ARLINGTON, Texas — FOX Sports Southwest and the Texas Rangers are bringing back Texas Rangers University Days for a fourth season in 2017. The special ticket promotion is for select universities in FSSW’s coverage territory.
Participating universities will receive discounted tickets for students and alumni to attend a Rangers game designated and promoted by the Rangers and FOX Sports Southwest as the school’s “game day” at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
The University of Oklahoma and University of Arkansas have been added to the lineup of schools this season. Coming back to participate in 2017 are Baylor, North Texas, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas A&M, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas and UT-Arlington.
“We are always looking for compelling ways to engage our viewers and fans. Expanding the successful University Days campaign to include more schools in our viewing area is a great example of how FOX Sports Southwest celebrates professional and collegiate teams, optimizes partnerships, provides value and allows fans to celebrate their fandom.” said FOX Sports Southwest Senior Vice President/ General Manager Steve Simpson.
The promotion includes reduced ticket prices, a limited edition Texas Rangers cap in the school’s colors and featuring the school’s logo for fans that purchase the special tickets (limited quantities available), on-field pregame participation by the school’s coaches, players or noted alumni, and recognition of the university on FOX Sports Southwest’s live broadcast.
The FOX Sports Southwest Rangers Fan Express VIP luxury bus will be integrated into the promotion.
“The Rangers University Days program continues to grow and we thank the record 11 schools from Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas that will participate in 2017,” said Rangers Executive Vice President for Communications John Blake. “We are proud to be partnering with our great television rightsholder FOX Sports Southwest on this effort, and we look forward to hosting the schools at Globe Life Park in Arlington this season.”
