Football Tickets

For every Family Weekend registration, you are eligible to purchase one football ticket, on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that your Family Weekend registration purchase does not include your football tickets, but simply makes you eligible to purchase a football ticket on a separate transaction. The Family Weekend 2022 ticket block will be in Sections SS-7 – SS-13 (South Upper Deck).

Student tickets for the football games are purchased and distributed online and are available on your student’s Action Card. If your student purchased a Full Package or Package B, they should already have a ticket in the student section for the football game. Please check with your student to see if they have a University of Louisiana Monroe football game ticket during Family Weekend. If your student does not have a ticket to the game and wants to sit with you in the stadium, you will need to register them for Family Weekend to make them eligible for a football ticket. This also applies if the student already has a ticket in a different section but wants to sit with you at the game. Learn more about student football ticketing.
