I want my season tickets to be in a better location. How do I upgrade my seats? All Duke Club members are welcome to request different seating during the preseason renewal process. If seats are available, requests will be granted in order of Priority Points. Some locations require a certain Duke Club giving level (i.e. chairback tickets require an annual Duke Club gift of at least $1,500). In the event of ticket reseating, all Duke Club members are welcome to request seats, which will then be allocated based on Priority Points.

Duke Club members have the opportunity to gain more Priority Points by returning unused tickets and parking passes to the Duke Club at least one week prior to games. Refer to the Priority Points section (page 15) to see how Priority Points are allocated in return for unused tickets and parking passes. Season ticket holders are encouraged to re-sell their unused tickets using Madison Marketplace. This ensures other JMU fans may attend the game. Check JMUSports.com for details on Madison Marketplace.

Football Priority Parking

Men’s Basketball Priority Parking

I make gifts to other areas in the university. Do I receive athletic benefits for those gifts? Contributions to other areas of JMU do not earn Priority Points or other benefits involving athletics. Priority Points are earned by donors who make a gift to the athletic department. Duke Club benefits are earned exclusively by donors who provide gifts to the Duke Club’s general fund.

The Graduate Duke Club is a program within the Duke Club, designed for JMU alumni who have graduated within the last four years. This program is a great way to continue your support of JMU Athletics upon graduation. Your gift to the Duke Club will receive double the credit toward your Duke Club benefits. For example: any Graduate Duke Club gift of $250 is eligible for the Silver Level ($500) of benefits. Therefore, benefits such as hospitality, premium seating ,and parking, will only require half of the normal donation amount. In addition, the Graduate Duke Club is a great opportunity to network with other JMU alumni through regional Duke Club chapters. When you join the Graduate Duke Club, you will receive information about events in your area where you can meet other members of the JMU Nation.
