A new concession stand is being added at the top of the bleachers for easier customer access to snacks and drinks. The FSU Department of Athletics will offer a shuttle service from the campus parking lots to the field on game day.

“The Department of Athletics is always looking for new ways to add to the fan experience and family friendly atmosphere of our home football games at Duvall-Rosier Field,” said Athletic Director Tim McNeely. “We are thankful for the community support our student-athletes have received over the years and look forward to the beginning of an exciting new year for Fighting Falcons Athletics.”
