GUEST FOOTBALL TICKETS
Guest football tickets are $10 each, with a handling charge for the order of $6. Guest football tickets can be purchased via the Football Ticket Office using Promo Code ALUMNIBAND (all caps). You will be directed to the actual page to order tickets, see the UMASS logo and click on that. Seats will be assigned by the Football Ticket Office at a later date and will be sent to you via “print-at-home” at that time.

Guest football tickets will be located as close as possible to the Marching Chiefs Alumni block (Section 118).

If you would like your guests to sit by particular people, we recommend that you coordinate to have one person purchase your guest football tickets. If you have already purchased your guest football tickets, please call the Ticket Office at 850-644-1830, and see if they are able to coordinate your seats. We apologize for any inconvenience.

All participating Marching Chiefs Alumni are required to wear the official MCA polo shirt for entry into the stadium as part of the Marching Chiefs Alumni block. Per the FSU Athletics Department, if you do not have the approved uniform, you may be denied access to the stadium unless you have a valid game ticket. You will not be able to sit with the MCA block nor be allowed access to the field. No exceptions.

CLEAR BAG POLICY
Under the FSU Clear Bag Policy, each person is allowed one clear bag (plus clutch or small purse) to bring into FSU home athletic events. This policy applies to everyone entering the stadium, including those marching. You will not be allowed into the stadium with a non-clear bag. Please consult the policy (linked above) for rules regarding the size of allowed clear bags, allowed items, prohibited items, and other rules pertaining to the policy.

PARKING
Please review the following FSU Gameday Parking Information. Many parking lots and garages on FSU's campus are reserved for Seminole Boosters parking on Gamedays. Given the uncertainty of parking availability on Gameday, we suggest giving yourself additional time to find parking and walk to Chiefs field for rehearsal.

We highly advise that you DO NOT ignore any "No Parking" signs, park in any lots designated as Seminole Booster lots, or park on any grass near Chiefs Field. You will be towed.

There are many organizations and businesses around campus that sell parking on game day. Prices vary and are located on both sides of campus. Please consider carpooling, using a taxi, or using a ride share service (such as Uber or Lyft) to get to campus for morning rehearsal. 

MUSIC
Sheet music will be available to print at a later date.

For any additional questions, please email the FSUMCA at [email protected].
