It is no secret that the University of Cincinnati considers its season ticket holders and UCATS members to be the lifeblood of our program. Without their support, both on and off the field, we would not be able to achieve championships on the field of play and success in the classroom. They are the most critical part of our family. As the Bearcats Football season ticket and UCATS membership renewal deadline approaches on Friday, the Department of Athletics thought it would be exciting to showcase some of our season ticket holders and let them tell their stories as to why they support UC Football.

    I moved to Clifton when I was 14, and have attended games since 1963 – but only the second half because we had to sneak in…
  • Why is it important to you to spend the fall inside Nippert Stadium?
    1) Deeply cultural/institutional bond that’s impossible to articulate; 2) my awesome College of Business students are players, cheerleaders, dance team members and I like to support their amazing skills/efforts
  • What is your favorite part of being a season ticket holder?
    The weather, the food, the game, the band, the campus, the tradition, the positive environment – and let’s not forget WINNING!!!!!!!!!!
  • SEASON TICKET HOLDER: Greg Cappel

  • Where are you from?
    Born and raised in Finneytown, living in Independence, KY right now.
  • How long have you been a season ticket holder?
    This will be year #6 for me.
  • How are you connected to the program?
    UC COB, class of 2003
  • Why are you a football season ticket holder?
    I enjoy the atmosphere at the games, I love being able to support the team, and it’s a great value for the money.
  • Why is it important to you to spend the fall inside Nippert Stadium?
    I love seeing the team in action, and it gives me a chance to hang out with my nephew, and turn him into a bearcat!
  • Are you excited about playing all seven games in Nippert Stadium?
    Yes, while I love the tailgating atmosphere and amenities at PBS, when it’s not full, it’s really not that great. Even with 28k, Nippert is a great home field advantage.
  • What is your favorite part of being a season ticket holder?
    Tailgating in the alumni lot, seeing the dancing bobblehead on the screen after we score, seeing the team come out of the tunnel… I just love everything about gameday. Especially when they’re night games.
