NIU Night includes specially priced tickets and a giveaway item for the university’s students, alumni and fans. The first 1,500 fans who purchase their tickets through the special ticket link (whitesox.com/NIU) will receive co-branded White Sox and NIU baseball caps. Make sure to type in “NIU” as the offer code for tickets at the White Sox website.
Better yet, alumni get two free tickets, as well as the baseball cap, for joining the NIU Alumni Association or renewing their membership this month. Membership entitles you to discounts to alumni events, a discount on football season tickets, access to career webinars, an NIU email address and many other perks. This offer expires once the tickets are gone, so sign up early at myniu.com/membership.
“The NIU Alumni Association and university have enjoyed a strong partnership in a variety of areas with the Chicago White Sox for several years,” said Joe Matty, associate vice president for university advancement and executive director of the NIU Alumni Association. “We thank the White Sox for their generous support of the university and its mission, and we are excited about NIU’s expanded presence at U.S. Cellular Field throughout the 2015 season.”
This partnership also includes an interactive scoreboard fan camera feature throughout the season. The feature will showcase fans enjoying themselves at the games on U.S. Cellular Field’s center field video board.
“The White Sox enjoy building relationships with local universities, especially when it involves engaging fans of both the Sox and the university,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We are thrilled to welcome NIU, their alumni and fans to U.S. Cellular Field this season and can’t wait to see all the Huskie fans at the ballpark on June 17.”
