Current Volleyball Season Ticket Holders

3 Key Points For Current Season Ticket Holders in Volleyball
  1. Badger Select is an optional benefit for current season ticket holders. Current season ticket holders who do not want to change their current season ticket location, add additional seats to their account, or purchase season memberships to Bucky’s Balcony do not need to log in to Badger Select. To order your current season ticket location, the same process as previous years applies, of purchasing your season tickets, season parking (if applicable) and making your contribution (if applicable) online beginning May 1st and by May 15th. Orders not received by May 15th will be considered late. Late orders are subject to seat relocation or ticket removal. Season tickets may not be available for purchase following the order deadline.

  2. After purchasing your season tickets, season parking (if applicable) and making your contribution (if applicable), you will automatically be assigned a personalized selection date and time during the Badger Select process, which runs June 24th – 28th, based on Badger Select rank: 2024 Annual Giving Level and Badger Select priority points as of December 31st, 2017 plus 2018–2024 priority points accrued from non-deductible donations, and years of purchase for non-donor season ticket holders. You then can choose to log in during that time, or any time after until the end of the process, to view available seats at the UW Field House. Badger Select Rank is first based on 2024 Annual Giving level, and then by Badger Select priority point total within each giving level as of December 31st, 2017 plus 2018–2024 priority points accrued from non-deductible donations.

  3. During the Badger Select process, as a current season ticket holder you have the ability to purchase additional seats, swap your current seats for other available seats, and purchase season memberships to Bucky’s Balcony.

    Please note that season ticket and season membership availability is not guaranteed during your personalized selection date and time during the Badger Select process.

Importance of Badger Select Rank

Your Badger Select rank will determine your priority in the Badger Select process. The higher your Badger Select rank, the earlier your selection date and time will be in Badger Select which may increase the pool of quality seats to choose from.

Badger Select Rank is based on 2024 Annual Giving Level and Badger Select priority points. Badger Select priority points include: points as of December 31st, 2017 plus 2018–2024 priority points accrued from non-deductible donations. Non-deductible donations include those associated with priority seating and Badger Select seating contributions.

For Badger Select Rank, 100% deductible donations made in 2018–2024 will NOT be allocated towards Badger Select priority points. 100% deductible gifts include those to sport specific funds, endowed scholarships, or capital projects. (Please note Badger Select rank is different from Donor Rank.)

Historical Season Ticket Data

Below, two factors are discussed which impact seat selection: ticket availability and donor rank. Also included are the season ticket seating results from the 2023 season for your review. It is recommended using last season's results only as a guide, as past results cannot predict future results.

Ticket Availability

Ticket availability is determined after the current season ticket-holder ticket sales process has completed (May 15th). The quantity and location of unsold tickets determines the inventory available for seat improvement as well as new / additional season ticket requests. Ticket availability for volleyball does fluctuate from season to season. However, as evidenced by the chart below, season ticket sales rates for volleyball are consistently strong.
