EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Spartan Ticket Office has reported that requests for 2014 Rose Bowl tickets from Spartan Fund members, University donors, students and season-ticket holders have exceeded 31,000, far more than the university's 24,000 ticket allotment and there will not be a public/alumni sale. The request process was designed to provide an opportunity for as many donors and season-tickets holders as possible to enjoy MSU's historic participation in the 100th Rose Bowl Game.
As was stated in all communications, a request-with-payment order did not guarantee the purchase of Rose Bowl tickets. Immediately after placing a request-with-payment, fans received a "request received" email. After 10 p.m. this evening, those who have made requests will receive an email notifying them of their order fulfillment status.
In some cases, we were able to partially fill ticket requests. Spartan Fund Members at the Directors Club ($5,000 annual donation to athletics) had their requests reduced from six (6) tickets to four (4) tickets. Spartan Fund members at the Honorary Coaches ($2,000 annual donation to athletics) through Green & White Club ($500 annual donation to athletics) as well as University Donors from Shaw Society ($500,000 lifetime giving to MSU) and lower had their request reduced from four (4) tickets to two (2) tickets. These accounts will be refunded the difference.
Non-student seats will be assigned first by active Spartan Fund Member level and/or University Donors level and then by Spartan Points within each level (complete grid is available on msuspartans.com).
Tickets for confirmed orders will be mailed by December 20 via FedEx for delivery no later than December 24. A tracking number will be sent via e-mail to the e-mail address on file. Those expecting delivery are encouraged to sign-up for FedEx Delivery Manager at http://www.fedex.com/us/delivery/ to customize or change their delivery, which is ideal for those that will not be home for the holidays.
Cancellations with refund (less the $25 processing fee) will be accepted through December 18 at 6 p.m. via written request either faxed to 517.432.2232 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
