Admission Requirements

Children under the age of 2 do not need a ticket if they are going to sit on an adult's lap. All other patrons must have a ticket for entry into all Virginia Athletics events.

Mailing of Tickets

Season tickets will be mailed approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to the start of the season. Single game tickets will be mailed no later than 7 days prior to the game.

Security Rules and Security Checks

Admission is subject to inspection and search for prohibited items. All persons entering the stadium will be subject to a visual search by stadium personnel before entering the gates. Event staff will also examine the contents of personal handbags. Guests will be asked to open their bags providing event staff the opportunity to observe the contents. If an item needs to be removed so the event staff member can see the remaining items in the bag, the guest will be asked to remove the item. The same procedure will be followed for items in a guest's pockets. The guest will be asked to remove the item so the staff member can observe the pocket's contents. If a guest is wearing a jacket, he/she will be asked to unzip the jacket and hold it open so that event staff can visually observe inside the jacket.

Prohibited items include but are not limited to:

  • Containers

  • Items that can be thrown such as balls or Frisbees
  • Strollers (except umbrella strollers)
  • Food

*Umbrellas are permitted in John Paul Jones Arena.

All bags are subject to inspection by stadium personnel. In order to expedite entrance into the stadium, it is recommended fans not bring bags to games and to arrive early at the stadium's gates. Gates open two hours before kickoff of each home football game. ?
