Get sports tickets

Some people decide to come to UF solely because of the amazing sports teams here! Gainesville has been called (admittedly, by pretty biased sources!) "Titletown." The Gator Men's Basketball Team won the National Championship in 2005 and 2006. The football team won the National Championship in 2006. With this, there does not seem to be a better time than now to be a Florida Gator! Going to the games is a practically necessary college experience. Getting tickets to the games has proven to be a rather difficult task for some students. The key is knowing how, because relying on word-of-mouth can lead to disappointment, especially when the only people you know are freshmen!

Registration for football tickets takes place the spring/summer before the football season. UF students enter the phone-in lottery by calling the number (352) 384-3262 from when registration starts in early April through early June. For lottery purposes, students will be prioritized according to how many UF credit hours they have earned. Season tickets will be paid for in advance upon entering the lottery. For the 2008 football season, the price was $70 for UF students for all home games of the season. Students who do not win the lottery will receive a full refund. For those students, it is still possible to get tickets, but it will be on a game-to-game basis. Students can try to get unclaimed tickets online at 6 p.m. the Thursday before a game by visiting the Gator Ticket Office. UF students do not have to be registered for fall classes to enter the lottery. However, undergraduate students must be carrying at least 12 UF credit hours to pick up tickets in the fall. Remember to bring your ticket and Gator One id card to get into the game!

Students can register for tickets to the Men's Basketball games online by clicking here. By visiting this Web site, they will reserve a ticket to the game they wish to attend. There are different registration dates throughout the season and students can register for a single game or in a three to four game "cluster." Unlike obtaining football tickets, entry to the basketball games is free with a Gator One id card and students must carry only one UF credit hour to get in the game.
