| The Team|| |
TEAM TECH 100 is a select group of supporters dedicated to changing the landscape of Louisiana Tech Athletics.
| The Vision|
Tech 2020-Athletics provides the most aggressive strategic plan to elevate all sports at Louisiana Tech. The mission is clear:
1. Improve programs so they consistently compete for conference championships and post-season play, and
2. Develop and build brand equity for the athletic department that defines how our teams represent and how the administration serves our supporters.
| The Challenge|| |
We are underperforming in the three critical revenue streams that drive every athletic department: ticket sales, corporate sponsorships, and private donations. These three areas represent only 16 percent of an already modest athletics budget. This has severely limited our ability to invest in our programs, causing a continual cycle of poor performance in competition and low annual revenue needed for reinvestment.
The graphs below represent Tech’s standing in the WAC in overall budget and private donations and Tech’s current budget composition.
| The Solution|| |
A significant investment must be made to improve the competitive level of our sports and to develop an infrastructure which will significantly enhance our revenue streams. As with any re-engineering project, investments must be made before returns are realized.
| The Commitment|| |
A minimum investment of $25,000 per year for four years makes you a member of TEAM TECH 100, indicating your willingness to bridge the gap to an exciting future of Tech Athletics.
| The Promise || |
In addition to many exciting membership benefits, your participation mandates a promise from our department to be fiscally responsible and to invest in areas that will produce returns – financially and competitively!
