BASKETBALL SCHOLARSHIP SEATING

The minimum per-seat gift requirements for “scholarship seating” at Carilion Court at Cassell Coliseum are noted in the coliseum map key on page 4. Seating for season tickets in basketball will be based upon a donor’s priority points and making (at least) the minimum gift annually for “scholarship seat” locations. Perseat donations are tax deductible and are in addition to the 2017-18 season ticket cost. These minimum perseat gift amounts do not guarantee seating in the correlated sections; they are minimums needed to be eligible to select tickets in those sections based on availability. As a reminder, donors who purchased football season tickets and/or football parking may have already met the minimum annual gift requirement for basketball season ticket seat locations. No additional gifting may be necessary if the football gift requirement exceeds the minimum required for men’s basketball.

SCHOLARSHIP SEATING TICKET PRIORITY LIMIT

The number of season tickets a donor can purchase and/or select in priority locations for the 2017-18 season reseating has been increased depending on your annual giving level to the Hokie Scholarship Fund. Please see the benefits chart at hokieclub.com for details.

BALLENA SELECT-A-SEAT In August, all qualifying patrons who have ordered season tickets will be assigned a selection date and time that will allow them entrance into the Ballena Select-A-Seat system based on their Hokie Scholarship Fund (HSF) point priority ranking as of June 30th, 2017. As 2017 is a full re-seating year, all season ticket holders will be selecting their basketball seat(s) using Ballena’s online selection technology based on their HSF priority ranking. It will allow for real-time assignment of seat locations. Similar to previous years, basketball parking will be assigned to donors who purchase men’s basketball season tickets and assigned based on HSF priority and availability. Patrons who order season tickets will log into the system using their customer number and provided personal access code at their selection date and time. Once logged in, the number of seats that were ordered and any donation amount to the HSF will be loaded into the account. Available seats will display in green and unavailable seats will display red. Next, simply click on the green seat dots to select seat locations. The seats will then be added to the patron’s cart. After seating has been selected, each patron will be asked to confirm and finalize their selections. If the patron has selected seats in an area that would require an additional donation to the HSF, they will be redirected to hokieclub.donornetpac.com to complete their gift, which will in turn complete and confirm the selection process.

NEW SEAT PATRONS Patrons ordering tickets for the first time will log into the system using their customer number and provided personal access code during their selection date and time. Once logged in, it will be up to the patron to choose a seat location from any of the open seats.

TO ADD SEATS DURING SELECTION Patrons wishing to increase the number of season tickets they purchase, based on availability and HSF priority ticket limits, should contact the Athletics Ticket Office prior to their selection time.

SELECTION TIP ON STRANDING SINGLE SEATS In order to minimize unsellable single tickets, you will be prompted to reselect new seats or purchase the additional seat, if availability and priority limits allow, when making a selection that leaves a single seat by itself.
