There is a waiting list for chair-back and bleacher-back season tickets.
 
To renew your account or to become a Zips soccer season ticket holder, log on to GoZips.com/tickets, call 1-888-99-AKRON (25766) or visit the Akron Athletics Ticket Office at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field (located at the southwest corner of the venue, near Gate 1).

Championship bling available to Zips soccer fans

By Michael Beaven Published: April 7, 2011

The University of Akron announced that fans can purchase a 2010 national championship replica ring or pendant in celebration of the Zips men's soccer program that won the title.
 
Short sleeve T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts and hooded sweatshirts were first made available to the public. The replica championship ring - made from Celestrium stainless steel - is a copy of what the UA coaching staff and players will receive for their accomplishment last season. Last names up to 14 characters can be added to personalize a ring.  Pendants, which are identical to the face of the ring, include a chain, but names cannot be added.
 
Both the pendant and replica ring can be purchased for $250 each. All orders must be received by July 1, 2011, as supplies are limited.

"The bond between this championship team and our fans was amazing, and with Coach Porter's encouragement we wanted to offer this option to recognize how much we believe they, our fans, are a part of our team," UA Director of Athletics Tom Wistrcill said.   "We look forward to presenting rings to those Zips fans who take advantage of this exclusive opportunity."
