FORT COLLINS, Colo.--Last season the Rams ranked 13th in the country with an average attendance of 2,180 fans per match. To help the record-setting fans cheer on the No. 15 CSU volleyball team this season, the athletic department has announced an exciting promotional schedule.
The first of these promotions takes place at the season home opener, Friday night vs. No. 5 Nebraska. This highly anticipated match has been dubbed a "White Out," where fans are encouraged to dress in white. Admission for CSU students is free with a valid student ID.
Students are encouraged to arrive early to participate in the "Welcome Students Tailgate Party," presented by Wells Fargo. The first 500 students to arrive will receive free food. Prize giveaways and music will add to the festivities. The first 500 students to enter Moby Arena will also receive a free white T-shirt, courtesy of Russell Athletic. A special student entrance for the match will be located on the northeast side of Moby.
The next promotion, "Orange Out" night, takes place Sept. 10 when the Rams face in-state rival Northern Colorado. The match follows CSU football's Orange Out vs. Northern Colorado. Fans who bring their CSU-UNC football stub can receive a general-admission ticket for only $3.
CSU volleyball's Annual Dig Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness Night is scheduled for Oct. 6, when the Rams take on Seattle. Fans are encouraged to show their support by donning pink.
To celebrate CSU Athletics' new relationship with Coca-Cola, five Coke Combo Nights will take place throughout the season. At these matches, fans can receive two tickets, two Coca-Cola products and two hot dogs for $10. Coke Combo Nights are scheduled for Sept. 3 (vs. Albany), Sept. 8 (vs. Nova KBM), Sept. 24 (vs. Boise State), Oct. 13 (vs. New Mexico) and Oct. 29 (vs. UNLV).
