VCU Athletics has launched a new season ticket referral program for the 2011-12 men's basketball season. The program, called the "Connect Four" Challenge, rewards existing season ticket holders if they refer a customer who buys men's basketball season tickets. The VCU Rams made history in the month of March as they advanced from the "First Four to the Final Four" of the 2011 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
Over the next 44 days, the VCU Athletic Department challenges its fans to refer friends and family to join the Ram Nation next season. Beginning today, July 11 through August 23, it is our goal to sign up 44 new accounts in 44 days.
To begin, any season ticket holder who refers a friend to purchase season tickets of their own will receive a special gift. For VCU season ticket holders that gift is an exclusive Nike "The Road to Houston" t-shirt. For the new season ticket holder gift, is a copy of the 2011 NCAA commemorative edition of the NCAA Ram Report.
In addition, the fan who refers the most new season ticket holders will win the opportunity to sit courtside with Robby Robinson and Mike Ellis as they make the radio call during a home game this season.
The Connect Four Challenge begins immediately and ends August 23. If you have any questions regarding this program please call the VCU Ticket Office at (804) 828-7267.
Help us fill the Siegel Center by referring your friends, family members, neighbors, and co-workers and win great VCU prizes. Follow our progress on Facebook and Twitter!
