Buy Season Tickets - Get A Special Helmet Set!|
Aug. 19, 2017
In celebration of the 50th Year of Rebel Football, UNLV Athletics has created a special collection of pocket-sized helmets as a unique gift for season-ticket holders.
The six-helmet set, produced by Riddell, features three different helmet designs from head coach Tony Sanchez’s first two seasons along with three “throwback” helmets from previous decades.
The helmets are only available to UNLV football season-ticket buyers (one per account) as a show of appreciation for their support as we approach the 50th season-opening kickoff in school history September 2 vs. Howard University at 6 p.m.
Season tickets to the program's six home dates, which include BYU, Hawai’i and San Diego State, are on sale now and start as low as $99 (plus fees). Log on to UNLVtickets.com or call (702) 739-FANS to purchase or for more information.
Current or new account holders can collect their helmet set at a Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Event scheduled around the team’s practice on campus Sunday, August 27. Invitations to the special event were emailed Friday. The helmet sets will also be available for pickup for existing and new accounts at the Rebel Block Party before the season-opening game September 2 and starting this week at the Thomas & Mack Center Box Office during regular business hours.
The historical helmets feature a silver design from 1982-86 that was worn by College Football Hall of Famer Randall Cunningham and his teammates as they became 1984 conference and California Bowl champions.
Also included in the set is a stylized silver helmet with a red facemask worn from1987-89 that features a cursive “Las Vegas” splashed over the top of a large red N.
The final throwback design comes from the 1973-74 seasons when future NFL players Mike Thomas led the nation in rushing and quarterback Glenn Carano was beginning his heralded career. The Rebels went a combined 20-4 in those two campaigns, including reaching the NCAA semifinals in 1974. The red helmet features a gray facemask, thick striping on top and the number 50 on one side to commemorate this year’s celebration.
