Nevada Athletics announced two updates to the fan experience for the 2023 athletic season, Wednesday.
Starting in August, concessions at Mackay Stadium and Lawlor Events Center will go cashless for Nevada Athletics events. Nevada Athletics concessionaire Sodexo will be removing cash as a payment option for athletic sponsored events at both Mackay Stadium and Lawlor Events Center in an effort to enhance efficiency at checkout and improve the overall fan experience at games. Concession stands will only accept credit or debit cards moving forward.
Also this fall, Nevada Athletics will execute a comprehensive postgame exit plan from around Mackay Stadium, in an effort to make exiting the venue and the campus area more timely and efficient for fans following football games.
The plan is the result of a partnership and planning between the University, Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), City of Reno, Reno PD, Reno FD, RTC, Nevada Barricade and Sign, KEOLIS and REMSA. Here is a full map of parking zones and exit routes.
Nevada Football parking passes for the 2023 season are available for purchase online or by calling 775-348-PACK. Season parking passes start at $100 while season parking passes start at $100 and include all six home games.
In an effort to reduce traffic and wait times for fans leaving Mackay Stadium, specific exit routes have been devised for the West, East, and South lots between Virginia Street and Evans Avenue.
East Stadium Way will serve as the boundary separating the West and East Lots, while 15th Street is designated the northern boundary for the South Lots.
