Over the years, one of the most important roles of the FSU Ticket Priority Policy is to achieve balance between the longevity of giving with current year giving. The purpose of the Ticket Priority Policy is to establish consistency, equity, and balance for donors and season ticket holders in both of those areas.
The FSU Ticket Priority Policy, established in 1979, is the loyalty-based system that provides priority to donors and season ticket holders for everything from game day parking to the ticket allocation and placement process for high-demand events.
Today, the Florida State Athletics Board approved changes to the Ticket Priority Policy effective December 1, 2017 to begin with the 2018 football season.
The primary adjustments include a simplified point calculation formula that places no limits on consecutive year points for Seminole Booster membership and season ticket purchases, the inclusion of lifetime booster donations, and the grouping of giving levels for the ticket and parking allocation process.
“We are always trying to increase incentives for new members to join, while continuing to reward longtime memberships,” said Seminole Boosters President and CEO Andy Miller. “We are excited by the loyalty of our boosters, and the future is very promising with so many relatively young people able to participate at generous levels. We feel that the adjustments in the policy will help the program moving forward.”
With the change, ticket and parking requests will be based on current year Booster membership levels, and the ticket allocation will be based on newly-established membership groups and total points within the groups. This method provides a consistent balance between prior year contributions and current year contributions.
“The purpose of the Ticket Priority Policy is to establish consistency and equity for those who support the program,” said FSU Vice President and Director of Athletics Stan Wilcox. “Through the years, we’ve found the most important part of the policy is balancing longevity of giving and current giving. We feel these adjustments better achieve that balance.”
Football ticket prices for the 2018 season will remain the same for season ticket holders who renew prior to January 31. Current year season ticket holders will enjoy the best pricing at all price points. All ticket prices will now include the processing and handling fee.
