    wrestling attendance

    Any thoughts on how we, as Cyclone Nation, could boost home wrestling attendance? We do have the best wrestling in the country in our backyard with plenty of knowledgable fans.

    Beating Iowa and winning a National title would do wonders.

    That meet will be worth the season tickets for next year.

    This is the obvious answer. Outside of that, I think more promotions and advertising would do wonders. The atmosphere at these meets is amazing, and we just need to get more first-time fans and fans that have strayed back into Hilton.

    I'm a firm believer that if you give more people a taste of the action, you'll get more people hooked. A few years ago I went to my first meet since I was a student. Now I go to at least 2 or 3 meets every season, and I'm considering season tickets next year.

    Problem is, I'm not sure the budget will allow for more promotions and advertising.

    Re: wrestling attendance

    I agree. I think promotions with a price break on kids would encourage more attendance.

    Plan on being there with my two kids. It is a little inconvenient driving from omaha, but the way the team has been coming along the past few years and the atmosphere at Hilton, it is well worth it.

    Here's my endorsement of wrestling so that the athletic department doesnt have to spend money on promotions...

    Have a promotion where the HW takes on a live bear.

    It's actually $30, but if u get the all sports pass, they give u the CyPass for free, and then its the same price as buying just fball and mens bball.

    Season Wrestling tickets are on $65 dollars, that is $8.13 per match. Cheap entertainment that is VERY exciting.

    Re: wrestling attendance

    I think the fans can do wonders if even 1/2 the people that plan on attending a meet convince just one more person to buy a ticket.

    What is Student attendance like at the meets?

    Maybe Cyclone Alley could do some promotions that would allow members that attend Olympic Sports events extra perks.

    Possibly set-up a point system that spans the Cyclone Alley Career (only 4 years allowed). Get some sponsors to fork over a nice prize package.

    Top prize could be season tickets after graduation for a year.

    Or could just go with some yearly prizes.

    Maybe they already do this though.
