STARKVILLE — Mississippi State sports fans will soon pay a lot less at the concession stand. Prices on food and beverages at all home venues will be significantly decreased beginning this 2018-19 athletic year, the school’s athletics department announced Thursday.

Stadium cup sodas, which were previously in the $5-7 range, will now cost $3 for a 22-ounce and $4 for a 44-ounce. Bottled water in the 20-ounce size has been slashed in half from $4 to $2. Hot dogs, nacho trays and soft pretzels have been reduced by $3, going from $5 to $2.

In all, a dozen menu items including pizza, barbecue sandwiches and chicken tenders were all reduced.
The price reductions are in effect at all MSU home venues — Davis Wade Stadium, Humphrey Coliseum, Dudy Noble Field, Newell-Grissom Building, MSU Soccer Field, Nusz Park and the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre.

The drop in concession prices is one of several fan game day enhancements in progress on campus as part of Mississippi State’s “#MoorValue campaign,” which takes its name from new football head coach Joe Moorhead.

Earlier this spring, Mississippi State unveiled a football season ticket price decrease of up to 20 percent for several sections of Davis Wade Stadium.

“As we work with Athletics and our MSU dining partner Aramark to create a more fan and family-friendly game day experience for our Bulldog family, I believe this new comprehensive plan for concessions is a key element to increasing value for our fans,” Mississippi State President Mark E. Keenum said in a statement.
