MARYVILLE, Missouri – Due to the suspension of the 2020 Northwest Missouri State University football regular season, the Bearcat athletic department is announcing the options available to season ticket holders.
“We are disappointed to have the fall 2020 sports seasons suspended and want to make sure our loyal fans and season tickets holders are aware of the opportunities to support Bearcat Athletics,” Director of Athletics Andy Peterson said. “Intercollegiate athletics provides many positive outlets for student-athletes, coaches, administrators and fans. We are coping with many different outcomes as a result of COVID-19 and entering areas that intercollegiate athletics have never encountered before. We want to honor scholarships to those student-athletes who have worked so hard to represent us in their competitive areas and whose careers have now been impacted so negatively. Our fans continued support of Bearcat Athletics is so appreciated and allows us to continue providing first-class experiences for all of our student-athletes.”
Football season ticket holders, who have yet to renew, are encouraged to consider a gift to the Northwest Foundation to support the Bearcat Athletics Scholarship Fund.
The options for season ticket holders are as follows:
Season Ticket Holders:
1.Transfer ticket payments to the Northwest Foundation Bearcat Athletics Scholarship Fund as a 100% tax-deductible donation and honor your previous Bearcat Booster Club contribution.*
2.Request a refund of ticket payments, but honor previous Bearcat Booster Club contribution.
3.Full refund of ticket money and Bearcat Booster Club contribution.
Priority Seating (Chairback/Railback/Stadium Club/Suite) Season Ticket Holders:
1.Transfer ticket payments to the Northwest Foundation Athletics Scholarship Fund as a 100% tax-deductible donation and convert your priority seating payment to a tax-deductible donation.*
2.Request a refund of ticket payments, but convert your priority seating payment to a tax-deductible donation.
3.Request that Bearcat Athletics contact you about other options.
Please click on the link below and enter your name, address, phone, and email; then select the option for how you want your season-ticket payment to be processed. Bearcat Athletics will start the process of moving funds and/or refunding our season-ticket holders as soon as possible.
*This fund has been set up to provide specific opportunities for gifts restricted to student-athlete scholarships. The goal for this program is to annually secure gifts that will continue to build scholarship budgets each year to operate at the maximum amount permitted in accordance with NCAA legislation. Once those levels are attained, funds from other revenue sources can be moved from scholarship budgets to assist with operational needs. The goal, over time, is to supplant a large majority of annual scholarship expenses with this fund, so that other sources of revenue can be used to meet other needs.
