The header’s a pretty good tip this isn’t about Georgia football. It seems UNLV is making a fan-friendly gesture (h/t calderw) in hopes it’ll lure some bodies through the door.
Some tickets for UNLV football this fall will include unlimited concession items in an initiative university officials believe is unique in college athletics. They also say it’s a tremendous value.
The three-game “Eat All You Can Plan,” which will provide boundless hot dogs, popcorn, nachos and soda, costs $79. While all-you-can-eat promotions are common at Major League Baseball stadiums, it is not prominent on a college football Saturday.
The games are Sept. 8 against UTEP; Nov. 3 against Fresno State; Nov. 24 in the Fremont Cannon rivalry game against UNR.
“It’s a great way for your family to enjoy first-class entertainment and create a memory for an affordable price,” said Desiree Reed-Francois, UNLV’s athletic director.
What a novel idea. It inspired three rapid thoughts on my part, one right after the other:
- How cool would it be to do something similar at some of the cupcake games at Sanford Stadium?
- Then again, can you imagine the nightmare at Sanford concession stands that would entail from offering that to thousands of Georgia fans?
- Then again, charging for the concessions – never actually serving the concessions because of massive delivery bottlenecks = moar profit!
I think I may be on to something here, Greg.
