Obtaining New Season Tickets
Seating in some of Nebraska's sport venues requires a minimum per seat annual contribution and ticket price. Our two soldout venues, Memorial Stadium and the Coliseum, require a contribution for any new seat. Premium seating for Memorial Stadium, the Devaney Center, the Coliseum, and Hawks Field at Haymarket Park also requires a per seat contribution that may be separate from the ticket price. Contributions made in order to obtain or determine the location of tickets for football, volleyball, baseball, and men's basketball can be made to a variety of clubs. Gifts given for this purpose assist the athletic department in providing scholarships to student-athletes as well as funding operations, capital improvements and other special projects. Club details... 

New season tickets are awarded based on three criteria: (1) The number of available seats, (2) Sustaining per seat annual contributions to the athletic department, and (3) Priority Points. The number of season tickets awarded each year and the annual per seat contribution needed to obtain tickets varies from year to year depending upon availability. The allocation of football season tickets to new contributors takes place after current season ticket holders are given the option to renew, which they must do before April. Therefore, contribution levels to obtain season tickets may vary from one year to the next depending on the number of seats that become available each year. Waitlists for new season tickets for football and volleyball need to be submitted to the Athletic Development office. Premium seating for football, basketball, volleyball, and baseball can be requested online or by calling Athletic Development at 472-2367 or 1-800-8 BIGRED.

When requesting new season tickets, you are required to list a pledge amount to be considered for tickets for football, volleyball, and prime seating for men's basketball and baseball. This donation pledge is not due until you have been notified that you have received season tickets. You are not required to pay your pledge amount if you are not allocated season tickets. You may make a contribution to increase your priority point standing, but even with a contribution there is no guarantee that you will immediately receive season tickets. All contributions are non-refundable. For the best chance of being considered for tickets for the upcoming season, please have your wait list form in six months prior to the start of the sport's season.

Renewing Season Tickets
Renewal of season tickets is annually offered to season ticket holders for the same seating held the previous year. Renewals are also conditioned upon a sustained annual contribution to the Athletic Department. This amount is based on the annual contribution established when the tickets were initially assigned, or the current required contributions level.  Season ticket renewal is a privilege that may be denied by the University of Nebraska Athletic Department at any time. 

Season Ticket Improvements
Season ticket improvements, including relocation of seats and/or obtaining additional seats, are allocated based on your annual giving per seat contribution and priority points. Please include written documentation of improvement requests on either your ticket renewal form or your annual contribution invoice or fill out the appropriate waitlist form. The deadline is April 1 for placing football improvement requests for the upcoming season. You must renew your season tickets before an improvement will be considered.

Requesting a season ticket improvement grants the Athletic Department permission to move your season tickets based upon the criteria given. If no information is provided we will use our best judgement in awarding an improvement. Season tickets marked for improvement will be released and utilized for other accounts requesting an improvement or for new season ticket requests.

Single-Game Tickets
Requests for any home or away single-game football tickets should be made on your season ticket invoice. Away game and additional home game confirmations are sent by mid to late June. Please note that no payments for single-game tickets will be accepted prior to receiving confirmation of tickets. All single game tickets will be awarded based on priority points. The allocation for away games in the Big Ten Conference is considerably smaller than the Big XII allocation, so please be aware that those accounts that have their away game requests fulfilled may have their requested quantity limited.

 *For all sports, other than football, away game tickets are only available
through the host institution.

Ticket Transfers
Season ticket holder privileges may be transferred to the spouse of a season ticket holder or to the surviving spouse in the event of death. Transfers to persons other than spouses or surviving spouses may be permitted to the son or daughter of the season ticket holder with the payment of the current required sustaining donation. Priority points and parking passes are non-transferable. Business to business transfers will require the payment of the current required sustaining donation. Ticket transfers are not allowable for faculty/staff tickets or transfers from an individual into a business account. For more information, please call the Athletic Development office: 472-2367 or 1-800-8 BIGRED.

Paying For Season and Single-Game Tickets

This convenient, safe and secure method of paying for your tickets also saves you time and may reduce handling fees. Payments may not be made over the phone for tickets. If a donation is tied to your tickets, donations may be made online via credit card or e-check, by phone via credit card, or through the mail via check. The Ticket Office and the Development Office may be reached by calling 1-800-8 BIGRED or calling 402-472-3111 for the Ticket Office or 402-472-2367 for the Development Office.
