Had my meeting with the BU folks regarding Loge Boxes and Club seating. Figured I'd post the details so everyone can know what's going on. I'll address them separately.
There are 79 of them total. 65 of them will be in the 300s level of the stadium, centered from about the 15 yard line on one side to the 15 yard line on the other. 14 of them will be in the 200s level of the stadium, and will be between the 10 and 25 yd line on each side. There are some key differences in the amenities/structure between the two locations of Loge boxes, but the price is the same.
For the 65 boxes in the 300s level.....there will be alcohol. The box will have a refrigerator and TV, and BU will have a contractor that will stock the fridge with alcohol the night before if you choose to have alcohol. The alcohol option will NOT be available in the boxes on the 200s level, so this is a big perk of the 300 level boxes. However, the 300 level boxes have NO roof or covering.....they are completely open air.
For the 14 boxes in the 200s level......there will be no alcohol, and they're still deciding whether there will be a fridge or not. They will still have the TV. These boxes however are "under roof" because their is a level of seating (the 3rd level) directly above them. So they're open air, but with a hard roof above your head. Another perk for these is that they are on the same level of the club area, so it's easy to access it. All boxes have access to the club obviously, these are just right there close instead of a level up.
All loge boxes will have four movable seats....two shorter ones in the front and two taller ones in the back. All loge boxes will also have in-seat food delivery (a meal for each game is part of the cost of the box) and free soft drinks and popcorn.
The cost is broken down as follows: . . . there is a one time "campaign donation" required, which is a minimum of $40,000. Then there is the cost of the box, which is $12,000 per year, and that is payable to BBF and includes your BBF contribution AND ticket price AND food allotment. The $40,000 (or more) campaign donation can be spread out over 4 years. There will be a ten percent deposit/down payment on that donation required at the time you reserve your box (the official launch is the 2nd week of February). For parking, it will be reserved according to the donor, not the box. So whoever the name on the box is will get the reserved spot. The amount of the campaign donation will be used to determine priority of box selection. For people who are tied it will go by BBF priority.
These will be the seats in the 200 level on the west side. They aren't sure exactly how many there will be, but it won't be the ENTIRE west side 200 level (most likely between the 20 yard lines). These seats are situated right next to the indoor Club area (it will be at the top of the 200 level, centered to the field) and they will be wider, padded seats with more leg room. There won't be in-seat service, but the Club is right there. These seats will include free drinks and popcorn, but not meal service like the boxes (obviously you can still buy meals in the club). The biggest thing in flux about the Club seats is whether there will be a REQUIRED campaign donation or not. They are throwing around a number of $5,000. Whether or not it's required remains to be seen, but if not, then people who DO make the donation will get first selection of seats before anyone else. The required BBF donation for this "seat option" will be $1500 per seat, and that doesn't include the ticket price ($275 per seat).
There are many more details if anyone has questions.
great info- thank you very much!
Not sure I agree with the majority of the loge boxes not being covered. I definitely don't agree with trade off seemingly being covered/closer to field or alcohol in box.
Any more info on what the club itself will be like? Alcohol served, etc.?
Thanks for the info Bearassnekkid. Any idea if there will be any renderings of the suites released along with the info in Feb?

So if they don't have a campaign donation for the club seats, you would be looking at a minimum of about $3600 to the foundation for two football tickets, does that sound right?
Will there be an announcement on this for interested parties or will it be a one-on-one outreach program? I haven't heard anything from Baylor on this and wonder if they are missing out on folks, making assumptions about folks that aren't accurate.
Yes, they are missing out.
