Celebrate Credit Union 1 Arena on Saturday

Dear Faculty and Staff,

This weekend will be a very special one for our entire University family. Earlier this month Credit Union 1 secured the naming rights to the UIC Pavilion, pending approval of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees. The company has made a commitment of more than $9 million over 15 years. In addition to the naming rights, Credit Union 1 will be giving $750,000 toward scholarships at the University.

We will commemorate this significant moment in UIC history this weekend, and Athletics invites you and your family to celebrate with us. We have a full day of basketball at Credit Union 1 Arena on Saturday, December 1, beginning at 11 a.m., when our women’s team hosts Miami (Ohio). Later, the men’s squad welcomes crosstown rival Loyola at 3:12 p.m. for the first visit by a men’s basketball Final Four team to our campus since 2012. This is a unique chance for us to show our city and the world what we are all about.

UIC Faculty and Staff can purchase tickets for 50% off by using offer code “STAFF10” at bit.ly/UICvsLoyola. The ticket will be honored for both basketball games.

And if you’re worried about how to fill the time in between games? Don’t be because there will be a FREE tailgate with food and drink in the parking lot across the street at the corner of Racine and Harrison from 1-2:30 p.m.

Please join Athletics and come out to Credit Union 1 Arena on Saturday to cheer on your Flames. Let’s show our collective appreciation to our partners at Credit Union 1 for their reinforced pledge to this institution and it’s sustained success.

Fire Up Flames,

Garrett Klassy
Director of Athletics
