The Wichita Falls Nighthawks are more than just a professional indoor football team. We are Nighthawk Nation!
Fans will be right on top of the action as the fast paced game happens just inches from our ‘Nose-Bleed Seats’. That’s right, the first four rows are so close to the action that fans have to pay attention or they might take a hit from one of the 60 balls that will go into the stands. Any lucky fan that catches a ball gets to keep it! We do ask that players that go into the stands are returned, no exceptions. There’s not bad seat in the house, and everyone gets to enjoy the climate-controlled environment of the KYC.
**All Tickets Increase $2.00 on Game Day.
