    After January 2019 , season ticket holders will get 2 old Coli seats to take home. Maybe I put them in my man cave.

    you mean those crumbling fiberglass plastic buckets with the rusty arms we have been in for decades?

    I think this is cool! I wouldn't mind having seats 15-18, in which I have sat for 40 years. I could mount them in my front yard and watch the world go by! My Sainted Wife would have a coronary!

    As I get older, I become more of a sentimental old coot. Since our group of ten renews our season tickets through one individual, I think we'll be offered only two seats. If anyone doesn't want to cart their seats home, could you let me know? I'm not hindered by having to comply with a WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) and I think I'd enjoy watching the great games of yesteryear why feeling like I'm sitting in the Coli.

    USC reported on this at the May 24 Coliseum Commission meeting. USC will provide season ticket holders and donors with two complimentary seats in recognition of their support. An outreach program to the 15,000 account holders would be conducted, giving the supporters the option of receiving two seats if they confirm by August 1

    After August 1, and lasting through the 2018 football season, a marketing program for fans to purchase seats would be conducted by USC so members of the general public would have the opportunity to purchase old Coliseum seats. Three tiers of seats would be offered:

    • As-Is…a pair of seats that come ‘straight from the stadium’; customer would be responsible for the mounting/display. Suggested price $299.00/set of 2
    • Mounted…a pair of seats mounted on a base for the customer. Suggested price $399.00/set of 2.
    • Restored...a pair of seats cleaned, metal arms repainted and mounted on a base for the customer. Suggested price $699.00/set of 2.

    After the last Rams 2018 home game, the old seats will be removed (approximately January-February 2019) and the pre-orders will be fulfilled. While it is just an estimate, between the Athletic accounts and potential sales, USC believe the total number of seats needed would be approximately 20,000.

    Proceeds from the sale of the seats would go into USC's Coliseum operating budget and utilized for stadium repairs and upgrades.

    hmmmmm, I wonder how many would buy a refurbished one. We could strip the metal and recoat and fill and reinforce fiberglass with Kevlar to stop the deterioration and put new custom seat number on it and an adapter base to suit your living room. Oh yeah and new springs. Call it "Newly Remanufactured" and issue a 337 and an 8130-3 for return to service. Maybe pay a license fee to the Athletic Dept to help fund the new seats. prolly just another hair brained idea...... But what would you pay?

    My bRuin brother has his old seats from Pauley Pavilion when they renovated. They look great in his office. I'm glad those of us without season tickets can purchase some.

    I just got the email and reserved my 2 seats.

    My confirmation email is correct:

    "You've secured your piece of history" - Damn right!

    Thank you, USC.
