Florida announces how student tickets will be disbursed this season
Florida became the latest SEC school to announce how its student ticket system would work this season given the limited capacity at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Students will be given 2,000 of the 17,000 allotted seats at every home game this year, per the University Athletic Association, The Alligator reported. Students who’ve won the lottery will be removed from it for subsequent home games. UF sold 16,500 student tickets last season.
Priority in the lottery will be based on academic standing and whether students have previously been season ticket holders. Seniors will receive four entries, juniors three, sophomores two and freshmen one. Graduate and professional students will receive two entries as well. For every year a student-owned season tickets in the past, they receive an additional entry.
Florida previously announced priority for the non-student tickets will be given to those who have donated the most money. The number of tickets available range from four to 16 tickets per game and is based on one of nine categories.
No guest tickets will be available this year, but winning students will receive two tickets — one for themselves and an additional student. Both students must present a valid UF ID to enter the stadium. Students will also be expected to follow “physically gameday protocol,” meaning that they must wear a mask and social distance.
Florida-Georgia student ticket information will be announced later.
