i just sent My ticket rep and someone else I know in the athletic dept the following email
There’s a letter circulating on various Ute fan sites about changes to the football ticket seating priority
I’ve seen a copy of the letter. Didn’t like the implications. It seems that the university is looking at moving people’s seats from year to year based on contribution levels ? So no credit/loyalty is given to people for being season ticket holders for 30 or more years ? Somebody can donate more and just force us out of seats we’ve had for years ? Between this letter, the fubar with the basketball tickets and the continued raising of ticket prices I’m to the point where I’m seriously considering dropping my season tickets for football as well. There’s plenty of tickets on stubhub and KSL. I don’t have to be a season ticket holder I choose to be. But if the university is going to continue to treat lifelong season ticket holders poorly. make drastic policy changes in search of the almighty buck i will reconsider my support of the athletic dept with my time and money.
Having Idaho state and NIU on the home schedule didn’t help matters
You folks may want to look at the various ute fan sites instead of relying on the surveys you send out. Those surveys are not effective. They are clearly designed to give the university the data they want to support preconceived conclusions and not the actual thoughts of your customers.
If I get a letter saying my seats will be moved based on my giving level I won’t be renewing. I expect the 98% renewal rate will plummet. If you doubt that look forty miles south. They implemented a similar policy.
I don’t know why the university and athletic dept go out of their way to make it so hard to be a fan. Rapidly approaching a point where the ROI just isn’t worth it
If I get a response from either of them I will post it if anybody wants to see it. But I bet I don’t get one
