What is the Ring of Fire?
The Ring of Fire is the official student supporter group of UIC basketball at the UIC Pavilion seated in Sec. 111.
The success of any Athletics Department is dependent upon its supporters. UIC plays at the highest level of collegiate athletics - Division I.
The strongest supporters of all UIC sports teams is known as the Ring of Fire - a boisterous group of students who enjoy cheering on the Flames all season long. These students can provide a memorable experience for all fans of the University of Illinois at Chicago. A loud student-section can help make the difference between a win or a loss.
All UIC students can join the Ring of Fire.
What's a Pre-Game Ring of Fire?
Prior to selected home men's basketball games at the UIC Pavilion, a literal Ring of Fire will be created in Parking Lot 1B across from the Pavilion. Fire Pits will surround a pre-game gathering area where food, fun, music, pyro show and giveaways will be offered. Join fellow students in this new tradition!
The Ring of Fire looks to accomplish the following goals:
- Increase student spirit on campus and at all Flames athletic events
- Create the most exciting and intimidating atmosphere inside the UIC Pavilion
- Provide an excellent opportunity to meet people through a shared interest in athletics

Ring of Fire Volunteers Needed
The Ring of Fire is in need of volunteers who are looking to spread their love of UIC Athletics. There are various events throughout the school year when the group needs volunteers who can help pass out flyers, schedule cards, and other promotional items. The positions are laid-back and fun; they involve talking to other students and informing them of upcoming events.
We are looking for motivated students who want to contribute to the success of UIC Athletics. This is a voluntary position, but it is very fun and rewarding. You will have the opportunity to meet influential people on campus, and this will definitely enhance your total college experience.
Lucky's and the US National Guard are the proud sponsor of the Ring of Fire! For more information, please contact UICRingOfFire@yahoo.com
