Exact dates will be communicated in early January. BBF members wishing to select their season tickets for the 2014 inaugural season at Baylor Stadium will have the option to select online via the Ballena 3D website, in person at the BBF office or may instruct a BBF staff member to select on their behalf. Instructions on how to communicate your selection method will be provided in the January mailer when you receive your assigned selection time. Selection of seats during the BBF priority period will automatically renew the donors 2014-15 BBF membership at their 2013-14 level. In addition, when selecting seats, you will be required to pay for your 2014 season tickets cost in full or initiate a payment plan. Individuals whose BBF membership are not paid in full for the 2013-14 year by July 1, 2014, will not be mailed their 2014 season tickets until the account is made current. A Bear Foundation Premium Seat is defined as a seat inside Baylor Stadium with a seat option associated to it. The season ticket holder must have a Bear Foundation membership that is equal to or exceeds their seat option total created via these PREMIUM season tickets in Baylor Stadium or the Ferrell Center. Seat Option Minimums: Seat option prices are outlined within this brochure. A reminder that a BBF donation that meets or exceeds the seat option total for your desired seat location does not guarantee a seat in that respective area (i.e. a Donor wishing to purchase 2 seats in the Championship Section (106) would have a seat option minimum of $2,000, however, with only 480 seats being available, it is likely those seats will be exhausted during the selection process by BBF members at the Athletic Director Club ($9,000) and higher level). Availability of premium seats is based on priority ranking. Ticket Limits: All Bear Foundation members will be entitled to choose during their assigned selection time the same number of season tickets as they possess in 2013 at Floyd Casey Stadium. If a member wishes to purchase additional tickets, they may do so after all current season ticket holders have selected seats. Sitting in Groups: Any BBF members wishing to sit together will be able to do so. The traditional Bear Foundation policy for ranking individuals wishing to sit in groups will continue to be used. Those wishing to sit together will need to select during the time of the group's lowest ranked member (example: a Gold Bear ($1,500) member and a Bear Backer ($3,000) member wish to sit together. In this case, the Bear Backer member will need to wait till the assigned selection time of the Gold Bear member). The higher member will still be assigned their priority selection time based on their personal giving and will retain the option to not sit in the group and take the better selection time. Please notify the Bear Foundation office via Baylor_Stadium@ baylor.edu or 254-710-2582, if you do intend to sit with friends, so that we are aware of your potential decision to delay your selection time and so that we can schedule additional time for the lowest ranking time. A Bear Foundation Priority Seat is defined as any seat that is selected via the Bear Foundation Priority Selection process. Regardless if the seat is a Premium Seat (having a seat option) or a non-premium, due to the season ticket holder receiving priority selection because of their BBF donation in 2013-14, they must maintain at a minimum their 13-14 Bear Foundation giving level to ensure the ability to renew their respective seats in future years. The member will have received the opportunity to select their seats because of the priority they earned through the 13-14 Bear Foundation membership, thus the requirement to maintain that donation level in subsequent years. In either case, if a membership level is lowered or dropped the season ticket holder is subject to reassignment of their seats based on the upgrade process in the respective year in which their membership is lowered/dropped. Forfeited Priority Selection If a BBF member entitled to selection in the BBF priority period elects not to select tickets available to them during their assigned time, they may choose the right to forfeit their selection window and select in the non-BBF selection period, thus removing any future BBF contribution requirements in subsequent years. Benefit Changes Parking benefits are still being finalized for Baylor Stadium but at this time it is expected that all members who currently received parking benefits at current levels in the 2013 season will continue to receive parking benefits in 2014 (members at the $750 level and above). Priority on parking, tailgate and boat slips access will be based on Bear Foundation levels. Additional information will be shared at a later time on these opportunities. Due to limited space availability, it is not expected that there will be a pre-game area similar to the Bear Zone or the Galloway Suites for the 2014 season. We are actively working to secure space in the proposed Events Center located directly next to the stadium to create a similar hospitality area for our membership for the 2015 season. Seat options for the Ferrell Center and all other benefits are expected to remain the same for the 2014-15 BBF membership year.

As a reminder, Baylor Stadium Suite and Loge Box purchases do not count against a members respective ticket limits, thus the chart above includes those members selections, if any, outlined in the selection process guidelines. However, in some cases these donors will not select the full allotment they are entitled to. Tickets contractually obligated to corporate sponsors via Baylor IMG in premium areas are accounted for in the above totals. In addition, seats will be held in nearly all Baylor Stadium sections as advised by stadium architects in the case adjustments are made to the seating manifest in the final months of construction that may result in lost or obstructed seats. An estimate of the quantity of these seats that will be held and unavailable for selection have been accounted for in the current statistics above. Please note, until the lock-in date of November 22, data in this chart will continue to fluctuate. HOW THE Process Works 0 6 0 Read All The Material Thoroughly In This Brochure.
