Seating at The Steve or How We Will Buy Football Tickets Now
2019 Football Season Ticket Pricing

It's not as bad as I expected it to be. The seating chart is a tad confusing. I need to call over to ODAF and see if I pay for one seat fee and end up having to drop down to a less expensive one to say on the West side if the difference will be refunded or if we have an option to have it credited to the other ODAF pot we have to give to.

RE: Seating at The Steve or How We Will Buy Football Tickets Now
So do you have to pay the seat membership for each ticket?
In other words if I buy two tickets in W217 am I paying $600 or $500?
Also isn't E202 a better seat than W218, but W218 is more expensive?

Yeah, the seat membership is for each seat.

You have to pay the seat fee for each seat each year.

While a seat in E202 may be a better seat from a field of play location you are going to have to contend with the sun in your face. That is why the west side has a higher seat fee.

I don't know man. The Steve fits with all our other named athletic facilities: The Ted, The Bud, The Mitch, The Hill.

Welp, sounds like I'm making a pilgrimage over to the East side then. I need to figure out where the Band is going to be.

It is sort of crazy to raise the overall ticket expense this much. We were having trouble filling the stadium the last couple of years. We are coming off of a terrible season and based on the upcoming schedules the next few years it doesn't look like it will be any better.

Football stadiums generally get the last name and Ballard has a better sound to it anyways.

The ticket prices are going up but they're disconnecting tickets from donations. After this year, donations won't be necessary to keep your seats. You just gotta keep paying those membership fees.

So, if you look at it like that, someone sitting on the 50 (that stops their donations next year), would spend less under this arrangement.

This will also open up tickets the average fan would never had a chance to get under the old arrangement.

I don't think the band is moving.

Very confused at splitting the students into 4 corners.

RE: Seating at The Steve or How We Will Buy Football Tickets Now
Looks like my seats will cost me another $100. It’s starting to get a bit expensive for six games, especially since I drive 4 hours each way. This may be the straw that breaks the camels back. I hope not, but knowing we will have a bad year, and yet another increase sucks. Especially when folks sell Their tickets for $20 online.

So are you saying we have to pay ODAF and the seat fee this year? I thought the seat fee replaced ODAF. If I have to pay both, I’m likely out. That’d be $300 increase.

We're proud to have you.

Just be sure to invest in a visored hat and some shades.

You don't have to but if you the read the article, the first seat selection will still be based on ODAF points. So it just depends how important your old section is to you. You may be able to get there by reducing your donation by $300 but it's not guaranteed.

You'll pay the ticket price (which did not go up this year) plus the seat fee each year. You can get away with making only one, smaller Because of You donation in the first year, but that will effect your priority points if you don't continue to pay. Eventually others will surpass you and you'll get bumped.

RE: Seating at The Steve or How We Will Buy Football Tickets Now
I ****think**** what's going on is that if you want football season tickets you don't have to pay ODAF. Everything else yes (but they might restructure the ODAF fees since football will no longer be part of the considerations).

Also, on the map note that it's students and visitors. So I would think that the Northeast section is going to be the students, and the rest of the corners are going to be visitors.

ODAF donations will become "Because of You Gifts" that will give you benefits such as parking. So you still must donate if you're going to tailgate in my view.

RE: Seating at The Steve or How We Will Buy Football Tickets Now
The band is moving to the endzone section adjacent to the East sideline (N123). The white sections are not just student seats, some of those sections are visiting team seats and others are seats that will not be sold as season tickets. We're showing all the seats that cannot be sold as season tickets in the same color (white). Student seating will be in the Northeast corner of the stadium, some on the sidelines and some in the endzone.
