JONESBORO, Ark. (ASU) - The 2013-14 season for the Arkansas State University men's basketball team is rapidly approaching and Red Wolves fans can support the program by joining or renewing their membership to the 6th Man Club or the Top 200 Club.
Membership into A-State Men's Basketball's 6th Man Club, which is under the Red Wolves Foundation, is available for families from one to four individuals while the Top 200 Club membership is open to corporate sponsors or individual donors who contribute a $200 minimum.
"This (club membership) allows a way for the average fan to have special access to our program," said A-State head coach John Brady, who guided the Red Wolves to a 19-12 overall record in 2012-13 along with winning their second Sun Belt Conference (SBC) West Division title in the last three seasons. "Not only do we have a number of exciting events throughout the season such as the fun-filled "Meet the Team" night, but fans have an opportunity to interact with our players as opposed to just seeing them in a uniform.
"The opportunities these clubs have provided over the last five years have been instrumental in growing our program both on and off the court. Everyone who joins as a member is helping play a key role in our basketball program and we greatly appreciate your incredible support," added Brady.
The 6th Man Club membership benefits feature events with head coach John Brady, the popular Meet the Team Banquet, and seven 6th Man Club Pre-Game dinners. Members will also receive a complimentary 2013-14 A-State Men's Basketball Reference Guide along with an open invitation to team practices.
Those who join the Top 200 Club will not only receive all the benefits of the 6th Man Club, but also have their corporate logo displayed at all A-State men's basketball program events. Prospective members will also receive a 2013-14 Red Wolves' men's basketball team photo and two representatives per business will have a complimentary pass to an A-State men's basketball event/meal.
Along with receiving all 6th Man Club benefits, prospective members of the "Top 200" Club will have their corporate logo displayed at every ASU men's basketball event.
