The Equity Seating Plan is based upon four primary features:
1) Seat Selection by Membership Rank
All available season ticket locations in the main bowl of Kenan Stadium will be available for personal selection by active Rams Club members with a season ticket purchase made by April 15. Your membership rank (determined by the Priority Point System) and giving level as of April 15 will determine your selection order in relation to other Rams Club members.
Note: If two or members want to select seats together, their selection will be based upon the lowest rank of the involved members.
Note: Seats in premium seating areas (Pope Box, Koury Boxes, Mezzanine, Blue Zone) or seats assigned based upon previously written contractual agreement are not subject to the selection process.
2) Parking Selection by Membership Rank
All available parking locations will be available for personal selection by active Rams Club members with a season ticket purchase made by April 15. Parking selection is available to all members who participate at the Big Ram giving level and higher. Your membership rank (determined by the Priority Point System) and giving level as of April 15 will determine your selection order in relation to other Rams Club members.
Note: Parking passes assigned under previously written contractual agreement are not subject to the selection process.
Note: One parking pass is available with a purchase of up to 5 season tickets. A second pass is available with the purchase of 6 to 9 season tickets. A third pass is available with the purchase of 10 or more tickets.
3) Number of Priority Tickets by Giving Level
Active members of The Rams Club with a season ticket purchase will personally select their own seats and parking as described in the first two features. A member may buy as many season tickets as he/she desires, but the number of tickets available for "priority" selection is determined by his/her giving level. Active members will be in Priority Group A or Priority Group B. Selection appointments will be filled with Group A members first, followed by Group B members. Descriptions of the two groups:
Priority Group A: Made up of members at the Rameses level and higher, sorted by rank. Tickets may be chosen "on priority" in the following increments:
|Annual Scholarship||16 tickets +|
|Endowed Scholarship||up to 15 tickets|
|Coaches Circle||up to 15 tickets|
|Super Ram||up to 11 tickets|
|Big Ram $1750||up to 7 tickets|
|up to 5 tickets|
|Rameses||up to 3 tickets|
Priority Group B: Made up of members at the Ram and Tar Heel levels, sorted by rank. Tickets may be chosen "on priority" in the following increments:
|up to 4 tickets|
|Tar Heel||up to 3 tickets|
Surplus Tickets: Members who have orders in surplus of their "priority" allowances indicated above will have these surplus tickets assigned after Groups A and B are assigned.
Note: Priority Groups A and B will be able to personally select their seat and parking locations for the qualified "priority" tickets. Any surplus tickets will be assigned automatically by staff on a best-available basis closest to their priority seat assignments.
4) Implementation in 2012 for Three Year Assignment
The 2012 implementation of the Equity Seating Plan gives members a year of experience under the new plan, and clearer knowledge of the membership rank needed to predictably choose each seat. The selections made in 2012 will be "locked in" through 2015 (the next selection process) assuming a member's giving level does not decrease in that timeframe. Rams Club members are encouraged to give thoughtful consideration to their membership level and rank for selections in 2012 - as the selections made in 2012 will affect seating for the next three seasons.
