The new student booster club is in the final stages of finalizing its plans for the upcoming football season. Per new Western Athletic Conference rules, the student section will not sit directly behind the visiting team bench. The REDZONE will encompass the first 20 rows of sections 36, 37, and 38, roughly the southeast corner of Bulldog Stadium.

The idea is the create a clear block of red on the games with a very rowdy section. Final details have not been worked regarding the color shirt/sweatshirt they will wear, but red is the obvious favorite over the current white shirts worn at the Save Mart Center. The REDZONE is trying to collaborate with the band to help bolster the section at football games this Fall.

The season tickets will be $60 for students and $90 for guests, with $5 of that automatically going to the REDZONE when the season ticket holder checks a box on the form. Thundersticks, more than likely, will be given away for every home game, or at least for the REDZONE.

More details will be available later, and everything is tentative until the Athletic Department's final release. The REDZONE is always looking for sponsors, to increase the giveaways for students and improve the section at the games. If you are interested in sponsoring the REDZONE drop me a line.
