ZonaZoo is the official student section and student-ticketing program for University of Arizona Athletics. A ZonaZoo membership is your all access pass for all sporting events at the University of Arizona.


History of the Zoo

It all started with a t-shirt and a vision in 2002, ever since then it has continued to grow and has become the largest student section in the Pac-12. After officially being implemented in 2003, ZonaZoo’s membership has increased at an unprecedented rate and this newfound spirit has permeated throughout the University of Arizona campus, the Tucson community, and the state of Arizona. The ZonaZoo has established itself as a monstrous force that has forever changed school spirit by creating a tighter knit campus and community. Students and community members now immediately recognize the “Sea of Red” at basketball and football games and they know that it stands for a united body that is both diverse and eclectic.

This united body shares an interest in University of Arizona Athletics and at the same time it is composed of future scientists, doctors, lawyers, business leaders and public servants that are poised to lead our country in the future. Compared to similar universities with established spirit programs, the ZonaZoo has surpassed them in spirit and in attendance.

Bear Down Fridays

Bear Down Fridays take place every Friday evening before a home football game, and serve as the official pep rally for the game. University Boulevard closes from 4-7 while local businesses such as boutiques, clothing stores, restaurants, and other organizations host large scale sales, food and drink specials, and fun activities to engage with attendees under the guidance of the Marshall Foundation. The pep rally begins at 6 PM as the UA band, led by Director Chad Shoopman, plays music throughout the hour while guest speakers, including various coaches from Arizona Athletics and emcees entertain the crowd. Bear Down Fridays attract hundreds of students, parents, families, and community members, and garner much media attention from around the community. Bear Down Fridays during Family Weekend and Homecoming are typically the highest attended and most exciting Bear Down Fridays of the year. See you Friday nights!

Junior Cats

Apply to be a Senior Cat (collegiate mentor) and make a difference in the crucial transition period for potential Junior Cats (grade school students). The Junior Cats program focuses on stressing the importance in pursuing a higher education to grade school students by offering a well-rounded view of collegiate life through campus tours, athletic facilities tour, and educational information about preparing for college.

Road Trips

Every year, ZonaZoo takes 2 trips to cheer the Cats on while they're on the road!


Stop by the ZonaZoo tailgate 4 hours before each home game to grab some grub, dance to some music, and show off your Wildcat spirit! You’ll also be able have a front row seat for the football team’s Wildcat Walk! 

You can find us at the end of the Mall at University & Cherry. We hope to see you there!
