Nebraska’s Home Sellout Streak Stays Alive

August 31, 2021

Thanks to the new “Red Carpet Experience” Nebraska’s football sellout streak will continue for one more game, according to a press release from Nebraska.

“We had two generous donors come forward and purchase the remaining tickets for the home opener so that we could provide those tickets to young people throughout the state,” Nebraska Vice-Chancellor, Director of Athletics Trev Alberts said. “These donors have a strong commitment to Nebraska Athletics and understand our history and tradition. They also have a desire for young people, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, to experience a Nebraska Football game day at Memorial Stadium.”

The Red Carpet Experience will provide complimentary tickets to underserved youth across the state of Nebraska. The game with Fordham will be the 376th consecutive sellout at Memorial Stadium. Tickets remain available for each of the Huskers’ six other home games at Memorial Stadium.

The Red Carpet Experience program is being coordinated by Dr. Lawrence Chatters, Nebraska’s Senior Associate Athletic Director for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Chatters said it is important for Nebraska Athletics to continue to seek innovative ways to increase access to Husker fans of all ages and backgrounds.

“The ‘Red Carpet Experience’ is about increasing access to more underserved youth across our state,” Chatters said. “There are a number of young Husker fans who are unable to attend a football game due to their economic circumstances. We are hopeful that this initiative will open up the opportunity to experience the great atmosphere of Memorial Stadium to more people across Nebraska, especially our underserved youth.”

Nebraska faces Fordham at 11 a.m. on Saturday in the home opener.
