Northridge, CA (May 19, 2015) – CSUN Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Brandon E. Martin announced today that The Matadome, CSUN’s home for men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball, will add 800 new seats in time for the start of basketball season next year. Men’s basketball 2014-15 season ticket holders can renew their seats now, and new season tickets for men’s and women’s basketball will go on sale on Tuesday, June 30. Women’s basketball season tickets will be available for the first time in several seasons. For more information, visit www.gomatadors.com/seasontickets.
“In the past year, we’ve seen more and more fans at The Matadome for each home game. Our teams deserve the best home court advantage possible, and we’re excited that 800 additional CSUN fans will be able to pack The Matadome to cheer them on,” said Dr. Martin. “With our women’s basketball team winning the conference and playing in the NCAA Tournament for the past two years, our men’s basketball team playing in the Big West Tournament for back-to-back seasons and our nationally-ranked men’s and women’s volleyball teams, our fans are ready to cheer on the Matadors more than ever. We’re excited to let fans be a part of the action all season long through our basketball season ticket programs, one of the best sports values in Southern California.”
The additional Matadome seating will be added on the upper half of the south side of The Blacktop, across from the team benches. The new seats will be available at general admission prices and a general admission season ticket will be available for men’s and women’s basketball.
“The expansion of The Matadome is symbolic of the growth of CSUN Athletics and it allows us to incorporate more people into our program,” said CSUN Head Women’s Basketball Coach Jason Flowers. “Anytime you have more fans cheering for you, it increases home court advantage. Our student-athletes work all year long for the 14 or 15 home games they play in front of friends and family, so to have more fans in the stands adds to the overall experience for our players, fans and friends on campus. We’re excited to play hard for our fans all season long.”
“I’ve been here since I was a freshman, so heading into my senior year I’m extremely excited that we’ll have more seats in The Matadome. The basketball team works hard every day year-round, and it’ll be great for everyone to be able to see the results of the work we put in. We’re going to be a threat in our conference and it’s going to be a great year,” said senior men’s basketball player Landon Drew. “Adding more seats and more fans will make home court an advantage for us this season. My family is excited to come to my games next year, and hopefully all of campus will come too.”

In August of 2014, the CSUN Matadors unveiled a redesigned floor in The Matadome, dubbed The Blacktop, which was the first of many upgrades for CSUN Athletics competition venues across campus. The soccer, baseball and softball fields, water polo pool, track and tennis courts have all been updated in the past year as well and this spring, the Matadors celebrated the grand opening of their brand new Matador Sand Volleyball Facility.
