LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – UNLV has announced The FANtastic 20, an expanded fan enhancement list for the 2018-19 UNLV men’s basketball season.

 

In the fall of 2017, UNLV Athletics surveyed its fans and conducted a comprehensive listening tour asking constituent groups for their opinions and suggestions regarding the gameday experience at UNLV sporting events. The Athletics Department listened carefully and developed the FANtastic 7 last year, seven initiatives to enhance the gameday experience, to create more fan engagement and to improve the overall atmosphere.

“We received great feedback last year,” said UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois. “As we continued surveying our fans and analyzing the data, we continued our quest to improve and be as responsive to Rebel fans as possible. We created the Rebel Fan Council and developed the FANtastic 20 for this football season, and now we have the same for basketball. We are confident that fans will enjoy and benefit from the new things that we are implementing as we strive to create memorable experiences for them as well as for our student-athletes.”

The 20 new initiatives for Runnin’ Rebel fans that will be rolled out over the course of the 2018-19 season are below.
