“Kickoff With Coach Taggart” Events Reach Capacity After Six Days

Taggart to make four stops around the Bay Area, June 6-9

 

TAMPA, MAY 18, 2016 – With excitement for the 2016 football season building daily, four Bay Area “Kickoff With Coach Taggart” events featuring fourth-year USF Head Coach Willie Taggart have reached capacity.

 

Registrations for events, scheduled June 6-9 with stops in Bradenton/Sarasota, Brandon, Tampa and St. Petersburg, reached capacity for all four venues just six days after they were announced.

 

“This is a terrific indicator of the enthusiasm surrounding our football program and Bulls fans’ anticipation of an exciting 2016 season,” said USF Director of Athletics Mark Harlan. “We are really looking forward to seeing that passion and energy in person when we connect with the Bulls Nation faithful in the Bay Area in June.”

 

Fans pre-registered on-line for the free events. Due to limited capacity, no walk-ups will be accepted and only pre-registered fans will be admitted to the events that will hit some of the Bay Area’s hot spots, including Pier 22 in Bradenton, Top Golf in Brandon, Ulele restaurant in Tampa, and The Canopy Rooftop Lounge at the Birchwood in St. Petersburg.

 

Fans are encouraged to check back to GoUSFBulls.com in the coming weeks to see if space becomes available.

It's a good sign-let's hope it turns into ticket sales.

Exactly. These events are free, so it didn't technically "sell-out." I hope within the folks that are going, we're able to get a few more new (or previously disgruntled) donors out of it. We need to do more outreach to get former USF season ticket holders back in the fold.

Believe that was/is a point of emphasis this year.  Mr Lewis can enlighten us.

It is a point of emphasis for sure.

I know the overwhelming majority of our new season ticket members/Bulls Club donors this year have had tickets in the past and recently dropped out.

We have also renewed over 90% of last years football season ticket members, which is a percentage I do not believe we've ever hit before.

That's good news. We've got to keep building and expanding that base. Big time football requires big time fans (and consistent winning).
