Friday at 5 p.m. is the last opportunity for CSU students to pick up free UNC tickets and purchase CU game seats
Sept. 7, 2011
FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Rams football program is reminding CSU students that Friday at 5 p.m. not only marks their final opportunity to pick up free tickets to Saturday's Orange Out opener, but also their final opportunity to purchase discounted seats in the CSU student section to the CU game.
Football home opener Saturday
More than 7,000 student tickets remain available for pickup to Saturday's Orange Out Ag Day home opener against Northern Colorado (12 p.m., The Mtn. HDTV). The deadline to pick up tickets is Friday at 5 p.m.
CSU students with a valid university student ID receive one free ticket to all CSU home athletics events. CSU students must show their student ID when picking up tickets.
CSU students may pick up their ticket at the athletics ticket office (located on the first floor of the McGraw Athletics Center) beginning the Monday before each home football game. Student tickets also are available on campus at the Lory Student Center. Students are encouraged to pick up their tickets early, as they are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tickets will not be available on game day at Hughes Stadium, so students should pick up tickets during the week on campus. The student section is the east grandstand, along the Rams' home sideline, and seating is general admission.
Students wishing to bring a guest who is not a CSU student may purchase a $25 general-admission, student-section ticket.
Cinch Jeans Rocky Mountain Showdown against CU
More than 4,000 CSU student tickets to the annual Cinch Jeans Rocky Mountain Showdown against CU, Sept. 17 at Sports Authority Field in Denver, remain available for purchase.
Students are only able to take advantage of the discount and reserve a seat with fellow students in the designated CSU section until Friday at 5 p.m. After that deadline, students wanting to go to the game would need to pay $60, including a processing fee, for admission. Until Friday at 5 p.m., students purchasing online pay only $25 for a CU game ticket.
How to purchase student tickets to CU game
Student tickets to the showdown are available only at CSURams.com, at the link at the top of this page: http://www.csurams.com/tickets/student-tickets.html.
Students are required to set up a student user account before purchasing CU game tickets, following a few quick steps on the page. Students that purchased tickets last year don't need to create a new account, and should just enter their current, valid student-identification number. Only full-time, full-fee-paying students are allowed to purchase tickets.
In setting up a user account, students are strongly cautioned to identify themselves as a student, and not a member of the general public. If students register as general public, like many students last year, they will significantly delay the processing of their orders and won't be able to guarantee their seats at the game. There are approximately 10,000 seats in CSU student sections at Invesco Field.
Student should be very careful not to buy public tickets by mistake.
Students that wish to purchase a guest ticket for a non-CSU student to the CU game can do so for $60 (price includes a $5 fee). Those guest tickets will be assigned to the purchasing student's zone so the guest can sit next to the student in general-admission seating.
Prices and fees
Student tickets to the CU game are $25. Guest tickets in the CSU section are $60. Both prices include a $5 service fee.
Ram Road Trip
Ram Road Trip is round-trip transportation to the CU game provided by ASCSU with the assistance of Super Shuttle. The buses will be leaving promptly at 8 a.m. and arrive at Invesco Field around 9:30 a.m., plenty of time to enjoy the pregame festivities before kickoff at 11:30 a.m. CSU student bus tickets are $15 each and must be purchased with a CU game ticket. CSU student bus tickets are available as an add-on when purchasing Cinch Jeans Rocky Mountain Showdown tickets online. After purchasing game tickets, students should click "continue shopping" to add the bus ticket. The bus ticket includes snacks. Space is limited.
All student and student-guest tickets to the CU game will be print at home. Students should save their confirmation numbers at the time of purchase. Once student tickets are purchased, officials will e-mail - using the address provided by the student when purchasing seats - the game tickets.
All CSU student customers will receive general-admission tickets assigned to one of three zones in the Rams' student sections at Invesco Field. Those that purchase first will be placed in a lower-field-level zone. Once that zone sells out, student customers will be placed in an upper-field-level zone. The last to purchase will be placed in an upper-bowl zone.
