For the first time ever, Miner fans will have a chance to choose their season ticket seats in person for UTEP basketball games.

UTEP Athletics is launching a “Select-A-Seat” event to encourage season ticket holders for the upcoming 2021-22 men’s and women’s basketball games.

The inaugural event will take place on Thursday, Oct. 7, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The unique initiative is one-of-a-kind and has been a talking point among athletics staff members for years. Plus, fans will get a chance to meet players, coaches and other personnel.

Men’s head coach Joe Golding and women’s head coach Kevin Baker will be at the event, along with players of both teams signing autographs for fans. In addition, the cheer squad and Paydirt Pete will be at the event. 

Season tickets start at $65 for women’s basketball and start at $170 for men’s basketball per seat for all regular-season home games. UTEP athletics personnel will be at the event to assist with any questions and information.

“I’m excited about the upcoming ‘Select-A-Seat’ event on Oct. 7,” UTEP men’s basketball head coach Joe Golding said. “It’s a great way to get the seat you want and meet with some of our players. I appreciate everyone who has bought season tickets already and encourage anyone who hasn’t to please consider it. One of the many special things about Miner basketball is the passionate fan base. It’s time to bring that passion, energy, and magic back to The Don!”

“This will be a great event to reconnect with our fanbase who love watching the Miners play,” UTEP women’s basketball head coach Kevin Baker said. “It has been a while since we have seen the majority of our Miner fans. Most importantly, they will get to meet the new faces on our team. We can’t wait to fill up the Don Haskins Center again, and this is a fantastic way to get the ball rolling. The season will be here soon so get to the Haskins Center and select a seat!”

This event is free and open to the public.
