How do I purchase football tickets?
Click here to access a special link to purchase football tickets in the Family Weekend section through UCF Athletics (recommended browsers: Google Chrome or Safari Firefox; link does not work well with Internet Explorer). You’ll want to register for Family Weekend first, to receive the code in your confirmation email. Use that code on the athletics site when purchasing your tickets.
Can I sit with my student at the football game?
Your football tickets will have assigned seats. Your student does not need a football ticket (they use their student ID) to enter the game, however if you would like to guarantee you can sit together, a ticket would need to be purchased for your student to give them an assigned seat with you.

Click on “Schedule of Events” in the gold bar at the top of the page.
Where can I check-in?
