Questions about ticket priority? Chat now with a Ticket Office Representative 

Collegiate athletics programs like Florida State depend upon private donations to help balance their athletic budget. Like many other programs that use ticket priority as an incentive for donations, FSU has established a ticket priority policy to allocate football and basketball tickets as fairly as possible.

Doak Campbell Stadium and the Tucker Center are divided into priority sections. Tickets in the priority sections are reserved for those fans that help fund the athletics budget by making tax-deductible, annual membership contributions.

The goal of the FSU Ticket Priority policy is to reward the loyalty of our long-time supporters while at the same time incentivizing new and increased giving while distributing season tickets equitably in terms of quantity and location.

Florida State Priority Policy Release

Florida State Priority Policy FAQ

The Florida State Priority Policy was established in 1979 to create benefits for Seminole fans wanting to help fund a nationally competitive athletics program and to provide an objective method for allocating highly-desired tickets and parking. The policy, which is administered by the FSU Athletics’ Board, rewards supporters who purchase season tickets and make private donations to Seminole Boosters, Inc., the fundraising arm of Florida State University Athletics.

Since athletics programs in Florida may receive no money from the State of Florida or from the University, operations must be funded with revenues earned or contributed. There are more than 17,000 Seminole Booster members who make annual tax-deductible contributions to provide Florida State Athletics with winning-edge funding for all 20 men’s and women’s sports

These Seminole Booster members purchase more than 40,000 season football tickets and enjoy ticket and parking priority.

Football Priority Policy

Minimum Contribution Requirement

The policy now sets a per-seat contribution requirement for each section. Seats on the West side of the stadium, which are in highest demand, have a higher per seat requirement than seats in equivalent sections on the East side of the stadium. Similarly, sections closest to the 50 yard line have a higher per-seat requirement than seats in sections farther from the 50 yard line. View the Doak Campbell seating chart for per seat requirements for each section of Doak Campbell Stadium.

Calculating per-seat requirement

A season ticketholder’s minimum contribution requirement will be determined by multiplying the number of seats purchased in a section(s) by the per-seat contribution requirement for that section.

Example: Bob and Mary have four seats in Section 30 with a minimum per-seat requirement of $325. Their 80% tax-deductible minimum contribution requirement for those West side seats would be $1300 (4 x $325) which is at the Tomahawk level ($1300 to $3249) level.
Bob and Mary could choose to increase to a Silver Chief ($3250), Golden Chief ($6500) or Platinum Chief ($13,000) and enjoy the benefits and points at one of those levels.

Equity example: Larry and Betty choose four seats right across the stadium from Bob and Mary in section 13 on the east side. That section has a $200 per-seat requirement so their contribution would need to be $800 for those four seats which is in the Warrior range of membership ($650 to $1299). Larry and Betty could enjoy Warrior benefits or choose to contribute at the Tomahawk ($1300) or higher level but they are not required to.

Points Determine Priority Seating Location (Updated)

Accumulated Priority Points are used to determine priority when renewing/relocating seats and when allocating seats among donors of the same level for away games, bowl games and post-season tournaments. Points are awarded based upon loyalty and giving including:

  • Preceding year ticket purchaser (2)
  • Continuous years as a season ticket holder (1 point per year up to 20 years)
  • Continuous years as a Seminole Booster (1 point per year up to 20 years)
  • Current annual fund gift to Seminole Boosters according to the Contribution Scale
  • Total paid contributions to Boosters for the previous 20 years according to the Contribution Scale. Includes paid annual membership, coaches clubs, capital campaign gifts (including campaign portion of the Dunlap Champions Club)
  • Faculty, staff or Varsity letter winner (2 point each)
  • Varsity Club Member (2 points)
  • FSU Alumni Association (2 points)
  • President’s Club Member (minimum $10,000) 4 points

Contribution Scale

$50-109 | 2 pts $1,000-1,299 | 10 pts
$110-249 | 4 pts $1,300-1,599 | 11 pts
$250-374 | 5 pts $1,600-1,899 | 12 pts
$375-499 | 6 pts $1,900-2,199 | 13 pts
$500-674 | 7 pts $2,200-2,499 | 14 pts
$675-849 | 8 pts $2,500-24,999 | Each $300 = +1 pt
$850-999 | 9 pts Each $1,000 over 24,999 | +1 pt

Football Parking Information

  • Parking lot permits are for the entire season. A map with travel directions and the location of the lot is on the back of the permit.
  • Cooking devices and tents must not interfere with neighbors, adjacent parking, or thoroughfare. The lot will be monitored and we reserve the right to terminate parking privileges for misconduct towards fellow boosters or parking personnel or misuse of the permit, or abuse during tailgating.
  • Permits must hang from your rear-view mirror as you approach the stadium and must be displayed the entire time you are in your designated lot. If the permit is not properly displayed, the vehicle may be towed.
  • Parking lots open five hours prior to kick off. There are exceptions during certain home games, and these will be announced ahead of time.
  • Lost permits, stolen permits, permits left at home or accidentally thrown away cannot be replaced.
  • Numbered Priority Lots: Your permit for a numbered priority lot gains access to a specific lot, within which you may select a space on a first-come first-serve basis. See chart below.
  • Assigned Spaces in Numbered Priority Lots: Your permit assigns both a priority lot and a reserved space number within that lot. (Golden Chiefs Lots: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
  • Parking assignments are as follows: Donors who renew at the same level are assigned the same lot as the previous year (Unless otherwise requested via e-mail or phone). New assignments (anyone changing membership levels) are based on spaces available in lots at that level.
  • Motorhome parking assignments will be posted by 5pm each Wednesday of a home game.
  • Vehicles over 20 feet in length will not be permitted to park in the regular Booster lots as they will not fit in the defined parking/tailgating areas.  Golden, Platinum and Legacy Chief members with an oversized vehicle will be directed to Lot A to park in designated grass spots that are adjacent to the paved, reserved area.  Warrior, Tomahawk, and Silver Chief members with an oversized vehicle will be directed to park in the Master Craftsman lot on Gaines Street.  A valid 2016 Seminole Booster parking permit must be presented when arriving at the lot entrance and must remain displayed in the rearview mirror for the entire time you are in the lot.  Parking in these lots is available on a first come, first served basis.
