TICKET PROCEDURES: GKids must be wearing the official 2013-14 t-shirt in order to pickup a general admission ticket to any regular season game (postseason is not included). Tickets can be picked up at the Ticket Booth located outside stadium. If the GKid does not have his/her 2013-14 t-shirt, they will not be eligible to receive the free ticket.
PLEASE NOTE: Per NCAA rules, anyone 9th grade and above cannot become a GKid and receive free admission.
With the free general admission ticket, parents who have reserved-seating (Basketball) tickets must sit with their GKid in general admission seats. Due to limited availability the ticket office is unable to seat GKids next to season ticket holders nor can they re-locate season ticket holders seats for games. However, if GKids hold a reserve ticket they can sit in those seats.
Game-day Ticket Booths are open one hour prior to game. At Harder Stadium located across from Curtice Gate and south side of stadium. At Thunderdome located on north side. At main entrance at softball and baseball.
