Students in fan section at SUU Football GameThe Thunderbird Athletic Department has announced that the 2018 home football season resulted in a new single-season ticket revenue record for the university.

For the fifth-straight season, the football program experienced a new high for season ticket revenue, and this year’s number was seven percent higher than the mark reached during the 2017 Big Sky Conference Championship run.   

And for the third-straight season there was an average attendance over 8,200 fans inside Eccles Coliseum at each home game. This year’s final attendance mark weighed in at 8,204.

“Thank you to the Cedar City community and all of T-Bird Nation for the continued support,” Southern Utah Deputy Director of Athletics Frank Pucher said. “The credit for this accomplishment goes to coach Warren and his program for continuing to represent the University so positively. Our external staff has done a great job in recent years of engaging our community and providing compelling reasons for our fan base to come out and enjoy the excitement of SUU football, but at the end of the day it is coach Warren and the young men on the team who deserve the recognition.”
