    Cyclone Alley Rewards

    I know most people on here won't be affected from it, but Cyclone Alley has a reward program for this year!



    Here is the basic gist:

    • 1 pt for Men's Games
    • 2 pts for Women's Games
    • Break and Exhibition games DO NOT count.
    • 22pts max from girls and 12pts max from guys. 34 Total
    • Once you reach a Tier and redeem you DO NOT lose your points.
    • Once you redeem Tiers 4,5, and 6 you get put into the associated drawings as well
    • $99 seats count for this year only (next year on they won't)
    • Must be a member of Cyclone Alley and have Student Season tickets


    Tiers and Rewards/Drawings:



    I don't know about you guys but this gets me pumped up! It will get more people actually going to the games and those of us that go to them all will have some awesome rewards!

    Thoughts?

    I like the idea. Hopefully it does help student attendance a bit.

    This would be one benefit of changing to scanning id cards for tickets.

    found this part interesting, especially considering the student tix sold completely out. (and it was just a few years ago a lot of those $99 seats wouldve been student tickets anyways)

    Maybe next year they'll be turning some of them back into student seats.

    I thought they might at first, but thatd also involve reseating people (to put all the students in one section instead of dispersed throughout the $99 sections)

    Reserving a certain number of $99 tickets to be sold only to students until a certain date would solve that problem.

    But that doesnt work anymore now that theyve been sold out, unless you're not going to allow $99 seat ticketholders first option of renewal.

    Why should $99 ticketholders get seats ahead of students? This is college basketball, not the NBA, and if the $99 ticketholders want seats and there aren't any at the $99 level, perhaps they should increase their donations/buy more expensive tickets, especially if I'm reading the ticket chart right and students are paying $125 for those same seats.

    Renewals always get first shot at their tickets. And those student tickets that are $125, giving access to the lower level are much better seats than the $99 seats are in the balcony.

    Yeah... at the same time though, even on a per game basis, the student tickets are much more valuable. Look how much it costs to get a seat in the parquet\arena circle for non-students (much, much more including ticket+ CC donation of a minimum of $2500)

    And those break games they miss are typically the least valuable of the season.

    Re: Cyclone Alley Rewards

    I'm pretty sure that the sellout of the $99 seats is directly related to student ticket purchases. I'll know more Sunday, but I fully expect to be surrounded by students at these games.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
