We need your help!
As some of you know, the Florida Gators have been invited to play in the USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championship June 2 &3 in Philadelphia, PA. This will be the third CRC televised on NBC. We polled our own rugby alumni and the parents prior to committing to this and the positive response was overwhelming that the Gator Nation would buy the tickets needed to support the Gators.
As of today, our tickets sales have been grim. If we do not sell 300 tickets by the end of February, we will be invoiced for the remaining tickets. We would greatly appreciate your help! As of now, tickets are discounted by $10. This great deal will expire Feb 29, 2012. Simply click the link to CRC tickets on our home page.
Tickets will be $43 after Feb 29th. If someone would like to front the money for a group of tickets (10, 50, 100?); please direct an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll sell the tickets and recoup your investment before June. If you cannot attend the weekend of the tournament but would still like to support the rugby team, please consider some of our other options. You can purchase a ticket and donate it to the club where we can distribute it to some local students in the area. If you prefer to simply write a check in donation to the club, please make it out to the University of Florida Foundation, and put UF Men’s Rugby in the memo line. Checks can be sent to the address listed at the bottom of this post.
Any support would be greatly appreciated whether in monetary form or by putting fans in the seats! So if you are in the area, please consider coming out to support the Gators! We would love to see a large crowd in the stands and make our presence known on national television! Don’t worry if you’re new to the game of rugby. I guarantee that the tournament will provide a great weekend of fun and entertainment, as some high quality matches will be played. Perhaps you’ll even catch a glimpse of some future USA Olympians as they work for a spot in the 2016 games.
Once again, we would really appreciate your support and as always, Go Gators!
