Guidelines to Gameday!

by Frank Mercogliano

Revamped Albertson’s Howl Zone: The game day experience begins long before fans take their seats inside the stadium. With the new revamped Albertson’s Howl Zone opening three (3) hours prior to kickoff. With fun for every age the Howl Zone will feature a kid’s zone area with inflatables, face painters, and balloon artists; an inflatable area with other activities sponsored by National Guard and a LIVE DJ throughout all of Howl Zone. The Lobo Radio Pre-Show will kick off one hour prior to gameday and be featured inside Lobo One. If you would like to have a tailgate reserved spot in our Howl Zone this season, please go to and go to the Tailgate Tent Order Form page!

Lobo Walk: Will take place an hour and half prior to the start of the game. The Lobos will make their way through the Howl Zone and then enter through the Northeast gate.

Mobile Ticketing and Parking: As previously announced, UNM Athletics has moved to digital ticketing for both tickets into the game and parking. Fans can access their tickets and parking tickets from their phones and are encouraged to download tickets before arriving to the stadium to ensure they are easily accessible. Once downloaded, cell phone service and Wi-Fi are not needed. To learn more please visit our mobile ticketing guide page at

Clear Bag Policy: As previously announced, UNM Athletics will be implementing a clear bag policy at ALL athletic events. These policies significantly expedite fan entry into all stadiums. Clear bags may be no larger than 12”x6”x12”. For more information on the clear bag policy visit Zia Graphics will be at the Northeast and Northwest with clear bags available for purchase.
