20 New Fan Enhancements Announced For 2018 Football Season


UNLV Athletics builds off successful FANtastic 7 program; The FANtastic 20 adds improvements for fans

UNLV Athletics has announced The FANtastic 20, an expanded fan enhancement list for the 2018 UNLV football season.
In the fall of 2017, UNLV Athletics surveyed its fans and conducted a comprehensive listening tour asking constituent groups for their opinions and suggestions regarding the gameday experience at UNLV sporting events. The Athletics Department listened carefully and developed the FANtastic 7 in August, seven initiatives to enhance the gameday experience, to create more fan engagement and to improve the overall atmosphere.
“We received great feedback after introducing the FANtastic 7,” said UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois. “As we continued surveying our fans and analyzing the data, we are continuing in our quest to improve and be as responsive to Rebel fans as possible. We are confident that they will enjoy and benefit from the new things that we are implementing as we strive to create memorable experiences for our fans and for our student-athletes.”
The department has added 20 new initiatives for Rebel fans that will be rolled out over the course of the 2018 football season.
