ADMISSION POLICY

The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department requires all patrons, regardless of age, to have a ticket for men’s basketball games. The Wisconsin Athletic Department will allow one lap child without charge when attending an event with a ticketed adult. To obtain a complimentary lap ticket, a parent or guardian can request a lap ticket at a Kohl Center entrance gate. The Athletic Department defines a lap child as any child less than 2 years of age. This child must be seated on the lap of the accompanying adult. If you want your infant to have his or her own seat, you must buy a ticket to the event. Car seats, baby carriers, and strollers are not allowed in UW Athletic Facilities.

ACCESSIBLE SEATS

A limited number of accessible seats may be available on a season ticket basis. Please make a notation on your season ticket application if you are interested in accessible season tickets, which are subject to availability.

Patrons needing to make accessible seating arrangements for individual games should contact the Athletic Ticket Office prior to game day, as seats are limited and subject to availability. Patrons may inquire about availability beginning October 27, 2015.

REFUNDS

Refunds or exchanges are only granted if an order is not filled. Acceptance of payment does not constitute final acceptance of your order. Refunds will not be made due to a game time or date change. The Athletic Department is pleased to recognize supporters who make contributions to its program in part by offering donors priority for various ticket, parking and special event benefits. Since such opportunities can vary each year, contributions are non-refundable.

REQUESTING SEAT IMPROVEMENT & ADDITIONAL SEASON TICKETS

Two of the most prevalent questions we receive from patrons are “How can I improve my seat location or add additional season tickets?” and “How does the season ticket seating process work?” The following information is designed to help answer those questions. Please note that you can always call the Athletic Development Office or Athletic Ticket Office with questions.

Below, we discuss the two factors which impact seat improvement requests: ticket availability and donor rank. We also have included the season ticket seating results from the 2014-15 season, for your review. We recommend using last season’s results only as a guide, as past results cannot predict future results. Finally, we describe the steps you need to take to submit your seat improvement or new season ticket request, and we outline the process used by the athletic department to review requests.

Ticket Availability

Ticket availability is determined after the current season ticket-holder ticket sales process has completed. The quantity and location of unsold tickets determines the inventory available for seat improvement as well as new/additional season ticket requests. Ticket availability for men’s basketball does fluctuate from season to season. However, as evidenced by the chart below, season ticket sales rates for men’s basketball are consistently strong.

season ticket retention percentages
  • Please keep in mind that the retention rates listed above include all Kohl Center seating areas. Retention rates of season tickets in 100 and 200 level sections typically approach 99%
season ticket inventory
  • The chart above demonstrates just how few season tickets, especially in the 100 and 200 level sections, become available for seat improvement as well as new/additional season ticket requests.

Donor Rank

In an effort to equitably serve Wisconsin Athletics donors, the allocation process to determine priority for tickets is based on each patron’s donor rank, which is comprised of two factors:

1st - Annual Giving Level
2nd – Priority Point Ranking Within Annual Giving Level

The table below, from 2014, shows the number of donors in each of the ten giving levels who made a seat improvement, additional season ticket or new season ticket request. Please note that the majority of requests, even at the top giving levels, could not be honored due to demand far exceeding supply.

 2014 Annual Giving Level  Number of Patrons Requesting Improvement or New/Additional Season Tickets
 Ambassador’s Circle ($50,000)  11
 Hall of Fame Club ($25,000)  8
 MVP Club ($15,000)  18
 Champion’s Club ($10,000)  39
 All-American Club ($5,000)  58
 Director’s Club ($2,500)  102
 Coach’s Club ($1,000)  141
 Captain’s Club ($500)  101
 Red & White ($250)  89
 Walk-On ($50)  128

2014 Season Ticket Seating Results

The table below shows the 2014 annual giving level and priority point thresholds needed for seat improvement or new season tickets in the most desirable seating areas. We recommend using last season’s results only as a guide, as past results cannot predict future results.

How Patrons Should Submit Seat Improvement & Additional Ticket Requests

  • If you wish to make a contribution to Wisconsin Athletics to enhance your chances of having your request filled, you must make the contribution by July 15, 2015. Please note that contributions are non-refundable and do not guarantee that a request can be filled
  • Requests for additional tickets are only available to season ticket-holders who have made a 2015 contribution of at least $50 to Wisconsin Athletics by July 15
  • Make your request for a seat improvement or for additional tickets when you order your current season tickets. Seat improvement and additional ticket requests can be made during the online order process or in writing on your season ticket application. Feel free to attach a letter to your season ticket application. Please note that requests are due by July 15, 2015
  • Please be specific with your seat improvement request. For example, if you need to be on an aisle, please indicate such information in your request. Very broad requests like “please improve seats” will only be filled, if seats are available and if the seat improvement is obvious
  • Please note that seat improvement requests are valid only for the current year, requests do not carry over from year to year
  • As you consider requests for either additional season tickets or seat improvement, please note the recommended minimum annual contributions for the opportunity to order seats in certain sections:
    Sections 107-109, 121-123, 207-209 and 221-223 – $300 each
    Sections 106, 110, 120, 124, 206, 210, 220 and 224 – $200 each
    Sections 101-105, 111-112, 118-119 and 125-128 – $100 each
    Sections 307-309 and 321-323 – $50 each

How the Athletic Department Processes Seat Improvement & Additional Ticket Requests

  • Requests are reviewed one at a time based on each patron’s donor rank as of July 15, 2015. Requests are filled based on availability at the time they are reviewed
  • Hundreds of requests are received each year. These requests are all personally reviewed by Athletic Department staff from early August through early September, however, the volume of requests may not always make personal consultation feasible
  • If you have not been personally consulted regarding your request, you will be sent an e-mail regarding the status of your request no later than September 8. The e-mail will include information on whether your request was filled or denied, as well as the results of the current year’s seating process. If you requested additional season tickets and your request was filled, you will also receive an invoice for the cost of the tickets which is due upon receipt
  • The Athletic Department reserves the right to limit patrons to a maximum of six (6) season tickets in seating areas which have significant demand (100 level, 200 level, 300 level side court, etc.)
  • Decisions are based on the best judgment of the Athletic Department. The Athletic Department reserves the right to change any seat assignment without prior notice, thus there are no guarantees
