The Wolf Pack Athletic Association launched a new website earlier this month that will serve as a portal for all tickets, parking, special events, fundraising, alumni outreach and engagement.
The website – NevadaWolfPack.com/WPAA – includes a number of new features, including an enhanced ticket central page; expanded information on WPAA membership, benefits and timelines; and detailed access to giving history and Priority Point totals and rank.
“A core piece of our mission is to transform the lives of our student-athletes academically, athletically and socially,” Wolf Pack athletic director Doug Knuth said in a news release. “In order to continue to do that successfully, we must grow support for Wolf Pack Athletics. This website is an important part of making that happen.”
The website unveils an improved benefit structure and marks the start of the annual membership drive for the WPAA. In addition to annual gifts to the Pack Excellence Fund, which provides critical unrestricted support to Nevada Athletics, gifts to individual sports and seat premiums for football and basketball will all count towards membership levels.
“This is a big day for Nevada athletics,” Nevada’s senior associate athletics director for development Craig Fink said in a news release. “This website and our new benefit structure are significant steps forward as we continue to build a greater sense of community among our donors and season-ticketholders. We also hope that it will allow us to engage with even more people throughout Northern Nevada and across the country.”
The website features details on a revised dual-points system that was required due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that went into effect in 2018. The system now features Silver Points and Blue Points. Silver Points are used for seat selection for season tickets. Blue Points are used for road game tickets, including bowl games, NCAA tournaments, and parking at home events. Historical points prior to 2018 are now considered "Legacy Points" and make up the base for both Silver and Blue Points
The website also marks the launch of a re-branded e-venue website that serves as the interface for all ticket sales. This new site features enhanced information for donors and season-ticketholders who will now have access to giving history, Priority Point totals and rank, and a calculator that helps to show how to improve your ranking.
The WPAA was formed in 2020 as part of a re-brand and re-organization of the Nevada Athletics Development Operation. The WPAA, formerly known as the Athletic Association of the University of Nevada (AAUN), serves as the umbrella organization for tickets, parking, special events, fundraising and alumni outreach and engagement for Nevada Athletics.
Gifts to Nevada Athletics will still be processed through the UNR Foundation.
