FORT COLLINS, Colo.--Colorado State University Athletics has sold out the entire inventory of premium seats in the new on-campus stadium--a project that is on-time and on-budget and even exceeding projections. The four areas--suites, loge boxes, indoor club and outdoor club--sold out ahead of schedule, demonstrating the excitement among Rams fans for the opening of the 41,000-capacity facility that will bring football back to campus on Sept. 9, 2017, when the first game kicks off at a new Sonny Lubick Field.
"We developed a pacing model in August of 2015 that forecasted a sellout of premium seating by December of 2016," said Joe Parker, Director of Athletics at Colorado State. "We are thrilled and grateful for the response from Colorado State alumni and fans who have committed to premium seating and helped us achieve 100 percent occupancy of these areas ahead of our planned timeline. The Ram Club team did a phenomenal job encouraging people to participate and provide donations for these unique spectator experiences. We are extremely thankful for this amazing level of support for CSU Athletics and the on-campus stadium."
The complete sell-out of premium spaces includes 23 suites, 43 loge boxes, 149 indoor club seats and 819 outdoor club seats.
"Given the pride and excitement these areas have generated, we cannot wait for September 9, 2017," said David Crum, Senior Associate A.D. for Development. "Thank you to all of our alumni and friends for the outpouring of unbelievable support."
An anonymous donation of $20 million last March was made to CSU to name the playing surface in the new stadium Sonny Lubick Field, continuing to honor the former Rams head coach in the same way he is presently recognized at Hughes Stadium.
The facility will feature several other unique spaces and amenities to enhance the gameday experience for patrons, while also providing attractive event spaces on a year-round basis. These spaces also have generated significant demand for partnership opportunities with CSU.
In August the University and New Belgium Brewing Company announced that the local brewer was making a $4.3 million gift to create the New Belgium Porch in the north end zone plaza. The Porch will provide a standing-room area on gamedays that will allow fans a unique vantage point to experience game days and view the action on the field. Later in August the Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies Field Club was introduced to the public, which offers spectacular proximity to the field behind the Rams' bench for pre- and postgame enjoyment, as well as in-game entertaining. Reservations will soon be made available for both the New Belgium Porch and the Orthopaedic & Spine Center of the Rockies Field Club.
In addition to the tremendous gameday enjoyment these spaces will offer, they also will be available to companies, organizations and community groups that wish to schedule events of all sizes and scope throughout the year. For more information about hosting an event at the on-campus stadium, or to reserve a space, please contact Elodie Vigneron by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (970)-491-8603.
Season ticketholders will have first priority and the opportunity to select their seats in the spring of 2017 based on Ram Point totals as of Dec. 31, 2016. The Rams Sales Team will begin taking new season ticket requests soon. Seat locations for new requests will be allocated by request date after the season ticketholder reseating process concludes.

Supporters of Colorado State University and the on-campus stadium also can reserve a permanent piece of the new stadium through the purchase of commemorative bricks, which will be arranged outside the north plaza gates along Pitkin Street. To date nearly 2,600 bricks have been sold toward a goal of 3,500. Bricks can be purchased through Dec. 31, 2016 by visiting http://stadium.colostate.edu/bricks/ or calling 844-RAM-BRIX (844-726-2749) Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. MT.
