Box office now open for tickets to see the Spartans in NYC

By  | 

EAST LANSING, MI. (WILX) -- The Michigan State Spartans will play the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

They accepted the invitation to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Sunday.

"We have 18,000 alumni that live in New York or the metro area so that provides an opportunity for Spartans to gather and to engage with them; will be a great opportunity. Our block is 7,500 seats, but the stadium, I think, holds about 50,000 spectators so there will be plenty of seats available," said Paul Schager, executive associate athletic director for external relations.

Priority ticket requests (with payment) are currently being accepted until 5:00pm ET on Tuesday, Dec.10.

Seating locations will be determined by Spartan Fund priority for ticket requests received by the Dec. 10 deadline.

Wake Forest is 8-4 overall and 4-4 in ACC play and have never played against MSU before.

The Spartans became bowl eligible when they beat Maryland 19-16 on Nov. 30.

The Pinstripe Bowl airs at 3:20 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 27 on ESPN.
