Perspective on ...
It’s been quite a whirlwind since my introduction in late March as Kent State’s 11th Director of Athletics. While we’ve tackled many different areas in a short period of time, no project is of greater importance than our 90Ksu: Everyone Counts initiative.
From day one, I’ve indicated that football is going to be a priority. With the NCAA attendance requirement already in place, we decided to take both notions and turn them into one campaign.
This isn’t just about selling tickets though. This is about improving the fan experience; about making Dix Stadium a destination six times each fall. We want students, alumni, our faculty and staff and the community as a whole to be actively involved in and take pride in Golden Flashes football.
Intercollegiate Athletics is going to do everything we can to make that vision a reality, and that starts with engaging Kent State employees, first and foremost.
We’ve been speaking every day this summer to each Destination Kent State session to target our newest Golden Flashes fans. Now we’re enlisting your help.
As Kent State faculty and staff, you are entitled to a chairback season ticket for just $40. For less than $7 a game, you get a great seat for each one of our six home games. That’s a 33 percent savings on the per-game cost for the best seats in the stadium.
A talented, deep and determined Golden Flashes team kicks off the season in Dix Stadium Thursday, Sept. 2, at 7 p.m. against Murray State. The Oct. 9 Homecoming clash against local rival The University of Akron will begin at 3:30 p.m., while the remaining four home games will all start at 2 p.m. (10/30 vs. Ball State; 11/6 vs. Temple; 11/13 vs. Army and 11/26 vs. Ohio University).
