Aggie men’s and women’s basketball returns to The Pavilion in December, and while, officially, there will be no fans in the stands, we know of a way to get you in: as a member of the Aggie Cutout Crew — your image on cardboard!
Your presence — or that of your pet — will serve two purposes: to show support for our teams, of course, and to be part of the cutout crowd representing Aggie Pride for the TV cameras (when the games are televised). You will keep your seats for as long as he no-fans-in-the-stands rule applies.
If you want to be in your seat by the first game (Aggie men vs. Portland), Dec. 5, you must order your cutout by Nov. 10. After that, cutouts will be updated weekly, so long as photos are submitted by noon on Tuesdays.
Cutout prices are $50 for one or two, and $25 for every cutout above two; and $25 for students. Faculty and staff are eligible for a $10 discount on the first two cutouts purchased by visiting goagspromo.com and entering the promo code STAFFCUTOUTS. You will find all the details here, including size and composition of the photo you will need to submit, how to order and an FAQ.
The Big West Conference board of directors ordered all teams to begin the season without fans, because of the pandemic. The board indicated it will revisit the issue as the season progresses.
The Aggie men’s preseason schedule starts with three games, Nov. 25, 27 and 28, at the Silicon Valley Classic, and also includes two home games: Saturday, Dec. 5, vs. Portland; and Tuesday, Dec. 22, vs. William Jessup. The men’s first conference games at home will be Jan. 1-2 vs. UC Riverside. More about Aggie men’s basketball, including the complete schedule.
The Aggie women will play in The Pavilion on Sunday and Monday, Dec. 27-28, in their first games of the season and first conference games of the season, hosting CSU Bakersfield. More about Aggie women’s basketball, including the schedule.
