Utah Athletics, the Downtown Alliance, the Mayor's Office, the Utah Sports Commission, EDCUtah, and Visit Salt Lake are joining forces to create The Red Movement. The Red Movement is designed to encourage community involvement from local businesses, fans and families in a variety of different events. The Red Movement will create a stronger sense of community pride, a college town feel and showcase Salt Lake City to our guests from the west.
It's time to unite Salt Lake City, the "Home of the Utes" as we begin competing with some of the greatest cities and Universities in the western United States. Show your Utah Pride by joining The Red Movement.

The Paint The Town Red contest is designed for local businesses to participate in turning Downtown Salt Lake City into the "Home of the Utes". Every fall, during the Utah football season, downtown businesses are invited to join in the Paint the Town Red contest by decorating their business or storefront in Ute graphics and décor for the duration of the football season. Winners receive cash prizes, Ute merchandise and game tickets. This contest gives downtown businesses the opportunity to show support for the U and offers another great incentive for Ute fans to patronize their business in support of the U.
