How to Purchase Football Season Tickets

Information was released by the Athletic Department regarding how to buy tickets for the 2010 football season. This year, season tickets will cost students $218.

The process is not extremely challenging, but missing any step in the process would mean spending much more money to buy either season tickets or individual tickets to each game.

Step One: Ticketmaster Account

To buy student season tickets, you will need a Ticketmaster account. After you head to the Ticketmaster site, you will need to enter basic information about yourself. While you do not have to enter credit card information at this point, it is advisable, as it will save time later on in the process.

Step Two: Pre-registration

If you are an incoming freshman or incoming transfer student, you do not need to pre-register. However, for all other students, pre-registering is mandatory. If you do not pre-register, you won’t be allowed to participate in the process to get student season tickets.

Pre-registration starts on May 27 at 8 a.m. and ends on June 2 at 5 p.m. This time period applies to both undergraduates and graduates alike. This Ticketmaster site will have the pre-registration during this time period. Make sure to have your nine-digit student id number ready, as you will need it for both this step and the next.

Step Three: Buying the Tickets

There will be five different sale dates for the five different classes. The dates for purchasing the tickets will be from June 21-June 25. There are no official purchasing dates for each of the classes yet, but by going off of last year’s order, we think it will be:

  • Seniors (91.1 credits or higher) – Monday, June 21.
  • Juniors (59.1-91 credits) – Tuesday, June 22.
  • Sophomores (27.1-59 credits) – Wednesday, June 23.
  • Freshmen (27 credits or less) – Thursday, June 24.
  • Graduate students – Friday, June 25.

Final confirmation of the exact order will happen on May 20. Also on May 2o, the exact time on these dates that you can begin purchasing will be given out. Again, if it’s like last year, each class will start at 7 a.m., except freshmen, who will start at 8 p.m. All sales will be available at this Ticketmaster site.

Final Thoughts and Tips

As an extra word of advice, if you miss the very beginning time of your sale date, don’t worry! Last year, I woke up extremely late and was freaking out about not getting tickets. However, a very wise person told me to try anyway. It ended up that tickets were still available later during my available time slot. So stay calm, follow these guidelines, and get your tickets!
