Payments for 2012 Football Season Books will begin on Monday, June 11, 2012 a 9:00 a.m. Please note that The Southern University Ticket Office has MOVED again. The office is now located at the F.G. Clark Activity Center (Service Entrance). Our telephone number is (225) 771-3171. Our office hours (for season book sales only) are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Just as last year, in an effort to allow you more time to pay for your season books, we will print your tickets in-house as opposed to sending to a printing company which takes about four weeks to process. Please note that if someone other than yourself will be paying for your season books, he/she will receive your books and will be asked to sign for the tickets. If you will be mailing in your payment, we will mail your season books to you. Please remember to indicate on the invoice if you wish to pay for Bayou Classic tickets with your season tickets. We cannot charge the additional amount unless you request it on the invoice.
Payment for Bayou Classic tickets will be accepted at the time of season book payment. Tickets are $40 for plaza/loge sideline and $30 for plaza/loge endzone. At this time, we are not able to assign seats to your account. Once the event is on the system, we will assign seats according to the seat location you purchased for the 2011 Bayou Classic. Please note that the seats will be on the opposite side this year. If you will be mailing your payment, please add the amount for Bayou Classic tickets to your total. Please remember that you will only be allowed to pay for the same number of Bayou Classic tickets as the number of season books purchased during the renewal period.
If you purchased parking in 2011, you will have an assignment on your invoice. If you are interested in reserved parking, there are spaces available in Lot I. If any other areas become available, we will sell them on a first come, first serve basis. There is no waiting list, so please check with us periodically for availability. Please note that parking passes will no longer be mailed. If you purchase a parking pass, the pass will be available for pick-up beginning approximately two weeks before the first home game. Please have your receipt when picking up your pass.
We would like to remind you that, as stated on each ticket, we are not responsible for lost or stolen tickets. However, if your season tickets are stolen (not lost) we will reprint your account once you provide a police report and a $25 reprint fee. If your parking pass is stolen (not lost) we will require a police report along with a replacement fee and the original cost of the pass. For example, if your pass was $50, you will be required to pay $100 to replace the pass. Please take extra precaution to keep your season tickets and/or parking passes secure.
If you make your payment during the month of June, you will receive a $15 discount for being an "Early Bird".
Methods of payment accepted include cash, money orders, certified or cashiers' checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Please note that due to University Policy, we are no longer able to accept personal checks. Payments are also accepted by mail (no telephone or fax payments accepted). If you decide to pay by mail, please be sure your payment reaches us by August 3, 2012. If your payment is not in our office (even if it is post-marked by this date), we cannot guarantee processing. Please mail payments to Southern University Ticket Office, PO Box 10065, Baton Rouge, LA 70813. Your entire account must be paid in full by the due date.
If you are a Southern University employee and will be paying by payroll deduction, please pick up a form at the Ticket Office and fill it out reflecting the exact total of your deduction. Once the form is completed, it must be signed at the Office of Human Resources before we can accept your payment. You will not be able to change the amount on your form once it is signed by the Director of Human Resources. Deductions can be taken out from June to November. If for some reason you resign from the university before all payments are collected, you will be responsible for paying the entire amount at the cashier's office. If you fail to pay the balance before leaving the university, it will be sent to a collection agency for immediate action.
This year we will offer a group discount for season books. If you purchase twenty (20) or more season books, you can get each ticket for as low as $11.25 each per game. Also new for this year, we will offer a referral program. If you refer five (5) or more people and we receive payment for the account by August 10, 2012, you will receive four tickets to the season opener and your name will be entered in a drawing to be invited into a suite for one of our home games.
The deadline for payment is Friday, August 10, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. Management reserves the right to delete any account not paid or received in our office by this date.
