Each Ram Athletic Fund member and season ticket holder is affected in some way by the Seat Equity Plan. As we move forward, we want to provide as much information as possible so you can make informed and educated decisions during the reseating. Each person’s situation will be different, but we listed some examples that you may encounter during the process.
Mr. Weber is a Capital Campaign member who has two seats in Section 5, Row A, Seats 1-2. He currently makes an annual gift of $1,000 to maintain his seats. In accordance with the Seat Equity Plan, Mr. Weber will need to continue donating $1,000 to maintain those two seats.
Mr. Graham is a Capital Campaign member who wants eight seats total. His Capital Campaign seats are in Section 6, Row B, Seats 1-4. He currently makes an annual gift of $1,000 to maintain his seats. Moving forward with the Seat Equity Plan, Mr. Graham will retain his four Capital Campaign seats if he continues to donate $1,000 annually. If he wants to obtain eight seats, he will need to become a Battering Ram ($10,000 annually), based on the priority seat limits. This request will be limited to seat availability and will require a $10,000 donation regardless of the other seat locations.
Mr. Rodriguez joined the Ram Athletic Fund three years ago and has contributed $5,000 annually, thus he has the ability to purchase six seats. He currently sits in Section 8, Row P, Seats 1&2 and has not had the opportunity to upgrade his seats. In accordance with priority seating limits, Mr. Rodriguez would be given a seat selection time based on his Ram Ranking. When it comes time to select his seats, Mr. Rodriguez is eligible to select from any section at or below the $5,000 priority seats and choose up to six seats. However, he is not guaranteed seats in a $5,000 priority section.
Mrs. Long is a Capital Campaign member and a Battering Ram ($10,000 annually). She has six seats in Section 5, Row F, Seats 1-6 and four first row courtside seats. Moving forward with the Seat Equity Plan, Mrs. Long will need to contribute $15,000 to maintain her four floor seats and an additional $5,000 to maintain her six seats in Section 5. She could maintain four of the six seats located in Section 5 by making a $1,000 donation.
Mr. Duncan, Mr. Warren and Mr. Henderson have sat with one another for several years. They would like to continue sitting together. Moving forward with the Seat Equity Plan, each member of the group must coordinate his selection with the appointment time of the lowest-ranking person within the group.
