Alumni may buy Big Red Shop
By Jill Zeman
Within the next few years, the
best seating for Comhusker football
games may not be the skyboxes in
Instead, Nebraska alumni may
have the opportunity to become
members of the Nebraska Alumni
Association Champions Club.
The Nebraska Alumni
Association announced Tuesday it
- has signed an option to purchase the
privately owned Big Red Shop,
which is across the street from the
stadium on Stadium Drive.
Plans are contingent on parking
approval from the NU Board of
Regents and fulfilling a minimum
number of memberships.
If all goes according to plan, the
Big Red Shop will be tom down and
a new facility will be constructed in
its place, said Ed Paquette, executive
director of the Nebraska Alumni
The Champions Club is set to
accommodate 1,500 people and will
feature an open-air pavilion with
restrooms on the lower level and an
enclosed space to be used for meet
ings or conferences year-round on
the upper level, Paquette said.

A 25-year membership to the
club will cost $20,000, and the
Alumni Association is projecting an
additional $500 annual fee per mem
ber for maintenance costs, Paquette
Each member will be given 12
guest passes on home football game
days and be able to watch the game
via HuskerVision, as well as pre- and
post-game coverage, Paquette said.
The Alumni Association decided
to purchase the Big Red Shop
because the Wick Alumni Center is
not large enough to accommodate all
the alumni for home football games,
“Nebraska alumni love their
Husker football,” he said.
Paquette also said the Wick
Alumni Center has to turn away 20 to
25 weddings per year because of a
lack of space, another problem that
can be solved by the Champions
In order for the plan to come to
life, the Alumni Association must
sell 180 Champions Club member
ships by mid-July.
Paquette said 31 memberships
already have been committed.
Another perk of the club will be
added university parking, Paquette

owns about 50 parking spaces, and

used for Champions Club member
Because of this, the Alumni
Association also needs the approval
of the University of Nebraska Board
of Regents to lease the parking spots.
If plans work out, construction
will begin in early 2001, and the club
will be set to open for the fall 2001
football season, Paquette said.
The Big Red Shop will continue
business as usual for the 2000-01
school year, Paquette said.

despite its expensive price tag.
