Tickets FAQ

 How does my season ticket holder priority work and how is it established?

For available tickets your priority over other season ticket members is established based on when the original season ticket(s) or deposit was placed. Your priority at minimum will be maintained as you continue to renew season tickets each year. An individual’s priority will increase as other accounts higher in priority would choose not to renew. Your priority will only be negated if ALL season tickets are dropped for any full year.
