Butts in the Seats 2018 edition

Recommended Posts

So..we just need more advertising. Or cheaper tickets. Or better in-game promotions. Or beer in the seats. Or arena renovations. :D

I say win baby win.

haha amen, winning is all that matters. I just wouldn't waste much money on advertising. I have no idea what the numbers are, but I think you already have your core fans in the area and it's not going to expand much without buzz for the team or buzz for the home atmosphere. Easier said than done, but if you get the students you get the home atmosphere that makes a difference.

Well, if we want arena renovations then we need two things:

1. Butts in the seats to require more space

2. Money

Butts in the seats = Money

Money comes from the ticket sales obviously, but more importantly butts in the seats means more value to corporate donations and sponsorships.

I did my part by convincing my company to become a sponsor last season (and hopefully this season, not yet approved). The school can only do so much with the resources they have. The point of this thread (and earlier versions from past seasons) was to see if we, as in the fanbase that's rabid enough to read an post on a message board, could come up with ideas to share with the school that might help increase attendance. We can't all make donations in the 5-7 figure range, but we can do our part to help grow the program. 

I am sure we have others on this board that can suggest to their companies to sponsor the program, that's a start.
