FOX Sports Southwest and the Texas Rangers announce they are bringing back Texas Rangers University Days for a second season in 2015. The special ticket promotion is for universities in Texas and Oklahoma.
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. Texas Tech, TCU, North Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M are back to participate in 2015 with newcomer SMU joining the promotion this season. More schools could be added later.
"We’re excited to continue to present University Days with the Texas Rangers," said FOX Sports Southwest Senior Vice President/General Manager Jon Heidtke. "We deliver the ideal platform to bring together several of our collegiate partners with our Major League Baseball partner to provide compelling offers for Rangers fans from universities throughout our region."
The promotion includes reduced ticket prices, a limited edition Texas Rangers cap in the school’s colors that this season will include the school’s logo for fans that purchase the special tickets (limited quantities available), on-field pregame participation by coaches, players or noted alumni, and recognition of the university on FOX Sports Southwest’s live game broadcast.
The FOX Sports Southwest Rangers Fan Express VIP luxury bus and the FOX Sports Southwest Girls will be integrated into the promotion.
"The Rangers are excited to once again be able to offer college students and alumni from these universities in Texas and Oklahoma the opportunity to enjoy Major League Baseball at Globe Life Park in Arlington," said Rangers Executive Vice President for Communications John Blake. "We want to thank Fox Sports Southwest for partnering with us on this effort, and we look forward to hosting the schools at the ballpark."
