Season Tickets

Prices are for single games and doubleheaders.  UMW faculty and staff will be given center reserved section tickets with their EagleOne card.  UMW player passes (maximum 2) may also be used for the center reserved section.  Student, general admission, and pep band seating will be in the end sections opposite the team benches.  Visitors will sit in general admission on the team bench side.

All fans will enter through the ticket booth entrance.  UMW faculty, staff, and students will check in to the right.  All others will purchase tickets at the ticket booth to the left.  Ushers and staff will be present throughout the facility to assist spectators.

“Initiating a ticket policy for home basketball games is a natural progression for UMW Athletics.  It brings us in line with our peers and other areas of campus, as well as virtually every high school in the region.  It places an appropriate value on our product and our state-of-the-art venue.  Finally, it will enable us to generate some much-needed new revenue, which will directly support our student-athletes.  We thank you for your patience, cooperation and support of UMW Athletics.  I’ll see you at the games!”   UMW Director of Athletics Ken Tyler
