The purpose of the Bengal Athletic Boosters is to provide financial support to the programs of the Idaho State University Athletic Department through membership and fundraising activities. Funds raised provide student-athlete scholarships.

Providing a positive collegiate experience for our student-athletes is just the beginning. Their lifelong pursuit of personal and professional growth begins at Idaho State University with the support of coaches, teammates and professors. Their accomplishments, on and off the field of competition, are made possible by Bengal Athletic Boosters members who give generously. Thank you for providing foundations that will last a lifetime.

For the first time, premium club seating including full food and beverage service and VIP parking will be available in the ICCU President’s Deck. Groups of 4 seats or 8 seats are available for purchase by BAB Members at the Player Level ($1,500) or above.

  • Groups of 4 seats are available at $5,000 for the 2022 Football Season
  • Groups of 8 seats are available at $10,000 for the 2022 Football Season
  • Presidents Deck Seating includes a full food and non-alcoholic beverage package at each game, VIP Parking, and all benefits afforded by the applicable BAB Membership Level

*The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in 2017 ended the ability to deduct 80 percent of Bengal Athletic Boosters (B.A.B) charitable contributions attached to the purchase of tickets. However, you do have the option to forego all B.A.B. benefits associated with your contribution in order to receive a tax deduction for your gift. Please let us know if you choose to deny these benefits on the gift forms, and we will make the necessary arrangements.

When Do I Pay?

You may pay your entire pledge up front or in monthly payments by check, cash or credit card. Payment deadlines for priority seating and parking apply:

  • Membership fees are due in full by the first Friday in August to receive your football season tickets and parking pass.
  • Membership fees are due in full by the first Friday in October to receive your men’s basketball season tickets.
