Inside the Panther Athletic Club: Football Season Ticket Renewal Questions

On the first Wednesday of every month, a member of the Panther Athletic Club staff will give a behind-the-scenes look at what’s going on around its area and the department. Over the course of every month, each department will be featured at least once. Coming Monday: Ticketing

There are many changes taking place regarding Panther Athletic Club and football season ticket renewals.  Please see the below information and call 404-413-4126 or email pac@gsu.edu for questions regarding the renewal process.

Why should I become a member of the Panther Athletic Club?

Your financial support through the Panther Athletic Club offsets the annual $5.7 million cost of student-athlete scholarships at Georgia State University.  Review the Panther Athletic Club membership guide to learn how your gift directly impacts the lives of student-athletes and visit www.PantherAthleticClub.com regarding membership benefits.

 Why does my Panther Athletic Club renewal ask for the same amount as last year? 

Your gift supports student-athlete scholarships.  If you reduce your support through the Panther Athletic Club Scholarship Fund, there will be reduced scholarship support for Georgia State student-athletes.  We invite you to continue or increase your scholarship support of Georgia State student-athletes.

What are the changes in the 2015 Football Season Tickets renewals?

There will only be two seating options for season ticket holders (see enclosed seating chart for clarification).

  1. Scholarship Seating (Reserved Seats) – reserved seats will only exist in Sections 114, 115, 116, and 117. To purchase season tickets in these sections, there is a required Panther Athletic Club Scholarship Fund contribution of at least $100
  2. General Admission Seating (Non-reserved Seats) – all other sections outside of Scholarship Seating are General Admission with no assigned seat

Will the prices for season tickets be reduced?

Yes!  Prices will be reduced in order to get more fans behind the Panther bench.  See the seating pricing below:

  1. Scholarship Seating – $100 per season ticket + Panther Athletic Club Scholarship Fund contribution
    1. Minimum $100 Panther Athletic Club Scholarship Fund contribution required per account
    2. Example: 4 Scholarship Seating Season Tickets – Panther Athletic Scholarship Fund contribution ($100 minimum) + 4 season tickets ($400) = $500
  2. General Admission Seating – $50 per season ticket

Upgrading Season Tickets moving into Scholarship Seating

If your seats last year were not located in Sections 114-117, you may request to upgrade your seats to Scholarship Seating.  Exact seat locations will be assigned to Panther Athletic Club members based upon your Priority Points after the renewal deadline on May 1st (see p. 8 of the Panther Athletic Club brochure).

Can I upgrade my seats if they are inside of the Scholarship Seating sections?

Yes! Upgrading Season Tickets within Scholarship Seating

If your seats last year were located within Sections 114-117, you may request to change your seat location.  Exact seat locations will be assigned to Panther Athletic Club members based upon your Priority Points (see p. 8 of the Panther Athletic Club brochure) after the renewal deadline on May 1st.
