ATLANTA-With interest in Georgia State basketball at an all-time high, Georgia State marketing has announced its 10K Challenge, with a goal of having more than 10,000 students watch the Panthers play at home this season.

The goal is to garner support through a contract (“pledge”) system that challenges each student that signs up to attend a minimum of 10 home games to help reach the 10,000 goal and make the GSU Sports Arena one of the toughest places to play in college basketball.  Students will sign-up at various events from November 1, 2012 until the November 26, 2012 game against East Carolina, the last game to sign up and still attend 10 games.

Students can sign-up at the following events:

  • Tuesday/Thursday Plaza table (November 1-15)
  • Basketball – Panther Prowl (November 9)
  • Panther Nation at Atlantic Station (November 1)
  • All home basketball games leading up to November 26th (Outdoor table, Concourse Table)
  • Residence Life Night (November 26)
  • Final Football Game – Concourse Table and Tents (November 3)
  • Panther Mania Tailgate – Deb Robbe (November 4)
  • Remote set up at Dorms on Game Days leading up to November 26

The first 1000 students to sign-up will receive one of the following: a t-shirt, hoodie, sling bag, or be entered for a chance to win up to $10,000 throughout the season. If the group hits the goal of 10,000 attendees by Feb. 13, every member will be invited to a party to celebrate at the final home game of the season against Northeastern on Feb. 27.
