Game Day Program

Student Government

Policy & Procedure
Applicability:

The Game Day Program is a component of Student Government that works with the Department of Athletics and Student Affairs to coordinate activities on the Florida Atlantic University Game Day. These activities have been created to further engage students in the FAU football experience, highlighting new opportunities for students in their own Owl Stadium. This program has been put in to place in conjunction with the donation of funds to the Stadium by FAU Student Government.


Program Detail:

The Game Day Program will include the following opportunities for students:



  1. Sideline Pass opportunity- Up to 10 day of game Sideline Passes will be distributed to students.

  2. Priority Level Club Seating Experience- 150 seats will be distributed in the Priority Level Club Seating area to students. Each student who wins may bring one fellow-student guest.

  3. Bus Transportation to game- for students on the Treasure Coast, Jupiter & Davie campuses to get to the game.


Procedure:

Selection of Student Winners of Priority Club Seats and Sideline Passes:

  1. Any currently registered FAU student will have the opportunity to register for a chance to win a Sideline Pass or a Priority Club ticket once per football season. If they win a Sideline Pass they will not be eligible to win a Priority Club ticket; if they win a Priority Club Seating Experience, they will not be eligible to win a Sideline Pass.

  2. Students will register for the opportunity to win these Game Day opportunities through MyFAU. After a student registers once, they will be entered into compete for the Priority Club ticket or sideline pass and stay in the competition until they win or the season ends.

  4. Once winners are selected and notified, they will have until 30 minutes before the start of game to pick up their ticket or sideline pass. After that time passes, if a student’s ticket is not picked up, a runner-up will receive the ticket or sideline pass.
