According to a release from the university, the LOI program is a formal request requiring a deposit to enter into the priority seating program, which uses points to select seat locations for donors.
The plan behind the points system and seating programs is to achieve an equitable distribution of seating to Fifth Third Bank Stadium, the 8,300-seat facility currently used by Kennesaw State’s women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse programs. Only 4,100 tickets will be available through public sale and purchased through a season-ticket plan.
“Sending in the LOI locks in the ticket price and seat location for a donor in the first three seasons and helps to build our donor base,” said Erin Kerr, director of the Owls Fund, the KSU athletic department’s fundraising program. “The LOI requires a $20 refundable deposit for each season-ticket request, and gets you in line among the donors to get season tickets.
“Each LOI is time-stamped, so the earlier we receive it, the better. The LOI does not guarantee your football tickets, but it provides a donor priority during the seating selection process.”
Donating to the Owls Fund and purchasing season tickets for other Kennesaw State sports helps to build up a donor’s priority points, which will ultimately be used to determine seating.
According to the release, a season-ticket deposit call center will be staffed starting at 9 a.m. today, with hours of operation will continuing until 4 p.m. on weekdays. The call center will remain open through April 12.
