As the cost of tuition at the University of Utah increases each year, the Crimson Club is called upon to provide additional dollars in support of student athlete scholarships. While tuition costs increase, the future of funding from the University appears more limited, this makes your Crimson Club membership more important each year.
New and renovated facilities are vitally important for the quality of competition/practice and the safety and performance of our current and future student athletes. Facility enhancements are essential for Utah Athletics to be successful at the conference and national level.
Season Ticket and Television Revenue Is Not Enough
In the past, many athletic departments earned enough money each year through ticket sales and television revenue to finance the majority of a university’s athletics program. For a variety of reasons, in this day and age, football and basketball ticket sales, along with television revenues, are not enough to support the total intercollegiate athletic program. Private support from alumni, friends and fans provides the necessary financial support to supplement the difference.
Athletics is the Window to the University
Utah Athletics is nationally known and followed by alumni, friends and fans around the world. When Utah Athletics succeeds, much attention is focused on the University and the many outstanding programs it has to offer.
Utah Athletics is a quality program and one that deserves your support. Utah student athletes are active in the community, successful in the classroom and winners in competition. You can be proud to support the Crimson Club and Utah Athletics.
We need your help and hope you will join the Crimson Club today. If you are a member, we thank you, and hope you will help us find new members or make an additional pledge of added support.
