UNLV SETS TICKET PRICING FOR 2020 AT ALLEGIANT STADIUM
UNLV Athletics partnered with world-renowned pricing expert from UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hospitality to set football season ticket prices in new $1.9 billion state-of-the-art stadium
UNLV Athletics has announced pricing of new 2020 season tickets for Rebel football games at Allegiant Stadium.
Pricing for 2020 in the new $1.9 billion state-of-the-art stadium was based on surveys of the local market tracking gameday experience, ticket costs, concessions, parking and tailgating. The survey was sent to football event purchasers as well as UNLV alumni with an athletics affinity, located in the Las Vegas area. The results provided UNLV Athletics’ leadership with a better understanding of what the community values.
“This second wave of surveys allowed us to continue gathering information as we identify our place in the most competitive entertainment market in the world and strive towards one of our top priorities which is providing the best fan experience in the Mountain West Conference,” UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois said. “As has been our goal throughout this process, we want to be thoughtful and strategic in our transition into the new stadium. Our pricing model provides the Las Vegas community with affordable access to our new $1.9 billion home for Rebel football.”
To design the surveys, UNLV Athletics partnered and collaborated with Stowe Shoemaker, Dean of UNLV’s world-renowned William F. Harrah College of Hospitality. Dean Shoemaker has worked on pricing models for numerous Fortune 500 companies and is considered an expert in the space.
“Understanding the customer experience is absolutely essential to developing a pricing strategy that works,” said Shoemaker, “That’s what our college does best. Through rigorous research, we can help identify a model that provides fans with a great experience at a fair price.”
“Having someone as respected as Dean Shoemaker right here on campus is one of the advantages of being located in a city like Las Vegas and at a university like UNLV,” Reed-Francois added. “Stowe is a staple in this community and volunteered his services because he understands what this transition means not just for our athletics department, but for the entire university. This is a great next step in providing a transformational experience in Allegiant Stadium for our community.”
Fans looking to purchase season tickets in 2020 can save up to $250 per season ticket by taking advantage of the “Faithful Fan Pricing” and purchasing 2019 football season tickets. For more information on purchasing tickets and the savings, please call 702.739.FANS or visit UNLVtickets.com.

“It takes all of us pulling in the right direction and we are excited to show our appreciation for those supporters who will come out game after game to help give us a home-court advantage at the Thomas & Mack Center,” UNLV Men’s Basketball Head Coach T.J. Otzelberger said.

UNLV ATHLETICS ANNOUNCES RETURN OF RUNNIN’ REBEL TICKETS FOR TEACHERS PROGRAM
Donation Link | UNLVTickets | Schedule | @UNLVAthletics | @TheRunninRebels
UNLV Athletics has announced the return of its “Tickets for Teachers” program for the upcoming 2019-20 Runnin’ Rebel basketball season as a way to say “thank you” to local teachers.
Working with the Clark County School District School-Community Partnership Office, the Tickets for Teachers program aims to provide two UNLV men’s basketball season tickets to every elementary and middle school in the district, which principals can distribute to deserving teachers.
CCSD is the fifth largest school district in the country and has a total of 285 elementary and middle schools.
The NBA and Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation have already committed to providing 100 tickets.
“The NBA Summer League and Tomorrow’s Stars Foundation are proud to support Tickets for Teachers and UNLV men’s basketball,” said Albert Hall, Las Vegas NBA Summer League Co-founder. “We’ve all been positively influenced by teachers in our lives and appreciate the influential impact they have on our communities. This program is another example of Tomorrow’s Stars improving the Las Vegas area.”
“Tickets for Teachers is one way for us to recognize and thank local teachers, who put in so much time, energy, and effort to make our community great,” said UNLV men’s basketball head coach T.J. Otzelberger. “We appreciate the National Basketball Association jumping on board early to help our local educators.”
Additional tickets will be provided through “angel” donations from community members. A school (two tickets) can be sponsored for $240 for the men’s basketball season. Supporters can make their contribution by making a tax-deductible donation to the Rebel Athletic Fund in support of “Tickets for Teachers” following this link. Preferred schools can be recommended by donors, however, the program’s goal is to have all schools sponsored. After the purchase, the ticketing office then facilitates the donation of the tickets to the CCSD’s School-Community Partnership to be distributed to the schools.
“It is always encouraging to see Clark County School District community partners recognize and support the teachers who work so hard every day to ensure our students receive a rich and rigorous education,” said CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. “The efforts by UNLV and the NBA not only gives principals a way to thank and reward those teachers, but it also gives the teachers the opportunity to have a little fun and support the Runnin’ Rebels as well.”
Those interested in more information on the program or supporting schools can contact Barry Kamen in the UNLV Athletics Ticketing Department at 702-895-3679 or by email at email@example.com.
