HOUSTON - With the final rankings for the 2014 Houston Football Seat Selection process and Group Seating Policy announced last week, the University of Houston Athletics Department announced its Transfer Policy for the Houston Football Stadium Wednesday.
Members of Cougar Pride, Houston Football season ticket holders and fans who placed 2014 season ticket deposits will begin selecting their new seats utilizing an online 3D model of the stadium beginning in April.
Houston has partnered with Ballena Technologies to provide an online seating system using a 3D model of the Houston Football Stadium. Used by a number of professional and collegiate organizations, Ballena Technologies’ system will allow users to virtually enter the stadium to compare views and select available seats. The online 3D stadium model will be available to view on a trial basis for a two-week period leading up to the beginning of the Select-a-Seat process.
At the conclusion of the 2014 football season, UH Football season ticket holders may transfer any number of their football season ticket ownership to other individuals for a fee depending on the location of the seats. The transferee must additionally meet all minimum Cougar Pride seat requirements based on the posted current year seat donation minimums. Seats may not be transferred within the current football season that they were purchased. To transfer seats, more information and questions, please visit the Cougar Pride section of www.UHCougars.com or call 713-743-GOUH (4684).
To obtain UH Football season tickets through a transfer, I agree and understand that:
1) I am 18 years or older at the time of transfer.
2) A fee must be paid in its entirety at the time of the ticket transfer.
3) The season tickets must be renewed each year at the then current price. If tickets are not renewed, account holder loses first right of renewal for those seats.
4) The new ticket recipient is responsible for all financial obligations tied to each ticket transferred.
