Football Tickets

For every Family Weekend package purchased, you are eligible to purchase one football ticket, on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that your Family Weekend registration purchase does not include your football tickets, but simply makes you eligible to purchase a football ticket on a separate transaction at a discounted price. You will receive a specialized link in your confirmation email after purchasing your Family Weekend package that will take you to the Razorback Ticket Office. 

NOTE: If you want your student to sit with you at the football game, you may use your specialized link to purchase their football ticket when you purchase your own through the Razorback Ticket Office. That is the only way to ensure that they will be seated with you.
