ETSU Kickoff Fund aims to raise football dollars

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Supporters asked to match students with $250 gift to program

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (April 2, 2013) – Along with several major announcements on Tuesday regarding the start of a new football program, the ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics also unveiled plans for a new Kickoff Fund which will immediately begin raising dollars for the upstart program.

With a $250 donation – which is equal to the yearly athletics fee which ETSU students will begin paying for the football program beginning this fall – alumni, fans and former football players will earn “priority points” towards the purchase of future season tickets while also securing limited invitations to special “football-related” announcements in the future.

“We think this is a perfect way for those football supporters who have been dreaming of this day to immediately do something for the program,” said ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Richard Sander. “With a gift of $250 they are saying that they are willing – just as our students are – to do their part financially to help us launch this new program.”

Examples of events that Kickoff Fund contributors will be invited to include the unveiling of the program’s helmets and uniforms, as well as the announcement of the team’s first head coach. 

The ETSU ticket office will also begin taking pre-orders for season tickets immediately, which will require a $50 “down payment” per ticket. While this down payment guarantees a seat somewhere in the new stadium, seating priority will be based on the priority points system which is determined by annual giving to the Buccaneer Athletic Scholarship Association.
