Questions for the Vets about season tickets

Submitted by MgoBlueprint on May 10th, 2015 at 2:24 PM

I know there was a thread the other day for the new season ticket holders, but I went back to it and there were some questions left unanswered. Hopefully there are some Big House vets that can answer some season ticket questions for some of us new season ticket holders.

I will get started with a few.

When do we get our seat assignments?

I know there are more than a few people that requested sections 21-25. What are the chances that those who made requests will get non endzone seats?

Do you get offered a few choices or do they just give you a seat or seats?


Also, I was looking at other schools season ticket sites, and I really like the virtual venue that other schools use. It seems like it makes the seat selection process easier.

I really like the virtual venue platform that other schools use. it seems like it makes the seat selection process alot easier. Do any of you think that michigan will use virtual venue or something similar in the near future?

This will be my 3rd year as a season ticketholder, and I did not receive a choice back my thought will be with this type of hype (Harbaugh!!!!) that you will probably be given seats and that will be it.

I don't want to pay more than $150 in seat license fees. So I know I have to be in the end zone. Gonna request what sections are considered end zone and whatever rows I feel are the best. That is my process.

They assigned my tickets. I emailed the ticket office asking when they would have the seat assignments and sent another email around the time they said and they provided me with the info. I did not make any requests when I first got them so unsure about that

are in Section 36 and I am in the top row (96) - at first I wasn't sold on being that high up but you really get to see everything all at once.  

Added bonus in the top row there is an empty row behind you for your stuff or for people to come visit.

Also on the really hot games you get the breeze from outside the stadium (and no one yelling at you "down in front")

Seat assignments late May/early June before ticket packs and general public sales begin.

You have a chance to be upgraded if you requested those seats (based on availability). You will be responsible for any upgraded PSD's. You will likely be slotted in the end zone. Everything is based on priority points as far as upgrades and sections and also when you applied.

You will not get a choice of seats.

Hope this helps.

My buddy and I both were awarded tickets this year. We requested to have our seats by each other, what are the chances of that being granted. Also does anyone know how we find out about our seat assignments? Is it via email? Thanks!

Is the priority is given to Priority Point totals.  Meaning even if you don't want to move to better class of seats but want to say be on the aisle, they will help with that.  You send money as a lubricant :)

Secondary but also related, is the number of years you've been a season ticket holder.

Lastly there must be enough turnover to make the move you desire.  Which I think there normally is a small amount of natural turnover, even in the best Michigan years.  People move, have kids, change jobs, try to go pro in spear-fishing, in general allocate money to something else, etc.

Just keep asking, things will happen incrementally.

I asked long ago after a couple seasons in row 7 behind the goalpost crossbar, to move up about 3 rows and it was granted.  Then I was relocated by expansion of the student section.  I asked to move closer to the aisle and it was granted.

I don't have a silly amount of priority points.  I am in the lowest tier.  However 22 years as a season ticket holder apparently does not hurt either...

Last year was my first year. I requested to be in end zone section, but in the corner, and between rows 30 and 60. I was granted all of that and reside in section 7 row 39.

Thanks for the feedback. So from what I've gathered, we get our seat assignments sometime between may 18th ( last day to renew,accept, or pay for season tickets is 5/15) and July 10 (single game sales general public). And it's extremely unlikely to get non endzone or corner endzone tickets as a first year season ticket holder unless you have a ton of priority points.

I am trying to purchase better season tickets and it appears you can do that by having someone transfer tickets to you that they no longer want and for you to pay a fee.  Does anyone know more information on this?  Also, is there a website dedicated to these transfers?  Thanks.
