UCLA Rewards Fans
Los Angeles, CA - UCLA has unveiled a point system to determine the pecking order by which fans get to choose their seats in a renovated Pauley Pavilion.
The aging basketball arena is set to undergo a makeover in time for the 2012-13 season.
The university announced a plan Tuesday that ranks ticket holders, giving credit to alumni, longtime season ticket holders and donors who help pay for the $185 million renovation.
Athletic director Dan Guerrero called it an effort to ``recognize the longtime supporters of UCLA athletics.'' The price increases won't be clear until next week when ticket holders receive statements informing them of their ranking.
Courtside seats will require a $500,000 donation to the capital campaign, payable over five years, plus an annual donation of $17,000 per seat to the Wooden Athletic Fund.
