SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - With the defending Big West Champion men's basketball team coming off of a historic season and the perennial power women's basketball team going on an exciting run in the Big West Tournament, UCSB Athletics is excited to announce 2010-11 season tickets are now available.
With two of the most dynamic players in the Big West returning, Gaucho fans can now "Double Up" on the excitement of UCSB Basketball.
Led by All-American and Big West Player of the Year Orlando Johnson, the Gaucho men host Fresno State and an ESPNU Bracket Busters game this season, as well as a conference slate that will have every team challenging UCSB for Big West supremacy. Paced by All-Big West selection Mekia Valentine, a dominant force in the paint, the Gaucho women host a challenging home schedule that includes NCAA Tournament team Portland State and Conference USA member UTEP, as well as the demanding Big West Conference opposition.
With value pricing remaining at last year's level and the new "Double Up" offer, Gaucho fans won't want to miss a minute of basketball this season. For the low price of just $200 (six bucks per game!) fans will receive both a men's and women's season ticket - that's nearly a 50% savings off the single game price!
Season tickets are $125 for the men and $100 for the women. UCSB faculty and staff will receive 50% off every season ticket purchased. Gaucho Fund donors - the donors who make The Difference - at $300 and above can sit in cushioned chairback seating behind the team benches known as the Gold Zone. Plus, UCSB faculty and staff will receive 50% off every season ticket purchased.
Gaucho Fund members also have access to the revamped Founders Room which includes pregame and halftime hospitality and free parking! With soft drinks, beer, wine, food and networking available each game, fans won't want to miss out.
The One Donation Is Gold system allows Gaucho Fund donors access to premium seating at all venues with their donation to support UCSB student-athletes.
