Florida State has completed plans to implement a consistent annual fund-giving structure (to match the existing football structure) for men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, and soccer season tickets beginning with the 2023-24 athletic season.
This new structure comes after two years of analysis of peer institutions and the desire to increase our game-by-game participation from season ticket holders.
Currently, contributions required to purchase football tickets allow donors access to tickets to men’s basketball. In other words, a football contribution has afforded “umbrella” access extending to men’s basketball, while no donation policy exists for soccer, softball, baseball, or women’s basketball.
This adjustment adopts a donation requirement for all ticketed sports.

New Donation Model
The new per-seat model for season tickets will require a donation to Seminole Boosters with every season ticket purchase.
Phase I – Starting with the current 2023 annual fund membership, all season ticket holders will need to be active members with Seminole Boosters. The Annual Membership contribution will continue to serve as an “umbrella” donation for all season tickets. All Coaches Clubs giving for tickets will be removed and Annual Fund will determine all ticket priority.
Phase II – Starting in the 2024-25 season and the 2024 annual fund membership, per-seat giving will begin and will be separated by sport, removing the “umbrella” giving.
Per Seat Timelines
Priority Point Calculation Formula
Each account will now have two different priority point totals, one used for home ticket allocations (Home Points) and one used for donor recognition, parking and any non-home ticket allocations (Total Points). All Priority Point Categories will be calculated the same with the exception of Lifetime Booster Giving now being calculated with two separate totals.
Priority Point Categories
Total Point Calculation
Total consecutive years as a ticket holder – 5 pts per year (no limit)
Total consecutive years as a Booster member – 5 pts per year (no limit)
*Lifetime Booster giving – 1 pt per $100

Calculation of points will take place two times per year: Immediately following the priority deadline in March and November. The calculation of points at those times will determine:
March: Selection time for seating and parking at Doak and away game ticket allocations. November: Post-season football, men’s and women’s basketball and baseball ticket allocation.
