WELCOME TO K-STATE On behalf of Kansas State University, I would like to welcome you to campus and to Bill Snyder Family Stadium for Wildcat Football. We look forward to hosting nearly 350,000 of the best fans in the country throughout this season. Our home schedule features seven home contests, four of which will be against Big 12 opponents.  We hope that your attendance and support will help lead Head Coach Bill Snyder and the ‘Cats to another successful season as they seek their third straight bowl game appearance. This guide is another step in our efforts to provide the Best Fan Experience in the Big 12 and contains information regarding ticket pricing, maps, stadium policies and more.  We also encourage you to participate in our weekly survey at www.kstatesports.com/survey to tell us about your visit.   We look forward to seeing you all season long!   Go ‘Cats!

Additionally, a new Fan Store and Hall of Honor will be included on the main Concourse Level. In addition to being a first-class facility for K-State student-athletes and fans, the West Stadium Center at Bill Snyder Family Stadium will serve as the northwest gateway to campus and a rallying point for the University’s visionary “K-State 2025” plan. The Terrace Level will feature a dining hall to serve the daily dietary needs of all K-State student-athletes. The Tailgate Terrace will be a great place to enjoy the unique tailgate atmosphere of a K-State gameday. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th levels of the West Stadium Center will have outdoor Suite, Club and Loge seating. These seats will have the best sight lines in College Football and will be the premier seating area for Wildcat Fans. All suite, loge and club season-ticket holders will enjoy an all-inclusive food and beverage experience in the spacious lounges located behind each seating area. The 5th level of the West Stadium Center will be designated for media and coaches on game-days and will be the new permanent home for the K-State Media relations office.

It is extremely important that you know and abide by NCAA rules.

K-STATE SONGS FIGHT SONG Fight you K-State Wildcats For Alma Mater fight-fight-fight! Glory into combat for the purple and white Faithful to our colors, we shall ever be, fighting ever fighting for a Wildcat Victory! ALMA MATER I know a spot that I love full well, ‘Tis not in forest nor yet in dell, ever it holds me with magic spell, I think of thee Alma Mater. KSU, we’ll carry the banner high, KSU long, long may thy colors fly. Loyal you to thee they children shall swell the cry. Hail, Hail, Hail Alma Mater. WABASH CANNONBALL Everyone knows that familiar tune Wabash Cannonball. In fact, Wabash and K-State are almost synonymous. What many people do not know is how the song became an integral part of Wildcat athletics. In the fall of 1969 the department of music was consumed in a fire. Every piece of music in the building was destroyed. The only thing that was salvaged was what was in the band director’s brief case. That included a piece of music titled the Wabash Cannonball. With an upcoming football game and no music, that left only one thing to do. The band members played the song loud and often. A song that originally had no connection to K-State Athletics has since become a second fight song.
