CSU hoping to build up fan club

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado State University officials are working hard on plans to lure fans back to Hughes Stadium this fall. The university in Fort Collins last year recorded its lowest average attendance for home football games since 1993.

C-S-U athletic officials are coordinating with government and business leaders to create celebrations around each of the six home games. The "Game Day Fort Collins" plan includes pep rallies, banners and a campaign to get business employees to show spirit by wearing Rams gear and displaying Rams flags.

There also will be an interactive play area for children available before games at Hughes Stadium.

C-S-U has donated 30-thousand dollars toward the fan plan while the city's convention bureau kicked in 12-thousand dollars.
