HOUSTON - Houston Athletics will begin the process of seating the new football stadium in the spring of 2014. Seat allocation will be based on stadium donations (five-year pledges), 2013 Cougar Pride donations, the Cougar Pride Priority Point System and the purchase of 2013 football season tickets. Our Cougar Pride Priority Points Program allows us to reward and be more equitable to donors/season ticket holders for their past contributions in addition to their current support.
SEAT SELECTION ORDER
The Cougar Pride fiscal year closes on Nov. 30, 2013, and will not include unpaid pledges. For example, if you only paid $2,000 of your $10,000 stadium pledge, you will only receive points for the $2,000 paid by November 30.
Beginning spring of 2014, those who fall in the first three levels will begin seat selections.
To keep stakeholders as updated as possible, Cougar Pride will start releasing a monthly update of the Cougar Pride Priority Point System. In July 2013, stakeholders will receive an email and a mailing with their account number, current point total and current Cougar Pride membership level. Starting in August, as a convenience for each stakeholder, updates will be done online through a combination of your online account and the Cougar Pride webpage so stakeholders can see where they rank in the system at that time. Cougar Pride will release an updated list in mid-November to give stakeholders a final opportunity to view their updated rankings before the end of the giving year on Nov. 30, 2013.
You can still purchase 2014 season tickets if you are not a 2013 season ticket holder; however, you will be placed in level 6 (2013 Cougar Pride donors) or level 7.
A comprehensive stadium map with pricing structure will be released in July 2013.
