The Marshall ticket office will be hosting a Choose-A-Seat program on Saturday, June 22, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

Ticket office representatives located at gate A on the west side of the stadium will be available to let customers know exactly which specific seats are available for sale.

Football posters, schedule cards and other collateral material will be available for those who attend the Choose-A-Seat program.
