Donors may request season tickets and season parking prior to the July 31, 2011 deadline.
How are seat locations determined?
While season ticket renewal rates remain high, season tickets become available in various areas of the Kohl Center each year. However, the majority of available seating is located in the 300 level of the Kohl Center. Requests for new season tickets, as well as requests for changes from current season ticket holders, are reviewed first based on annual giving level and then priority points within each annual giving level. Priority points are calculated using the Wisconsin Athletics Priority Point System.
Please note, each request is reviewed, but the volume of requests does not make personal consultation feasible. When applicable, seating decisions are based on the best judgment of the Athletics Department.
When will payment be due for season tickets?
Individuals will receive either an invoice or regret letter from the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office starting in late August. The invoice will explain the outcome of requests for season tickets and season parking. Payment for all items is due upon receipt of invoice. If applicable, regret letters will be sent to those whose requests the athletic department were unable to fill.
Please note requests may be filled in full or only a portion based upon availability. The athletic department may limit quantity of tickets based upon supply and demand. Contribution refunds will NOT be granted under any circumstance.
