In the animal kingdom, football is played with cheetah running backs, buffalo linemen, and a seagull that is forced to curl up and act as the ball. Catch humanity's version of the animals' gridiron gallantry with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one reserved-level ticket to an Akron Zips football game. Purchase a Groupon for one (or both) of the following games at InfoCision Stadium – Summa Field:
- Akron Zips vs. Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs on Saturday, September 11, 2010, at 12 p.m.
- Akron Zips vs. Western Michigan Broncos on Saturday, October 23, 2010, at 3:30 p.m.
Those buying multiple tickets can request adjoining seats when picking up the tickets at the main gate on your chosen game day. A reserved-level ticket (a $20 value) offers views largely unobstructed by low-flying blimps or the fog of war (see this page for a color-coded map of stadium seating). Get an up-close glimpse of the Akron Zips as they take the turf to face their hulking nemeses from Gardner-Webb and Western Michigan. To fuel fans' frantic support, 10 concession stands spread their fuel throughout InfoCision Stadium – Summa Field, a modern-day coliseum that is capable of holding up to 30,000 spectators collectively willing the Zips to victory.
Football, which first became popular back when American families were big and tough enough to field full teams of siblings, now provides exciting sports action for today’s much smaller families. Snag a few tickets to treat family or friends to a taste of American history, or gather up a group of casual chums to pose as your family as you morally support the Zips as they quest for the elusive touchdown.
