Join the Pride
Basketball season is in full swing and we invite students and their families to cheer on the Lions as the Men’s team take on USF and BYU, and Women’s team take on St. Mary’s and Pacific!
With conference season in full swing, it's time to pack Gersten Pavilion for our annual Family Week & LMU Day game! Lion Nation has been challenged to sell out Hank's House, virtually. Help us meet our goal! Purchase one, two, ten, twenty-five or more virtual seats as we look to sell out all 4,156 seats in Gersten. The initiative is designed to provide fans with the opportunity to help show their support for the Lions through the purchase of a virtual seat, row, or section. Fans who participate in the program will receive a variety of exclusive virtual experiences and prizes.
Virtual seats will be available until the Lions tip-off on February 20. Proceeds from the program will go to support a world-class experience for LMU's 400-plus student-athletes. Tickets purchased for this initiative may qualify as a charitable contribution. Please consult your tax advisor.Buy Your Seats Learn More
