EASTON, Pa. - The 2014 Lafayette football schedule will include four games at Fisher Stadium while Lafayette will also host the 150th meeting of college football's most-played rivalry on Nov. 22 at Yankee Stadium.
Season ticket packages will go on sale on Nov. 1 on Goleopards.com or through the Lafayette ticket office (610-330-5471, firstname.lastname@example.org). Season ticket prices remain the same as 2013: $52 for adults, $36 for seniors and $24 for youth. Coke Zone tickets will cost $160 per person. Single-game parking passes will be available for sale in the summer of 2014.
Those season ticket holders wanting to purchase Lafayette-Lehigh tickets in prime seating locations for the 150th meeting in Yankee Stadium can do so with a promotional code that will be supplied to them before the tickets go on sale to the general public.
Lafayette will open the season on the road for the third time in four seasons, traveling to Sacred Heart in Fairfield, Conn. on Sept. 6. The Leopards will play their second straight Northeast Conference foe a week later when Robert Morris comes to College Hill on Sept. 13 as part of Family Weekend. Lafayette traveled to Western Pennsylvania in 2012.
For the third straight season, Lafayette will play William & Mary of the Colonial Athletic Association. The teams have split the first two meetings of the four-game series which runs through 2015. The Leopards close out the opening month of the season on Sept. 27 by hosting Wagner. Despite their proximity, the two teams have met only twice (1976 and 1979).
October marks the opening of Patriot League play and Lafayette will have perhaps its toughest challenge against a Fordham squad that will have a full complement of scholarship athletes. In 2013, Fordham has ascended to the top 10 in the nation and is looking for an NCAA at-large berth while it is currently ineligible for the Patriot League's automatic qualifier. The Patriot League associate member will again be eligible for the conference title in 2014.
A week later on Oct. 11, Lafayette hosts Georgetown before the final non-league game of the year at Harvard. October ends with Homecoming Weekend against Holy Cross on Oct. 25.
As the calendar moves to November, the Leopards will look to make a run at the Patriot League title, traveling to Bucknell on Nov. 1 and Colgate on Nov. 8. Lafayette will have a bye week on Nov. 15 before the 2014 regular season closes with the 150th meeting of college's football's most played and longest-consecutive rivalry.
For the 2014 Lafayette-Lehigh game, student ticket prices start at $35 for end zone/200 level seating. Most seating in the 200 level will cost $50 while seats at the field level will cost $75. Other seating options are available through the Lafayette ticket office. Tickets purchased through the majority of Lafayette's ticket allotment will be on the first/base side of stadium. For additional information concerning transportation, tailgating and other events surrounding the 150th meeting visit Rivalry150.com in November.
