Football season ticketing for students has gone general admission and looks completely different from years past. In advance of Saturday’s season opener against Central Michigan, a crash course of how things will now be running is in order.
On game days, students are permitted to begin lining up at the southwest corner of Hoover Avenue and Greene Street at 7:00 a.m. See the map below:
For next week’s Notre Dame game, which will be played under the lights for just the second time in stadium history, the queuing area will open at 11:00 a.m. Camping out is not permitted to reserve a spot in line.
Students are released from the line when the gates open three hours before kickoff. They will proceed to Gate 10 of the Big House. After a security check, they will select whether to sit in the ‘H,’ ‘O,’ ‘K’ or ‘E’ section, which houses the rows closest to the field.
Section ‘H’ comprises sections 26 and 27, section ‘O’ is sections 28-30, section ‘K’ is 31 and 32 and ‘E’ is 33 and 34.
Wristbands will then be distributed according to the chosen section. Once the wristbands for these sections have been distributed, general admission tickets will be given out, which allow students to sit anywhere in their selection section from row 23 on back.
The Athletic Department recommends students arriving with those they want to sit with. Saving spots in the seating line or at the seats themselves is prohibited.
