When drum corps fans return to Farrell Stadium on the campus of West Chester University July 30, they will be greeted by wider and more comfortable seating as five top corps bring drum corps back to the greater Philly area for the end-of-season run.

On Wed., July 30 beginning at 7:30 p.m., The Cadets will welcome 2013 DCI World Champions Carolina Crown, seven-time World Champions The Cavaliers and local favorites the Crossmen and Jersey Surf to Drum Corps: An American Tradition Presented by Pepsi at Farrell Stadium in West Chester, Pa.



“Working around the physical limitations of a stadium is a challenge, but there is some flexibility, especially when it comes to seating, to create a better fan experience," said Sean King, Director of Marketing for YEA! and The Cadets. “By renumbering the seats in the reserved seating areas, we can provide more comfort in the seats and improve traffic flow in the aisles."

While these changes may not seem revolutionary, they may be the simple change that leads to an excellent fan experience come July.

In addition to seating improvements, Pepsi has come onboard for 2014 as an official partner of Youth Education in the Arts for the West Chester event.

"Pepsi and YEA! share so many goals between youth, music and physical activity, and we can't wait to see what this partnership holds," King said. "We look forward to exploring some fantastic opportunities with Pepsi for this event and beyond."


Seating sections for Drum Corps: An American Tradition Presented by Pepsi at Farrell Stadium:

  • VIP - High Center Section (will include VIP parking & complimentary program book)
  • Premium Reserved - Middle Center Section
  • Reserved - Between the 30 Yard Lines
  • Value Reserved - Outside 30 Yard Lines
  • Group Tickets will be available for groups of 20 or more later in February.
