CSU supporters have now purchased more than 2,000 of the commemorative bricks that will be built into the north plaza of Colorado State University’s new on-campus stadium. Alumni, fans and other supporters of the stadium propelled the brick sales beyond the 2,000 brick milestone in just over seven months since the campaign began, reflecting the high level of excitement and anticipation for the 2017 opening of the stadium.
Sales began in mid-October during CSU’s 2015 Homecoming and Family Weekend, and the first 1,000 bricks sold in just two months. Bricks may be purchased through January 2017.
“We’re very excited about this milestone and the overall success of the brick campaign for the new on-campus stadium,” said David Crum, Sr. Associate A.D. for Development at Colorado State. “The demand for commemorative bricks has been overwhelming in the first seven-plus months since the launch, and we look forward to hitting our goal of 3,500 by the start of 2017.”
Commemorative bricks, available in multiple sizes, serve as perfect gifts, dedications and celebrations, and provide lasting memories for fans. Purchases are considered charitable contributions to the multi-purpose facility, which also will house the new CSU Alumni Center. Bricks also count as a stadium gift for athletics priority points.
The bricks will be built into the North Plaza of the new stadium, forming the word “RAMS,” at the main fan entrance on gamedays along Pitkin Street. In the same location, the iconic “Rocky Mountain Rumble” statue will be featured, creating a powerful tribute to Colorado State University.
Each fully-customizable brick may be personalized for any type of commemoration or recognition. Brick sizes include a 4”x8” option for $125, an 8”x8” option for $250 and an 8”x8” option with a logo for $300. All bricks come with a certificate of acknowledgement, and gift certificates are available to let recipients choose their own message.
Design and purchases may be completed online at stadium.colostate.edu/bricks or by calling toll-free at 844-RAM-BRIX (726-2749).
