The start of a new college football season often means changes to the game-day experience, and Doak Campbell Stadium will feature its share of improvements for 2012.
For starters, AT&T and Verizon have both made upgrades to improve cell phone service at the stadium. While there is no guarantee that all phone calls and data transmissions will go through the first time -- particularly when the stadium is filled to capacity -- FSU assistant athletic director for marketing Jason Dennard said customers of those two companies should see improved service.
“If you have Verizon or AT&T, you should have better luck,” Dennard said.
Another change is in the way students enter the stadium.
“In the past, students would go online to get their tickets, and then they’d get emailed a PDF copy of their ticket with a bar code on it,” Dennard said. “Then they’d bring that with their FSU card to the gates.”
