WVU athletics cancels optional seat selection process for 2020


MORGANTOWN—Due to the recent developments related to COVID-19, the WVU Athletic Department has canceled the 2020 football online “Optional Seat Selection Process” previously scheduled for late May/early June for new and current WVU season tickets holders.
The ticket office did extend the football priority season ticket request deadline, however, from May 1st to June 1st, to help ease the strain that some families might face when juggling their finances due to the pandemic.
In previous years, Mountaineer Athletic Club (MAC) members were able to upgrade their seats using an interactive website during the Optional Seat Selection Process in mid-June. Each MAC member was assigned a 15-minute time slot based upon the amount of their donation to the university (as well as other factors) to view available seats and either purchase new tickets and/or move their existing seats.
Football season ticket holders looking to upgrade/move their seats are now required to complete a form located at wvusports.com/seatupgrade if they want to change their seating arrangements for the 2020 football season. The Mountaineer Ticket Office will then follow up with customers in mid-June to discuss the status of their requests. Account holders that do not complete the form will not receive follow-up instructions regarding upgrade/relocation opportunities.
If a customer had previously purchased and/or made a deposit towards new season ticket(s) without the location yet assigned to them, they will not need to complete the upgrade form. Those customers will be entered automatically into the upgrade/selection process with the Mountaineer Ticket Office at a later date.
Season tickets are priced at $399 for the Mountaineers’ seven-game home schedule, which includes matchups against Eastern Kentucky, Maryland, Kansas State, TCU, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Baylor.
However, the season ticket price does NOT include the cost of a mandatory donation, and the amount of the donation is relative to the section desired. Donations (per seat) are $425 for the Red Zone, $250 for the Gold Zone, $125 for the Orange Zone, and free for the Green Zone. Potential Touchdown Terrace and box seating customers would need to contact the WVU Ticket Office for further information about pricing and/or donation requirements.
