Gone, or at least diminished, are the days of hustled football ticket sales and students sneaking their non-UNC friends into games with borrowed One Cards.
A new policy announced Monday by the UNC Athletic Ticket Office will allow students to purchase guest passes for football games online. The passes for those games became available for purchase Monday. Passes for the East Carolina University and N.C. State University games will be available beginning the Monday before those games.
For $50 — the full general admission ticket price — non-UNC students can now purchase passes to the student section for any football game not included in the lottery.
If a student does buy these tickets, the student will be seated next to his or her guest or guests.
The ticket office collaborated with the Carolina Athletic Association to determine the policy, which was unveiled in a campuswide e-mail.
