FOX Sports Southwest and the Texas Rangers are bringing back Texas Rangers University Days for a third season in 2016. The special ticket promotion is for universities in Texas and Oklahoma.
Participating universities will receive discounted tickets for students and alumni to attend a Rangers game designated and promoted by the Rangers and FOX Sports Southwest as the school's "game day" at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
UT-Arlington has been added to the lineup of schools this season. Coming back to participate in 2016 are Baylor, North Texas, Oklahoma State, SMU, Texas A&M, TCU and Texas Tech.
"University Days has proven to be a popular and successful promotion for the Rangers and participating schools," said FOX Sports Southwest Senior Vice President/General Manager Jon Heidtke. "We deliver the ideal platform to bring together several of our collegiate partners with our Major League Baseball partner to provide compelling offers for Rangers fans from universities in our viewing area."
The promotion includes reduced ticket prices, a limited edition Texas Rangers cap in the school's colors and featuring the school's logo for fans that purchase the special tickets (limited quantities available), on-field pregame participation by the school's coaches, players or noted alumni, and recognition of the university on FOX Sports Southwest's live game broadcast.
The FOX Sports Southwest Rangers Fan Express VIP luxury bus will be integrated into the promotion.
"The Rangers are excited to once again be able to offer college students and alumni from these universities in Texas and Oklahoma the opportunity to enjoy Major League Baseball at Globe Life Park in Arlington," said Rangers Executive Vice President for Communications John Blake. "We want to thank Fox Sports Southwest for partnering with us on this effort, and we look forward to hosting the schools at the ballpark."
