Tickets Tied to Donations
Seating in many of Nebraska's sport venues requires a minimum per seat contribution. Our two soldout venues, Memorial Stadium, 311 consecutive sellouts through the 2010 season, and the Coliseum, sold out for 148 consecutive games through the 2010 season, require an annual contribution for any  new seat. Prime seating for men's basketball at the Devaney Center also requires an annual per seat contribution. Contributions made in order to obtain or determine the location of tickets for football, volleyball, baseball, and men's basketball can be made to a variety of clubs. Gifts given for this purpose assist the athletic department in providing scholarships to student-athletes as well as funding operations, capital improvements and other special projects.

Booster Clubs
Contributions made to sport-specific clubs will not be considered a sustaining donation to obtain or determine the location of football, volleyball, baseball, and men's and women's basketball seating. However, contributions will count toward your priority point total and will only support the club that you have designated. More...

Capital Projects
Contributions made toward capital projects assist the Athletic Department in building and maintaining the finest facilities in the country. These facilities allow us to address the needs of our student-athletes in athletics as well as academically. The new Student Life Complex, which had it dedication in September 2010, is one of the most recently completed projects. Construction has also started on the Hendricks Training Complex which will be completed by Fall 2011. In October 2010, UNL Regents approved plans for East Stadium expansion and an indoor baseball/softball practice facility. Plans for renovation of the Bob Devaney Sports Center for a volleyball venue have also be approved. Donations for any of ongoing capital project can be made online, or by calling 402-472-2367 or 1-800-8 BIGRED.
