Loco Rising: Reunion Games Announced

Loco Rising: Reunion Games Announced

UCSB Athletics is introducing a new program to bring back alumni who created the famous Locos name to uphold traditions and heritage. “Loco Rising” games are designed to connect alums with students who are part of the new Loco Rewards student spirit program.

For just $30, UCSB Alumni can grab a unique ticket package that combines the storied traditions of both soccer and basketball. Included in the Loco Rising package is admittance to the two games listed below, as well as a third bonus game of your choice. As if that’s not enough, all Alumni who participate will also receive the just released 2013 Official Soccer Gameday T-shirt.

o Men's Soccer v. Cal Poly on Nov 9, 8:00 p.m.
o Men's Basketball v. Utah State, Nov. 16, 7:00 p.m.
o Any Men’s Basketball game of your choice*
(Exact times may change with TV)
*excluding 12/6 vs. Cal

Note:  The Nov. 9 Cal Poly match will also be part of the men's soccer's annual Alumni Reunion where players from all era's return to Harder Stadium.

UCSB students established a strong tradition in the late 80s and early 90’s with a thunderous atmosphere for our basketball games televised on ESPN.  Highlighted by multiple victories over national powerhouse UNLV, UCSB students introduced themselves to the nation.  They quickly established a reputation as one of the most intimidating crowds in college basketball.  Fast forward 20 years and that same Gaucho swagger manifests itself at Harder Stadium in the loudest stadium in college soccer.  The Gauchos own the top five most attended games on-campus in NCAA history, including a record 15,896 who witnessed UCSB's 2-0 shutout of UCLA on September 21, 2010.  Whether the golden age of Gaucho basketball or the modern soccer era, Gaucho students started it all. 

The student section ticket (or general admission if preferred) will allow alums to once again experience the magic of gameday. Only 250 alumni ticket packages with t-shirts will be available for Loco Rising games, so advance orders are encouraged. To order, please call the ticket office at (805) 893-UCSB.

Today, the UCSB athletics department's policy is to provide free tickets to students for regular season games and encourages student spirit and sportsmanship through Loco Rewards. The newly launched program offers the Official Gameday T-shirt and rewards students in the program with giveaways and additional prizes simply for attending any athletic events throughout the year.
