Tickets are officially on sale now to watch the Fairfield University men’s and women’s basketball programs play during the 2021-2022 season. The men’s team are slated to play 15 home games this upcoming season while the women have 13 home games on the schedule. Since the programs said a somber goodbye to Alumni Hall last semester, all home games will be held at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Conn. 

Webster Bank Arena is just under four miles from Fairfield University’s campus, and has an impressive reputation regarding sporting events. They host the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Islanders, and have had a relationship with Fairfield basketball since their doors opened in 2001. The arena has hosted Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference basketball championship events, as well as National Collegiate Athletic Association championship tournaments for men’s ice hockey and women’s basketball

The official website of the department of athletics reports that the arena will be able to host events at full capacity, which is a stark contrast to last season when spectators were barred from most basketball games.

For games being held at Webster Bank Arena, the Fairfield University athletic department has confirmed that there will be shuttles that will bus students to and from the arena, as well as free admission for students and faculty. 

“We anticipate that our partnerships with student organizations on campus as well as the free transportation and added amenities at Webster Bank Arena will continue to attract students to basketball games,” Sarah Ratchford, assistant director of athletics/marketing & fan experience stated.

Season tickets have been on sale since July 6, and are available for purchase on FairfieldStags.com/TIX. Mid-court season tickets start at $130.00 for children under 12 years old and senior citizens 65 years of age or older, and $195.00 for adults. End-court season tickets are less expensive, selling for $110.00 for senior citizens and children, and $135.00 for adults. Parking passes are an additional $75.00 for the season and can be purchased on the same website. 

Students however, are able to reserve game tickets through the Stags in the Stands app. Although these tickets are free for students, there may be certain capacity restrictions which may alter how many tickets can be reserved for each game; at Webster Bank Arena, though, full capacity has been greenlit. A Super Stag notification will be sent out once capacity for an event has been reached. 

This policy was updated as of April 17, 2021, which still called for social distancing as well as masks at the time. Although Fairfield University requires the wearing of face coverings indoors, it appears as though students attending games now have the option while outdoors.

Any questions regarding ticketing can be addressed by calling (203) 254-4136 or emailing stagstickets@fairfield.edu

Webster Bank Arena will host the women’s team’s season-opener against Brown University Bears on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 7:00 p.m.. Shortly after, the men’s team will take to their home court for the first time on November 16 at 7:00 p.m. against the Medgar Evers College Cougars.
