What is Stang Gang?
Stang Gang is the official student fan group of Cal Poly Athletics. The goal of Stang Gang is to support Cal Poly student-athletes by attending games, creating the best home field/court advantage for the Mustangs, and cheering on our teams to victory. Our motto comes directly from the Mustang Way: "When Mustangs support Mustangs, the Cal Poly community is strengthened."
Stang Gang members get access to exclusive perks, including premium seating and priority access to tickets for special games, including the UCSB soccer game. Members also have the opportunity to earn loyalty points by attending home games in order to receive great rewards from our sponsors.
How does it work?
The program is simple:
- Sign up today for just $10 and become a Stang Gang member for your entire time at Cal Poly!
- Get an official Stang Gang T-shirt!
- Swipe your Poly Card at the Stang Gang table at select Mustang Athletic events to earn points!
- Receive great rewards from sponsors when you reach certain point levels!
- Repeat steps 3-4 all year long!
Stang Gang members earn loyalty points by attending designated Cal Poly home games and swiping their Poly Card at the Stang Gang table. Members accumulate loyalty points all year long and receive rewards at each point level they reach. Below is the number of points you can earn for each event:
- 1 Point: Football, Men's Basketball, Baseball
- 2 Points: Men's Soccer, Women's Soccer, Volleyball, Women's Basketball, Wrestling, Softball
- 3 Points: Swimming & Diving, Tennis, Track & Field
*Additional bonus points may be available for special events
Loyalty points are not given out at every home game. Games during school breaks and other events may be excluded. Check the weekly Stang Gang email for information about which games you can earn points at.
Stang Gang members receive rewards when they earn enough loyalty points to reach a designated level. Loyalty points build all year long and are not cashed in when you reach a reward level. Rewards can be picked up at designated reward distribution events throughout the year.
