list of activities. Boilermaker Crossing, which starts three hours before kickoff and runs until 30 minutes before kickoff, is located on the Sally & Bob Weist Plaza between Mackey Arena and Holloway Gymnasium. It is free and open to fans of all ages. The "Countdown to Kickoff" radio show originates from Boilermaker Crossing, as well.

Ninety minutes before kickoff, the Purdue "All-American" Marching Band will perform a pregame concert on Slayter Hill.

The gates to Ross-Ade will open 90 minutes before kickoff. The Ross-Ade Pavilion will open two hours prior to the start of each game. Purdue Athletics has implemented a no re-entry policy for Ross-Ade in 2017. There are no pass-outs, and fans who choose to exit the stadium will not be allowed to re-enter.

In an effort to provide a safer environment and to expedite fan entry, there is a clear bag policy in place for Ross-Ade for the 2017 season. Fans are encouraged not to bring any type of bags to games, and only the following are permissible:

~ One bag that is clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and does not exceed 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches
~ One one-gallon clear plastic bag (Ziploc bag or similar)

Also permissible is one small clutch bag (no larger than 4.5 inches by 6.5 inches) - approximately the size of a hand - with or without a handle or strap.

Exceptions will be made for ticket holders with medically necessary items and/or diaper bags (with a child/children present). Those patrons will be admitted only at the First Aid gates on the northeast and northwest sides of the stadium upon having their bag(s) inspected.

The following items also may not be brought into the stadium: weapons, alcoholic beverages, tobacco products and e-cigarettes, umbrellas, strollers, noisemakers and irritants, objects that interfere with the comfort or block the view of other patrons, cans, glass bottles, food, drinks and coolers, and pets.

Concession stands, managed by Boilermaker Hospitality, offer a wide variety of options from gameday classics such as hot dogs, hamburgers and french fries to local favorites like pork tenderloin sandwiches and new specialty items like duck wings and the Boiler Up Hammer Down Dog, a jumbo hot dog topped with black bean salsa, shredded cheddar cheese and mustard. Furthermore, there are offerings from popular local brands to add diversity to the menu. Beer and wine are available for purchase throughout the stadium, with the exception of the concourse area immediately adjacent to the student seating sections. Stands inside the stadium open 90 minutes before kickoff. A new point of sale system should expedite concession service.

Football season-ticket holders and Purdue students who are members of the Ross-Ade Brigade may visit the South End Zone Patio with their access card and purchase tailgate food and beverages, including draft beer and wine. The patio opens 90 minutes before kickoff and closes at the end of the game. Fans can enter via Gate A and Gate N from outside the stadium or from the bottom of sections 101 and 129 from inside the stadium. Once inside the stadium, however, access is only via sections 101 and 129. The patio features a tent, pergolas and an array of patio-style furniture, including tables with umbrellas. Televisions are mounted throughout.

Lost and Found is located behind Section 115. Articles not claimed during or immediately after the game are turned over to the Athletics Ticket Office (765.494.3194). Items will be kept in the ticket office for approximately 14 days after each game.

You, our guests, are the focus of everything we do. The Purdue Athletics staff is here to make your Ross-Ade Stadium experience a special and memorable one. Enjoy the game, have a great day - and BOILER UP!
