Seating Process And Frequently Asked Questions

runoutOur first priority is to ensure that all season ticket holders affected by the renovation are presented with options for relocation. Our priority is to ensure that everyone has the right to retain their current seats. Aside from a small quantity of seats that will be affected by construction all will have the right to keep their current seats. There will be no forced relocation or reseating.

After we determine each season ticket holders’ status we will begin our relocation process with the available seating. This process will take several weeks to finish. We will process requests for relocation in the priority order described below.

As season ticket holders request modifications to their seats, we ask that they please keep in mind the historically high renewal rates for season tickets. We will do our best to accommodate requests, but it is important to temper expectations.

 

 


  1. Relocation for those displaced due to renovation
    Though we anticipate very few season ticket holders to be displaced due to their seats being removed as a result of construction, a handful will be affected. Reasons for such relocation center around our need for greater accessibility and ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) seating. Our first priority will be to present appropriate options to all those affected by any such occasion.
  2. Relocations to a lesser contribution level
    Our next relocation priority is to accommodate season ticket holders who request to be relocated to an area with a lesser per seat contribution. We value the long-term commitment made by our season ticket holders, and will work to relocate their seats to a giving area that more closely aligns with their preferred level of giving.
  3. Seat Improvements
    Once we have met requests for lesser giving levels we will process requests for improving seats to a more desired location. Priority for seat improvement will be based on a combination of lifetime giving to University of Dayton Athletics and the number of years as a season ticket holder only. Only season ticket holders who are paid in full or signed up for a payment plan for their 2017-18 season tickets will be considered for seat improvement.
  4. Accommodate requests for additional seats
    If available, the request for additional seats will be reviewed after we conclude the relocation process.

fansHOW WILL THIS AFFECT SEATING COSTS?
There will be a revised seating and ticket price structure, with per seat donations increasing beginning with this May’s annual billing cycle and being final upon project completion. Per seat donations will increase by 1/3 for the 2017-18 season, remain consistent at for the 2018-19 season, and see the final 2/3 of the price increase for the 2019-20 season (scheduled for full completion) through 2023-24.

Starting with the 2019-20 season per seat donations will be fixed for a period of five years. While lower arena season ticket holders have been paying a per seat donation since 1997, 300 level season ticket holders will begin paying a per seat donation in 2019, and 400 level season ticket holders will see a modest ticket price increase.

The seat and donation model is available at TransformUDArena.com; Ticket prices will increase periodically over time based on number of home games, opponents, and other associated factors involved with scheduling.

HOW MANY EXISTING SEATS DO YOU ANTICIPATE BEING IMPACTED BY THE RENOVATION?
Over 97 percent of the seats will remain unaffected by the renovation. All seats being affected by the renovation are occurring due to zoning, fire code regulations, or ADA requirements. There are no seats being adversely affected due to aesthetic or design decisions that are in the control of the University of Dayton.

WHY DO WE NEED THIS REVISED DONATION STRUCTURE?
It is a critical revenue stream for both our athletic operations and this project. This project is a significant upgrade for the fan experience and was necessary for the future of UD Arena and Dayton basketball. We understand that through philanthropy, corporate sponsorships, external partnerships, ticket revenue and university support, we need everyone to make this work.

cheerWILL EXISTING SEASON TICKET HOLDERS BE ABLE TO KEEP THEIR SAME SEATS? WILL EXISTING SEASON TICKET HOLDERS BE ABLE TO STILL SIT WITH THEIR FRIENDS AND FAMILY?
The overwhelming majority of season ticket holders will be able to stay in their current seats if that is what they choose. We understand that many of our fans are content with their current seat location and allotment, and have been for many years.

However, some season ticket holders will be displaced due to floor space adaptation, ADA seating additions, and concourse, aisle, and entrance revisions. We anticipate this to affect less than 400 of our more than 13,000 seats. Those affected by this change will have fair options presented to them for relocation and will be contacted personally by the ticket office.

CAN EXISTING SEASON TICKET HOLDER SEATS BE PASSED ON TO THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS OR FRIENDS?
Yes, our policy has always been, and will continue to be, to allow for our season ticket holders the ability to transfer their seats to immediate family and/or legitimate business partners.

HOW WILL EXISTING SEASON TICKET HOLDERS BE ABLE TO MOVE OR ADD SEATS?
The order of priority for each process (relocation, downgrade, upgrade, and seat addition) will be based on lifetime philanthropic contributions to athletics with years as a season ticket holder as a tiebreaker.

CAN EXISTING SEASON TICKET HOLDERS TRANSFER THEIR SEATS?
The University of Dayton remains committed to the many long-time fans that have patiently waited to improve their seats. For this reason, only transfers to immediate family and legitimate business partners are permitted. Please call the UD ProSource Ticket Office at (937) 229-4433 to discuss seat transfer options.

WHEN WILL EXISTING SEASON TICKET HOLDERS RECEIVE THEIR BILL?
Paper invoices were mailed out on May 9, 2017 or season ticket holders can view their invoice on My Flyer Account. Go to DaytonFlyers.com, then click on Tickets, then click on My Account.

There will be some changes to parking allocation and configuration for the 2019-20 season, and some modest changes before then based on construction and safety needs. We will communicate these changes in a timely and transparent fashion.

Parking demand will continue to exceed capacity. Currently, we have 500 season ticket holders who must park at an overflow lot near the University of Dayton Marriott. We have a policy of one pass for every four seats in order to help mitigate this issue, and that policy will continue.
