    Priority Point Spotlight #10: Priority Point Rank

    Did you know that ticket location at football and men's basketball games is assigned in order of priority point rank?

    Priority points are used to allocate priority seating at football and men's basketball games. At the Varsity Club, we frequently get asked how season tickets are assigned. In this edition of Priority Point Spotlight, we'll highlight priority point rank.

    The Indiana University Priority Point Policy was designed to ensure equitable consideration for the loyalty and financial support of the thousands of IU fans who wish to attend athletic events.

    Ticket holders earn priority points in a number of different ways, including continuous years as season ticket holders and contributions to the Varsity Club, capital campaigns and other areas within Indiana University.

    Points are awarded in two ways: accumulative and non-accumulative priority points. Accumulative points carry over from year to year. Non-accumulative points are awarded on an annual basis, but expire at the end of the year. See our priority point page for more detail on items classified as accumulative vs. non-accumulative.

    Point accumulation totals are tallied twice a year based on the renewal deadlines for football and men's basketball season tickets. These tallies are used to assign your seat location each year. For football, the deadline is typically set around March 5 each year. For basketball, the deadline is around June 30 of each year.

    If you would like to influence your seat location, you can earn more priority points prior to these deadlines. See our priority point page for methods and points earned for each method.

    You can also view our priority point rank charts below to see how Varsity Club and season ticket holders rank by priority points in relation to one another. The chart is a guide to evaluate your rank in relation to other Varsity Club donors.
