[VIDEO] New Cardinal Cabanas Coming to the Scheu for Ball State Football

I remember back when I was a student, I was fortunate to watch a couple of games from the old Ball State Stadium pressbox suites. “Suites” was a loosely defined term back then, as the amenities were limited to some mini ham sandwiches and metal folding chairs. Ambiance, this did not have. Since then, the powers that be in Muncie have improved nearly every facet of gameday operations, including the luxury boxes at The Scheu.

No one can argue that the luxury boxes are gorgeous. Those frigid days in central Indiana in late November? Doesn’t bother suite-goers at all as they are behind glass. But it’s biggest draw (weather protection) can also become its greatest curse in that there is a significant removal from the true football game experience. You can’t hear the crowd. You can’t feel the band. But no longer are your premium luxury options limited to private boxes and a thick barrier between you and the Cardinal football experience. Ball State has a new and (in my opinion) awesome option that lets you be as close to the action as possible, all while eating and drinking with up to 24 of your closest friends…. the all new Cardinal Cabanas!

What’s the Cardinal Cabanas? Let General Manager of Ball State properties Chris Ulm explain…

Green space and cold beers? I’m sold. Here’s the print version of the Cabana details: Cardinal Cabana Information

So contact Chris Ulm and bring your drinking boots to The Scheu on gameday Saturdays, Cabana-style!

  1. Who in their right mind would pay that kind of money for a Ball State game? Rediculous. And jesus Alan, hit the salad bar.

  2. In reality, it’s a pretty good deal considering what you’re getting. But something tells me you may have blown right through that .PDF. Reading and all. Also, you should hit the dictionary.

  3. A very good deal for commercial, industrial entities or even larger groups of family and friends!

    Thanks for posting and a very positive step in the right direction from the University.

  4. Good idea, but priced for business, not personal/family gatherings. 1 pop per person? 1.2 beers per person? Really?

    $65-75 per person.Tops. It’s not like this is a proven promotion, that has seen demand. Start at this price point and build demand. Once demand has been established keep raising the price until you find the high-water mark.

    I don’t want to see new ideas fail due to overpricing at a currently low-demand event.
