Dear Ram Nation,

Thank you for your support of VCU Athletics. Your dedication to our student-athletes means so much to them and our department during these unprecedented times.

As the 2020-21 men’s and women’s basketball season approaches, VCU Athletics will move forward with the Commonwealth of Virginia’s requirement of a 1,000-person capacity limit at the Stuart C. Siegel Center for the 2020-21 season. If guidance from the Commonwealth changes throughout the season, VCU Athletics will adjust accordingly.

We will limit seating in the arena to the bowl in a socially-distanced manner, while we will close our floor seats and the Tommy J. West Club. Ticket holders in these closed areas will have the opportunity to sit in the bowl.

VCU Athletics will determine access to season tickets based on giving level (beginning with Scholarship Society) and rank within each giving level. Ticket allocations for student-athlete guests, coaches guests and students will leave approximately 650 season tickets available to Ram Athletic Fund members. VCU Athletics has created protocols to ensure any unused tickets from these groups become available to Ram Athletic Fund members on a single-game basis.

As a current season ticket holder, you will receive notification by Tuesday, November 17, if you qualify for the limited capacity model for the 2020-21 season. If you do not meet the limited capacity qualifications, you will receive information on your options for the payments on tickets you already made (donate, refund, transfer to RAF gift for 21-22).

We appreciate your patience during this process and look forward to another successful season of VCU Basketball.

Go Rams!

they better do us proud and get loud

This will be a good opportunity for longtime donor old heads that get upset when we criticize them on here to put their mouth where their money is. :lol:

Not saying, there won't be some big time / long time donors that will be loud for the rest of us watching at home.... but I suspect it'll be more like the days when I first started attending WBB games at VCU.... where those fans who are super loud.... the players & coaches on both benches, as well as the referees will hear every word that fans yell.

Who knows what we may end up hearing on TV out of nowhere lol.

Also.... gonna need someone in the Rowdy Rams to stomp on the Metal Steps for me during Free Throws!

Does this mean that the top donors in each donor level will get an allocation of seats? If so, that could mean someone donating $25K/year might not get seats, but someone donating $5K/year might?

"VCU Athletics will determine access to season tickets based on giving level (beginning with Scholarship Society) and rank within each giving level. "

No, each donor level will not get an allocation of seats. Its starts at the top and works it way down through the different levels.

This was in the email they sent this morning...VCU Athletics will determine access to season tickets based on giving level (beginning with Scholarship Society) and rank within each giving level.

It sounds like they will select from each level of giving to me (on a game by game basis).

Bill who donated $2,500.00 every year for 20 years is SOL. Tom who's donated $25,000.00 for two years is likely in good shape. I understand where the money trumps loyalty. Monday morning Quarter Backing but isn't long term loyalty via the donor points a better option over the long term? Any word on what they are doing with the Capital Campaign folks?
