LARAMIE, Wyo. -
As a thank you to current season ticket holders for Wyoming Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball, the supporters who are "More Than a Fan", the Wyoming Athletics Department has announced an exciting new season ticket incentive and referral program.
In an effort to increase season ticket sales, these new programs will both benefit current season ticket holders and hopefully attract more fans to buying season tickets.
To begin with, any season ticket holder who refers a friend to purchase season tickets of their own, or orders at least one additional season ticket for themselves, will receive a special gift. For Cowboy season ticket holders that gift is a "More Than a Fan" exclusive t-shirt. For Cowgirl season ticket holders that gift is a Cowgirl basketball scroll that can be displayed at games.
Then for all season ticket holders, there will be nine men's and nine women's games where they can take advantage of special discounts. During those games, fans simply need to show their season ticket at the Brown and Gold Outlet store inside the Arena-Auditorium or any UW Concessions Stand for a special discount. The specials could include 2-for-1 on merchandise and concessions, $1 concession items and a percentage off at the Brown and Gold.
"Thus far in football we have seen success with our ticket sales and attendance, and are averaging more than 20,000 fans each game, which hasn't happened in some time," Josh Rebholz, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Development and Revenue Enhancement said. "Now we are starting to concentrate our efforts towards men's and women's basketball ticket sales. Our season ticket holders in football, men's basketball and women's basketball truly are more than just a fan, and these incentive and referral programs for basketball are just another way for us to recognize their tremendous support."
As another incentive to purchase season tickets for the first time, the priority seating donation requirements for men's basketball have decreased in order to purchase tickets in the lower sections of M and A. The value in purchasing season tickets is huge, and for example, adds up to a 38 percent savings off of single-game tickets in men's basketball.
Season tickets and single-game tickets are now available for both the Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball seasons. In addition, fans can purchase the Cowboy/Cowgirl Weekender Package. For Cowboy basketball, fans can purchase a seat to all eight Saturday games for the low price of $64 for adults and $32 for youth. For the Cowgirls, fans can get a ticket to all seven Saturday games and one Friday game for $60 for adults and $30 for youth.
