The football equity seating process (seat selection) scheduled for the spring of 2021 will be delayed one year to the spring of 2022. By postponing the selection process for one year, Carolina can make good on that promise of a third year in your current seat location in 2021. Season ticket renewals in 2021 will require that your 2020 annual membership be completed at the appropriate level by June 30, 2021. The priority point deadline and season ticket order deadline for this process will be shared by the fall of 2021. The selection process in 2022 will take place in the spring of 2022.

 

Why the Equity Seating Plan Exists

Rams Club members provide the valuable foundation of support that is critical to the success of Carolina Athletics. The Rams Club seeks to strengthen that foundation while recognizing the loyalty of Rams Club members at Carolina Football games through the Kenan Stadium Equity Seating Plan.

The plan utilizes well-known systems to members — the Priority Point System, current giving levels, and existing priority ticket allowances. In addition, the plan offers members the ability to select their own seats online or in person.

The Equity Seating Plan follows three guiding principles to recognize the support of Rams Club members.

  • Exhibit Fairness – Donors should expect great effort on the field, and an equitable assignment of seats in the stadium. Seats are selected every three years, allowing members to move their seats to better locations as their rank improves. The next seat selection is scheduled for 2022.
  • Recognize the Impact of Donations – Escalating costs for scholarships, facilities, and operations present challenges for Carolina that require flexibility to fund. Rams Club members continue to step forward to help meet our challenges and deserve recognition.
  • Acknowledge the Impact of Loyal Support – Donors deserve to be rewarded for not just a single gift, but a lifetime of giving. The Rams Club seeks to have members seated based upon rank, determined not just by contributions, but by years of membership.

The Equity Seating Plan is based upon four primary features:

  • Members select their priority seats in membership rank order. All available season ticket locations in the main bowl of Kenan Stadium are open for personal selection by active Rams Club members with a season ticket purchase. Your membership rank (determined by the Priority Point System) and giving level will determine your selection order.
  • Members select their parking in membership rank order. All season ticket holders at the Big Ram level and higher can select parking at the same time they select their seats.
  • Your giving level determines how many tickets you can select on priority. Active members will be in Priority Group A (Rameses level and higher) or Priority Group B (Tar Heel and Ram levels). Selection appointments will be filled with Group A members first, followed by Group B members.
  • Selections occur every three years, with 2022 being the next selection season. The selections made in 2018 will be locked in through 2022 (the next scheduled selection process) assuming a member’s giving level does not decrease in that timeframe. Rams Club members are encouraged to give thoughtful consideration to their membership level and rank for selections in 2022, as the selections made in 2022 will affect seating for the following three seasons.

Rams Club members have the ability to manage their account online. From ramsclub.com, you can monitor your rank, make a gift, check pledges and balances, change your address, see what impact a future gift might have on your rank and more. Members can also verify their giving level to ensure accuracy going into the selection process.
