$100k Donor Match Initiative
Will Go Towards Naming of
Wrestling Assistant Coach’s Office
Dedicated to Sam Cali
JUNE 28 – PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Season tickets for the upcoming 2017-18 Rutgers wrestling season are now on sale. Season tickets can be purchased or renewed by contacting the Rutgers Athletics ticket office at 1-866-445-GORU (4678) or by visiting www.scarletknights.com. The renewal deadline for season tickets is Friday, Oct. 6.
The Scarlet Knights also announced a $100,000 season ticket challenge in conjunction with selling 2,000 season tickets for the 2017-18 campaign. For every season ticket sold beyond 1,200 season tickets, an anonymous donor will donate $125 per season ticket sold up to 2,000 season tickets.
All money generated from the initiative will go towards the naming of a Rutgers wrestling assistant coach’s office at the new RWJBarnabas Health Athletic Performance Center in memory of the late Sam Cali, a former Rutgers wrestler who passed away last summer.
“It is a great privilege to have Sam remembered in a place that meant so much to him at Rutgers University and on the mat with his teammates,” said the Cali family. “Sam was so proud to be a part of the Rutgers wrestling community. Now the memory of Sam Cali can be honored in the room dedicated in his name.”
Season ticket pricing, along with group ticket and single-match ticket information, can be found at the bottom of this release. As a Priority Point sport, a tax-deductible Rutgers Scholarship Fund seat gift will be included in the total season ticket price. Fans who renew their season tickets and contribute an RSF gift by June 30 will receive a complimentary Rutgers wrestling t-shirt.
Each wrestling season ticket purchased for the 2017-2018 season and future seasons will factor into the current season tickets purchased, consecutive years of purchase, and loyalty points categories of Priority Points.
Priority Points are what Rutgers Athletics uses to determine seating and parking at football, men’s and women’s basketball and wrestling. Priority Points are also used for away game and post season tickets. For more information on Priority Points, please call 1-866-445-GORU.

Prior to its six home matches at the RAC, Rutgers also hosts Maryland at Yankee Stadium as part of the “Big Ten Battle in the Bronx,” a football and wrestling doubleheader between the two schools on Nov. 4. Tickets for both contests can be purchased through the Rutgers Athletics ticket office.
