From Arkansas State University
The Arkansas State women's basketball team held its first
meeting of the "Project 3,584" campaign at Upper Crust Pizza on Tuesday
night in preparation for the start of 2012-13 regular season.
The campaign is comprised of a 40-member committee that will be selling tickets to ASU's regular season home opener against Wichita State on Thursday, Nov. 15 at the group rate of $4. The goal of the committee is help ASU break its single-game, non-doubleheader attendance record of 3,583, which was set against Ole Miss in 1996.
"While season ticket numbers are strong this year we want to make a splash with our first home game of the season," ASU head women's basketball coach Brian Boyer said. "The atmosphere that we create for our first game can make a dramatic impact on attendance and interest for the remainder of the season."
The 40-member committee will be divided into four teams and will sell tickets to individual and businesses throughout Northeast Arkansas. Each team member will be responsible for selling at least 50 tickets, with each team selling a total of 500 tickets.
The teams will meet once a week leading up to the Red Wolves' home opener to check on the progress of ticket sales and give updates.
