Ticketing

Priority Points
All Sooner Club members receive priority points for their contributions. Current year donations are awarded three (3) points per $100 contributed. A more detailed explanation of the Priority Point System can be found here.

OU/Texas Seating Priority
Donating to the Sooner Club is the best way to add priority points to your account and increase the possibility of qualifying for Red River Showdown tickets. Because tickets to the game are in such high demand, the Priority Point System is used to determine who qualifies for tickets to the OU-Texas game, as well as seating locations within the Cotton Bowl. Only OU season ticket holders are eligible to qualify for OU/Texas tickets. Tickets are allocated based on annual giving level with the Sooner Club and then by priority points within giving levels.

Parking

Football Priority Parking
Football season ticket holders donating at the Silver Sooner Circle level and above qualify to receive priority football parking. Priority parking location is allocated by priority points within annual giving levels. Parking in all game day lots is on a first-come, first-served basis. A football parking request form, where donors rank their preference for parking lots, is mailed to qualifying Sooner Club members each spring. Limit one (1) pass per four (4) season tickets with a maximum of three (3) passes per account.

Due to several significant campus construction projects, changes to parking lots available for donor parking during the 2015 football season are likely.  An updated map and list of available lots will be included on the request form sent to qualifying members in April.
