Interning with FAU athletics!

So I just got the thumbs up for an internship with Florida Atlanitc Athletics.  Im working in Ticket Sales/Marketing and promotions.  I hope I can try and bring out some new fans to fill up some seats!  I'll probably be posting in here a lot trying to find new ideas that you guys might have!  Thanks, and good Shabbos! lol

Congrats SlimJim!

Dump the parking for men's hoops and lower the ticket price to coincide with the bottom school's pricing tier in the Belt.

We aren't storied, and we don't have a fan base to support $12 entry + $5 parking per contest as a SEASON ticket price for an upper level seat…

We aren't there yet…get butts in the seats and a legitimate following over 1500 a game before trying that!

Football prices are fair, IMO.

Just my two cents ;D

Completely agree.  And a few other things…include car stickers and fridge magnets in the package season ticket holders receive.  It wouldn't be a bad idea to include marketing material on other merchandise they can buy and where…we need to get  FAU's name out there more and no easier way to do than fans sporting the merchandise.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

You gotta partner with local businesses too. Give the local business owners tickets. They'll come out and bring their families. Then once they enjoy themselves, they'll come on a regular basis and start putting up FAU stuff in their stores/restaurants. It's just a continuous cycle of reinforcement.

Most businesses I've talked to in Boca said they'd put up FAU stuff if someone gave it to them.

Re: Interning with FAU athletics!

I was thinking about this the other day but it might already exist, but how about a few buses or something to bring students to the games at Lockhart? (or even Landshark)  There are probably some students living on campus who would like to go to the games but just can't because of distance.

Re: Interning with FAU athletics!

You guys have some great ideas.  Pairing up with some local business's sounds like a great idea to start getting more people interested to the games.  I haven't even started yet and I'm gonna have some great ideas to bring to the table lol.

And regarding the buses there are buses that bring students from FAU to Lockhart.

Question:  What perks do you get for purchasing season tickets?  Free Parking or anything? I dunno.. could any season ticket holders could answer that please just for my knowledge

No real perks that I know off other then gaining points in the Owl Club.

Havent got my tickets yet, but hopefully there is something in there. Last year we got a DVD of the 07 season culminating in the NOBowl win. That was very nice. I watched it right before the Motor City Bowl.

I agree with Walty too, throw in a schedule magnet, FAUL hand towel, just a lil something to reward those who pay in advance for thier tickets. I doubt that would be very expensive and would go a LONG way in advanceing the brand and showing some love.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

There's a voucher in there for you to redeem a mini football at Fan Fest or one of the first two home game if you renewed early this year but that's it as far as goodies go.

I sure hope all of those owl club points I've been accumulating come in handy when the stadium opens!
