Vanderbilt Reveals Innovative Women’s Basketball Season Ticket Incentive Plan 10/30/02

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Vanderbilt Department of Athletics has created an incentive program that rewards women’s basketball season ticket holders for promoting the Commodores.

The Your Team Season Ticket Incentive Program was developed to encourage current season ticket holders to help increase the season ticket sales for women’s basketball. For each new fan recruited, incentives are offered and awarded to the current season ticket holder. Season tickets must be purchased by Dec. 7 (Saturday).

"Commodore Women's Basketball fans are very loyal and dedicated,” Director of Marketing Owen Shull said. “We wanted to develop a plan that would reward the fans for their support. We’ve developed the tag 'Your Team' as a way to demonstrate this fan support, and it is our hope that the Your Team Ticket Selling Plan will not only encourage our fans to get others involved, but also reward those that want to help."

The awards include:
• Game Day Program Recognition
• Money Back on Season Tickets
• Autographed Basketball
• Parking Pass for women’s basketball games
• National Commodore Club Membership
• On Court Recognition
• Senior Banquet Tickets (2)
• Lunch with Head Coach Melanie Balcomb
• A pre-selected SEC road trip with the team
• Trip for Two to the SEC Tournament
“I have been very impressed with the fan support ever since I arrived at Vandebilt,” Balcomb said. “I’m glad that we have put a plan together to reward our loyal fans.”
