All right, now that the UCLA athletic department has released the new seating charts and the donation levels and season ticket prices for each section, we can get to the nitty gritty of this project.
Below are two charts, the first details the annual donation required and the second shows the season ticket pricing (click to enlarge):
Now, mind you, I happen to think that this project is a disaster, so perhaps I am biased in my approach, but I will try to remain fair and stick to the numbers. Essentially, I am trying to figure out what the annual revenue will be based on this configuration, and I will then try to see how that differs with the annual revenue from the previous configuration.
Right off the bat, you can see that the previous Den seats on the sideline are now available for a $3200 annual donation at a season ticket price of $1198. That is not the whole picture, but it gives you an idea of what the morgan off-center was up to.
In order to do my analysis, I need your help. If any of you can tell me exactly how many seats there are in each section, or if you know where I can get that information, I will run all the numbers. And if that pesky thing called work doesn't get in the way, I might come up with my own seating chart that just might make more sense so that we can discuss it in the community.
Some of you have given feedback that previous season ticket holders are not renewing their seats...I can't blame them, why pay significantly more for the same exact seats? In any case, I would be grateful if any of you could help me out for this exercise. Cheers.
