The Dalton State athletic department has announced that fans who have purchased season tickets for Roadrunner basketball are now able to pick-up those tickets at the box office to the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center.

Richard Skeel, senior associate athletic director, said 720 tickets are already allocated to those who have already paid for tickets.

In addition, fans who have not yet purchased tickets may do so at the box office.

Reserved seat season tickets are $100 each. General Admission season tickets are also available for $80 each. After an allocation of tickets for Dalton State students and staff, officials say they expect the first few games to be sell-outs.

Details on how students and staff will be able to pick-up tickets will be released later.

This is the inaugural season for intercollegiate athletics at Dalton State. The Roadrunner basketball team is coached by Tony Ingle, former NCAA Division II Coach of the Year.

Following a silver and blue scrimmage on Saturday at Dalton High, all games will be played at the trade center.
