POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
An historic stadium that sits in the heart of the city, Arizona Stadium stands as a testament to the history and continuing tradition of Arizona football. Built in 1928 with only 7,000 seats located on the west side between the end zones, the stadium has grown into a 56,000+ seat facility that combines old style charm with modern conveniences. It’s quite simply a great place to play and watch a game. From the end zone bleachers to the upper-deck stands, every seat features an uncluttered view of the playing surface, and more than half the seats provide sweeping vistas of the nearby Santa Catalina Mountains, as well as the campus and city skyline.
No refunds or exchanges on tickets will be permitted.
- All persons entering the stadium are subject to Arizona Board of Regents and University of Arizona rules and regulations, and the Laws of the State of Arizona. The University may revoke the ticket license and eject or refuse entry to persons for violation of arena or stadium rules, disruptive behavior, illegal activity, consumption of alcohol or other misconduct.
- All seats are reserved and each individual, including children three years and older, should sit in the seat for which he/she holds the ticket. Children two years of age and under do not require a ticket. To aid in the effort, we employ stadium crew members who can give assistance in seat location and other services patrons might require. Personal chair backs can be used in Arizona Stadium at the discretion of stadium staff. All portable stadium seats are limited to 18″ width, 9″ depth, cannot have attached armrests or cupholders, and cannot recline to encroach upon the access or legroom of adjacent patrons. If event staff determines that a chair back does not meet these guidelines, the owner will be asked to have the seats removed and stored for the duration of the game.
- No one is allowed on the field at any time without proper credentials.
- NO CONTAINERS ADMITTED (with the exception of sealed plastic water bottles). ALL PERSONAL ITEMS SUBJECT TO SEARCH. The University of Arizona policy prohibits bringing beverage and food containers into Arizona Stadium. If patrons do bring food or beverage containers including ice chests, bottles, cans, canteens, or bags containing food, they will be asked to dispose of them at the gate, or return them to their car. Patrons carrying clear bags or handbags will be asked by security to open them for inspection.
- It is unlawful for a person to consume spirituous liquor from a broken package in a public place, thoroughfare or gathering (ARS Section 4-244).
- The University prohibits the use of products that contain tobacco or nicotine, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, bidis, kreteks, hookahs, water pipes, and all forms of smokeless tobacco. Littering campus with remains of tobacco or smoking-related products also is prohibited.
- Smoking e-cigarettes is prohibited inside Arizona Stadium. Designated e-cigarette smoking areas are signed primarily on the outer concourse ramps. Per state law they must be away from stadium gates or building entries. Electronic cigarettes must only be used on the outer concourses not within stadium seating areas.
- Should patrons experience any discomfort because of the actions of others and wish to seek relief, please report the incident to the closest crew member. The crew member will then get assistance to alleviate the problem.
- For fans seeking a non-confrontational response to an issue with other fans or an arena concern, please TEXT your concern or issue with exact Section, Row, and Seat information to: 69050. Appropriate arena personnel will address your concerns.
- Videotaping or photography by ticket holders in ICA venues is restricted. No backlights, flashes, or mono/tripods.
- NCAA and Pac-12 rules prohibit the use of artificial noise makers or sound devices. The use of laser pointers and/or disconcerting flash photography is also strictly prohibited.
- Ticket holder consents to the audiotaping, photographing, filming, videotaping, or other multi-media formatted or sketched representation, of his/her name, likeness, voice, image or appearance while attending or participating in the Event, and forever waives any rights of publicity, privacy, copyright, ownership, or any residual or other type of payment or royalty in such tapes, videos, photographs and recordings as they may be distributed in any media forever throughout the universe.
- NO RE-ENTRY POLICY is in effect. If you leave the facility, you must purchase a new ticket in order to return to the game. The ticket office closes at the end of halftime.
