The 2017-18 season for Texas Tech Red Raider Basketball officially starts on Friday, November 10, and there will be a big change this season for those attending games at the United Supermarkets Arena.

Each season since the United Supermarkets Arena first opened, there has been some sort of free parking available in the West Commuter Lot, west of Indiana Avenue. Well, that free parking is no more. This year, all of the the free parking for Red Raider Basketball games has been moved to a completely different part of campus.

According to PDF's posted on the TexasTech.com website, free parking for Red Raider Basketball is now located in the S-1 Parking Lot, located at 10th Street and the Texas Tech Parkway near the John Walker Soccer Complex (above photo). Texas Tech will set up the S-1 Parking Lot to be a "Park & Ride" lot with Citibus buses transporting fans to the United Supermarkets Arena.

The three parking lots directly adjacent to the United Supermarkets Arena, now labeled "A", "B", and "C", have been changed to either Season Ticket Holder or Red Raider Club Donor Parking (above photo).

ADA Parking will remain on a first-come, first-served basis, in the West Parking Lot of the United Supermarkets Arena off of Indiana Avenue.

Again, these changes are only in effect for Red Raider Basketball games. Texas Tech Lady Raider Basketball games will have a different set up for their parking.
