Oregon State, Reser Stadium introducing fan cutouts for 2020 season originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
This year in sports is anything but normal.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, getting live sports back has been a whirlwind of an adventure. Some stadiums across the country are allowing fans in a limited capacity. Others, well, have a different approach.
It may look like there are people in the stands, but zoom in closer and notice that it’s just a cardboard cutout…
Beaver Nation! Now is your chance to have an official cutout of yourself at football games this fall.
The answer is yes - we are doing cutouts 😁— The Beavs (@BeaverAthletics) October 15, 2020
Keep yours after the season, and every cutout plants a tree to help The Beaver State recover from wildfires.

Cutouts are going for $30 for students, $40 for season ticket holders and $50 for the general public.
Fans will receive a photo of their cutout in the stadium and have the opportunity to pick it up when it is safe to do so. So yes, you can have your cutout when the season is done!
The Beavs have also partnered with One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization “on a mission to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees!”
Started in 2014, we have more than doubled the number of trees planted year over year. Fast-forward to today, we now work with awesome reforestations partners in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa who help us get trees in the ground to restore forests after fires and floods, create jobs, build communities, and protect habitat for biodiversity.
In 2019, we were able to get more trees in the ground than ever before - 4 million!

For each cutout purchased, one tree will be planted in the Beaver State to help recover from the sporadic wildfires this season.
The Oregon Ducks have offered a similar opportunity for Autzen Stadium.
Get yours today, Beaver Nation!
