"Phase III premium seating will continue to be sold after December 18 until the seating capacity is completely sold out," Meyer says. "However, all purchases after December 18 will be seated behind the customers who made their commitment by this Friday, regardless of donations to the project or the customer's Ticket Priority System (TPS) rank."

At the recent town hall meetings held by WSU Athletic Director Jim Sterk, it was reported that suite and loge commitments are nearing 100 percent but that 60 percent of the 1,200 club seats are still there for the taking.
If everything comes together in the time line Sterk wants, the ambitious Phase III renovation can be completed in time for the 2011 season. It not, it will be the 2012 season.
Meyer notes that to secure premium seats now only requires a down payment -- a $300 deposit per seat -- with full payment not due until spring 2011 at the earliest.

The importance of Phase III to the Cougar football program cannot be overstated, Meyer says. The 2,200 premium seats created will nearly double the revenue the school generates from home football games, from about $2 million currently to approximately $4 million. And second, having a jewel of a stadium will put a supercharge into recruiting efforts –- world-class facilities help attract world-class athletes.
