HOUSTON -- The University of Houston Athletics Department announced its Season Ticket Transfer Policy for the Houston Football Stadium Wednesday.
As announced previously, the select-a-seat process will begin in April. Should season ticket holders who wish to transfer their 2014 purchases to another account, a policy has been established for doing so.
Houston has partnered with Ballena Technologies to provide an online seating system using a 3D model of the Houston Football Stadium. 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. The Season Ticket Transfer Policy will be an important consideration as 2014 season ticket holders select their seats.
Season Ticket Transfer Policy
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. Seats may not be transferred during the football season for which they were purchased.
To obtain UH Football season tickets through a transfer, I, the recipient of the transfer 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 can be renewed annually. If tickets are not renewed, the new ticket recipient loses first right of refusal for those seats.
4) The new ticket recipient is responsible for all financial obligations tied to each ticket transferred.
5) Tickets may ONLY be transferred ONCE during the Cougar Pride fiscal year.

One-Time Immediate Family Transfer Exception
On a one-time basis, transfer fees do not apply if season tickets are transferred directly to immediate family members. Immediate family includes the following: an individual's spouse, parents and grandparents, children and grandchildren, brothers and sisters, mother-in-law and father-in-law, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, daughters-in-law and sons-in-law. Half and step members are also included in immediate family.
Following the 2014 season, fans have the opportunity to add additional seats or to try a different seat location. As seats become available, options will be presented to individuals on the Cougar Pride Football Season Ticket Waiting List based on requests and the 2014 Seat Selection Priority Plan. This waiting list policy will remain in effect through the 2018 football season. Prior to the 2019 football season, Houston Athletics will fulfill requests on the waiting list via the Cougar Pride Priority Point System. To be placed on the waiting list, please contact Cougar Pride via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, and your request including number of desired tickets and the preferred location change.
