Single-game football tickets on sale July 12

July 8, 2010

On July 12, CSU fans will have their first opportunity to purchase single-game tickets to any Rams home game, including the 2010 Rocky Mountain Showdown in Denver. Student tickets for Rocky Mountain Showdown, all priced at $25, will go on sale July 19.

'Orange Out' on Ag Day Sept. 25

Pumpkin and alfalfa.

When the Aggies won their first eight conference championships under legendary coach Harry Hughes, those were two of the school colors.

Pumpkin and alfalfa will be the school colors again Sept. 25 when the Rams begin their Fort Collins schedule at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium. That afternoon, a 2 p.m. Ag Day kickoff against Idaho, as part of their new set of green and gold uniforms designed by Russell, the Rams will debut an orange jersey.

CSU’s ram-horn helmets will not change but with the orange jersey the team has three pants options: White, green or gold. Before deciding on one of those options, Head Coach Steve Fairchild is asking for fan feedback on what combination looks best.

The Rams and Russell are finalizing the new uniform designs, CSU’s first change since 2003. Meanwhile, Under Armour has become the official footwear provider of CSU football, and the Rams will lace up the brand’s customized cleats this fall, to complement the new threads.

Honoring the late Keli McGregor Sept. 25

Also on Sept. 25, the Rams are honoring the late Keli McGregor. Members of his family will serve as honorary captains and CSU will implement a program to generate revenue, either through ticket sales from that game or donations at the game, to be given on behalf of CSU athletics to the Rockies foundation to support youth sports, in McGregor's name.

Rocky Mountain Showdown single-game tickets on sale July 12

On Monday, CSU fans will have their first opportunity to purchase single-game tickets to any Rams home game, including the 2010 Rocky Mountain Showdown in Denver.

However, in order to sit on the sidelines in the lower bowl at that Sept. 4 contest at Invesco Field, fans must first join the Ram Club for as little as $100 per year. Lower-bowl sideline tickets in Denver have a $90 face value.

But fans can save nearly 40 percent off that CU game sideline ticket by purchasing CSU season tickets. For information on purchasing season tickets, call 1-800/491-RAMS.

Ram Club membership is very affordable, starting at just $100 per year, with the option of $25 quarterly installments. The Ram Club, with 2,000 members nationwide, funds student-athlete scholarships at CSU.

Additional Invesco Field options are a $65 lower-bowl seat in the end zone, a $110 club-level seat, or a $55 seat in the upper deck.

CSU season-ticket holders, Ram Club members or family of CSU players can purchase CU game tickets through the Rams ticket office (1-800/491-RAMS or All other fans should purchase their Rocky Mountain Showdown tickets through TicketMaster, at

The face value of all CU game tickets does not include a $5 processing fee.

Student tickets, and student-guest tickets, to CU game

Student tickets for Rocky Mountain Showdown, all priced at $25 (price includes a $5 fee), will go on sale July 19, and will be available only online at

All CSU student customers will receive general-admission tickets assigned to one of three zones in the Rams’ student sections at Invesco Field. Those that purchase first will be placed in a lower-field-level zone. Once that zone sells out, student customers will be placed in an upper-field-level zone. The last to purchase will be placed in an upper-bowl zone.

Students that wish to purchase a guest ticket for a non-CSU student can do so for $60 (price includes a $5 fee). Those guest tickets will be assigned to the purchasing student’s zone so the guest can sit next to the student in general-admission seating.

All student and student-guest tickets to the CU game will be print at home. Students should save their confirmation numbers at the time of purchase. In mid-August, the Denver Broncos will e-mail student customers tickets they can print at home.

Bus transportation for students to CU game

Also, in conjunction with the Associated Students of Colorado State University, or ASCSU, the university again will offer round-trip bus transportation for an affordable $12. That option will be available on beginning July 19, so students if they desire can purchase transportation with their tickets.

Single-game tickets in Fort Collins

That Sept. 25 Orange Out contest kicks off a five-game Fort Collins home schedule that also includes a pair of opponents expected to be ranked in the nation’s top 25: TCU and BYU. The Rams also welcome to town former CU assistant Bobby Hauck and his UNLV Rebels for a homecoming battle (Oct. 16). Idaho (Sept. 25), TCU (Oct. 2) and BYU (Nov. 13) all were in bowls at the end of last year.

Single-game tickets to Fort Collins games also go on sale Monday. Sideline tickets to either of the two premium games on the schedule, TCU and UNLV, are $40 for adults. The adult sideline price for any of the other contests, Idaho, BYU or New Mexico (Oct. 30), is $30.
