NLC Announces New “One Team Commitment” Plan

Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics and the Nittany Lion Club have released information regarding new football seating options for fans based on new donation levels that will start in the 2013 season.

The Nittany Lion Club will kick off a new “One Team Commitment” plan, which allows NLC members to take part in a five-year commitment that includes bonus points each year. The point system helps determine seating priority for club members. Both current and prospective members can take part in the plan.

Along with the NLC’s announcement of their new commitment plan comes an updated seating chart, which shows new zones for NLC members and creates a new $200/seat donation level. NLC members will now have more options to choose from in terms of both donation levels and seat location. There will be no increase in ticket prices for 2013.

“The changes this year are put into place with two goals in mind,” said Athletic Director David Joyner.  “One – offer our fans additional, more appealing options in order to maximize the number of Nittany Lion fans coming to Beaver Stadium and cheering on our team each week, and two – grow the revenues needed to maintain – in an increasingly difficult climate — the excellent competitive and classroom performance that Penn Staters everywhere expect.”

NLC members can renew their memberships for 2013 immediately online and earn a total of eight points — five for renewing before the deadline of November 1 and three for using the online renewal service. The “One Team Commitment” plan will double NLC points for annual donations in each year of the plan, with 50 NLC bonus points upon the completion of the five years. The NLC will also guarantee set donation per seat levels for the entirety of the five years.

“Our fans have been tremendously supportive over the past several months,” said Penn State football Head Coach Bill O’Brien, “and they’ve already made a difference for our kids this season.”
