Patrons are reminded that the UW Athletic Department utilizes a lottery system for all on-sale dates. For any given on-sale, patrons wishing to participate in the lottery should arrive approximately 1 ½ to 1 hour prior to the start of the sale. For example, patrons should arrive between 7:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. for a sale that starts at 8:30 a.m.
In addition, patrons should be aware that approximately 15 to 30 minutes prior to the sale, the lottery line will be ended to allow time for the drawing and for re-organizing the line. For example, at some point between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m., the line will be ended for an 8:30 a.m. on-sale. Individuals arriving after the lottery line ends will need to wait until all the lottery participants have been serviced before purchasing tickets.
