[quote=“Mr. Bojangles, post:578, topic:30091”]This is happening in Ruston, Louisiana.
Louisiana Tech Athletics took a page out of the famous line from the 1989 American baseball classic Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come.”[/quote]
With the final touches to the new press box and luxury suites at Joe Aillet Stadium being completed over the next few days, Louisiana Tech Athletics Director Tommy McClelland announced today that all 13 of the premium seating suites within the facility have been sold. McClelland also announced that all 302 premium seats in the Davison Athletics Complex have been sold out for the third straight season.
The revenue from the luxury suites and the club level provides Louisiana Tech Athletics an additional revenue stream of $1.25 million per year.
“Not only do the new luxury suites provide some of our corporate partners and donors a premium seating option, but it’s a significant financial benefit to our athletics department,” said McClelland. “We are very fortunate at Louisiana Tech to have some great relationships with both businesses and individuals that want to be a part of our vision. We can’t thank all of our season ticket holders enough for their support of our University and our football program. I would also like to thank the Louisiana Tech University Foundation and its Board for their cooperation and partnership on this project. It could not have been done without them.”
LA Tech went 8-5 and then won their bowl game last year. That sells tickets.
