This season, students looking to see the Reno 1868 FC take to the pitch in person will be offered a special deal. 

Throughout the 2020 season, students will only be charged $5 for entry to Greater Nevada Field to see the Reno 1868 FC. Additionally, the team’s friendly match against San Diego Loyal on Feb. 29, will be free for all students. 

Also included in this special deal to students is a $2 beer offer.

The offer applies to all Reno-area college students. That includes students at the University of Nevada, Reno, Truckee Meadows Community College and Sierra Nevada College. To receive the offer, students need only to go to the box office at Greater Nevada Field and present their student IDs. This applies to the match on Feb. 29 and throughout the season.

General Manager for the Reno 1868 FC, Doug Raftery, commented on his excitement to be able to offer this special deal to the students of Reno.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this to college students,” Raftery said. “I know college students will add to the rowdy atmosphere that exists at Greater Nevada Field, to make this a tough place for visiting clubs.”

The friendly match against San Diego Loyal will start at 12 p.m.
