Virtual Stadium Sell Out 2021

115% of $25,000 goal
This campaign ended on October 23, 2021, but you can still make a gift to Marietta College by clicking here!

We are passionate about our Pioneers. When we couldn’t gather to cheer on our student-athletes in 2020, the Marietta community instead came together online, celebrating our teams by purchasing “virtual” tickets to show their support. Together we raised more than $25,000!

While we hope to fill Don Drumm Stadium in person this Homecoming, we still want to give fans across the world the opportunity to support our teams and cheer on the Pioneers. We again invite alumni, students, families, staff and fans to show their support and help us sell out a virtual Don Drumm Stadium, too, by purchasing tickets between September 24 and October 23. Every $5 increment will count as one ticket sold as we hope to fill all 5,000 virtual seats! 

Announcing our winners...

The competition was fierce, but our judges have returned with the final results, and we are proud to announce our champions:

Fans of Men's Rowing filled 1,049 seats in our virtual stadium, and earned a $1,000 prize for their team. Congratulations! In second place was Women's Lacrosse with 818 seats filled, followed by Women's Rowing with 773 seats.

It was neck-and-neck for a while, but Women's Lacrosse won the $1,000 prize for the most individual donors with 112. In second place was Men's Basketball with 46, who finished just ahead of Football with 45. Well done, all!

And finally, congratulations to Women's Soccer, whose savvy social media skills won the $1,000 prize for showing the most spirit!

Together we raised more than $28,000 for our teams! While we celebrate the victories of our champions, we know that the real winners are today's Pioneers and the hundreds of student-athletes who now benefit from your support. Thank you for your enthusiasm and your generosity, and Go Pios!

It's Standing Room Only!

Can you hear the roar of the (virtual) crowd?! Your Pioneer passion has filled all 5,000 seats in our online stadium! We're not closing the doors yet, though, and you still have until noon (Eastern) on Saturday, October 23 to grab your standing-room only ticket.

Don't forget, 100% of your gift goes to the team you designate, and all 23 sports are competing for $3,000 in additional prize money. You can help your favorite team win by spreading the word.

Thank you for your support, and Go, Pioneers!
