Priority Points

The UMAA Foundation utilizes a priority point system to acknowledge those who support Ole Miss Athletics. Priority points are accumulated through the following: • One point for every $100 donated to the UMAA Foundation. • One point for every season ticket (up to 10 per year) since 1996 for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball.

Allocation Process

The allocation process is arranged by donor club level first and then by priority points within each donor level. Allocations for each club level begin with the donor who has the most priority points, and continue until all donors within that level have been allocated seats. For information on the football donor club levels, please refer to the Football Annual Giving Levels/Benefits Chart.

Group Seating

If you are requesting to sit with a specific group of people with multiple donor accounts, remember that the entire group will be allocated at the lowest individual level of giving within the group.

How To: Renew Season Tickets

• Retain your current season ticket location by making the required donation and season ticket payment by the deadline, April 30, 2011. • Season Ticket Applications are mailed separately from the Athletic Ticket Office.

Purchase New or Additional Season Tickets

• If you are trying to obtain new or additional season tickets, we strongly recommend that you contribute more than the minimum donation amount for the section you desire. • Donors who are renewing the same seating will be auto allocated first, as long as the required donation and tickets have been ordered prior to the deadline. It is not possible to bump a renewing donor out of his or her seats. • There is no way to know exactly what donation amount is needed to obtain a specific location. All new seating is dependent upon what seats are not renewed and where the donor’s priority ranks them in the allocation list. • Ticket orders and annual donations for new season ticket holders need to be made by the April 30 deadline to receive priority.

Relocate Season Tickets

As a valued UMAA Foundation donor, you can make specific requests to have your season tickets relocated in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. • All seating requests must be made in writing to the UMAA Foundation or the Athletics Ticket Office. • Make the request on your donation or ticket renewal form, or in the comments box if you renew online. Please be specific in your seating request. • An increase in your contribution alone DOES NOT signify a request to move. • There are no guarantees for any seating requests. All requests are filled based on availability and priority.
