Season Tickets

Post by mlaconte459 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 5:37 pm

Hey everyone, recently renewed my season tickets for football so was wondering who on the board gets season tickets compared to going to games or who can’t/it doesn’t make sense to (like if you live in Carolina)

I personally purchased Season Tickets for multiple sports this past year for the first time. After the department moved on from DK and showed that they expected more out of their sports team it was my way to show my support. Very few of us will ever be able to afford a big donation, however in my opinion purchasing season tickets with the current flex plan is a great way to show our support in a very reasonable way. Hell you can get a season ticket for hoops for less than a decent seat for ONE game at the Sox or Bruins.

Part of the reason I feel like I wanted to post this was the continuous departures of coaches and players from programs at our level. Sustained success happens not only with good coaching hires (which I think McCall is) but also when the most dedicated fans do what they can to support a program turning it around. (The non die hards require wins to show up) This is not any one of us being a better or worse fan. If you went through making an account on here you are one of the few that are pretty damn dedicated.

I have football ST. Much easier to devote weekends. Can't make midweek games for hoops. Would love to, but just can't. I also attend women's hoops and hockey. Usually about 3-5 games of men's hockey and hoops and 2-3 women's hoops.

Two additional options for the poll:

Me->Have season tickets for men’s hoops and attend other games-no season tickets.

Have season tickets for another sport-attend other games no season tickets.

With work and family obligations it’s not easy to attend what I attend, let alone go to more games.

I have FB and men’s hoops season tickets, go to the games I can give away tickets when I can’t. I also go to a few hockey and WBB games.

Healthy UMass athletics programs are good for UMass and the economy of WMass.

Football and Basketball season tickets and individual games for other sports. I try to get to hockey, lax and softball.

I have thought about buying into season tickets for another smaller sport, like softball, to further support the department, but have never pulled the trigger.

ST for hoops go to a couple football games with the Dig man who has ST for football. Also donate here and there, usually to athletics.

Too far away for season tickets but watch all the games that are streamed and go to any games played at Davidson. I thought that we would be playing App. St down here this year but don't see them on this years schedule. Must be a future year.

Season tickets for hoops. I don't live in the area anymore but I still make it to 6-8 games every season. I give away the tickets to games I can't make it to.

Hoops only, I don't care much about college football.
