War Memorial Stadium Update

$3.5 million donation from McMurry foundation announced, for the west stadium renovations and aquatics. Thanks to the McMurrys legacy.
 
I have heard some of my friends who were longtime season ticket holders on the west side that they were not pleased with displacement of their seats and were considering not renewing their season tickets. The abundance of night games is another concern which may have a negative overall effect on ticket sales.

This will be the same story as the AA reseat was. People (and businesses) are buying up the desireable chair back seats, then as the years go on they will drop off and open up spots for those interested. I just moved to the upper deck for the next few seasons while it all sorts itself out.

I am on the east side already but having so many night games is getting tiring. While I live in Cheyenne so the drive is not a huge issue, I cannot help but wonder what it does to fans who do not live as close .If I lived somewhere where it was more than a couple of hours away, I probably would not buy season tickets. I would choose a game or 2 to attend and buy tickets.

I have a friend, long time season ticket holder, former football player at Wyoming that had tix on the west side about 50 yard line. Will lose them, and was told CJC priority points will decide where his new tix are. Also at a higher price. He told them they could F themselves.

I’m not sure I agree with this direction or attitude from the athletics department, when upgrades are done to piss off ticket holders in the way they re-allocate seating.

People, especially old people, like to bitch about change.
 
Tough to comment, until we are actually sitting / standing in the stadium, on game day. If there are a bunch of empty seats in a mostly full stadium we will know. And / or if WYO fans continue to whore out their tickets to get paid we will know. Until then...
