Football season tickets may be transferred to a friend, family member or other loyal Mountaineer fan. This limited-time offer will allow many of our longtime friends to pass the glory of game days on so others can keep the traditions alive for years to come.
Current season ticket holders will need to complete the 2013 Football Season Ticket Transfer Form
(.pdf file). Season ticket holders may also request a Season Ticket Transfer form by contacting the MAC office at 1-800-433-2072 or via email at MAC@mail.wvu.edu
All new account information, including address, phone number and email, are part of the approval process and must be included on the transfer form. To prevent the unauthorized transfer of season tickets, both the current and new/existing account holders must sign the form and include a copy of each person’s valid driver’s license or state issued identification and submit it to the MAC office for approval. Employees of WVU and its affiliates transferring season tickets must also include a copy of their University-issued identification.
All season ticket transfer applications should be mailed to the Mountaineer Athletic Club. To prevent the unauthorized transfer of season tickets, fax or phone transfer applications will not be accepted. All transfer applications should be mailed to:
Season Ticket Transfer
Mountaineer Athletic Club
P.O. Box 0877
Morgantown, WV 26507
Once approved, permanent changes will be made in the MAC and Mountaineer Ticket Office record systems, and both parties will be notified of the successful transfer. At that point, the process is complete.
A minimum of two (2) and a maximum of ten (10) Touchdown Terrace tickets may be transferred into a new account. Since season tickets in the Touchdown Terrace are priced differently and come with several benefits not associated with other season tickets in Milan Puskar Stadium, the following minimum annual donation will be required to transfer: 2-3 tickets - $3,500 4-5 tickets - $6,500 6-7 tickets - $10,000 8+ tickets - $15,000 If transferring tickets into an existing account, the total number of tickets in the account may not exceed ten (10) total tickets following the transfer. Existing season ticket holders who do not make an annual fund gift to the MAC and want to transfer additional tickets into their account, must make an annual donation based on the total number of tickets in their account from the chart above. Existing season ticket holders who make an annual fund donation and wish to transfer additional tickets into their account, must either make the same annual fund gift as the previous year or an annual fund gift based on total number of tickets in their account from the chart above, whichever is higher. To transfer tickets in the Touchdown Terrace please use the MAC Benefits Chart
for a complete list of available benefits.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Yes, tickets may be transferred into an existing account; however, the transferee’s account cannot contain more than ten (10) season tickets prior to the transfer and cannot exceed ten (10) total season tickets following the transfer. Example 1: Donor A wants to transfer ten (10) season tickets to Donor B (transferee). Donor B already has four (4) season tickets in his existing account. So Donor B does not exceed the maximum number of ten (10) season tickets permitted in an existing account, the maximum number of season tickets Donor B would be allowed to transfer/accept from Donor A is six (6) season tickets. Example 2: Donor A wants to transfer two (2) season tickets to Donor B (transferee). Donor B already has four (4) season tickets in her account. Donor B would be allowed to accept the two (2) tickets from Donor A as it gives her six (6) total season tickets, and does not exceed the ticket transfer limit or account limit of ten (10) season tickets.
There is no limit to the number of people season tickets can be transferred to.
That is entirely up to the parties completing the transfer. Normally, the person receiving the tickets and/or establishing the new account makes the Seat Transfer payment. No transfers are complete until the appropriate transfer fees, per-seat gift and ticket payment are received and written confirmation is provided by the Mountaineer Athletic Club.
No. If your annual gift is more than the total required per-seat gifts for all transferred season tickets and existing season tickets in your account, you will not be required to make an additional per-seat gift. Only the seat transfer fee would be required. Example 1: Donor A wants to transfer two (2) Gold Zone season tickets into his account. Donor A already has two (2) season tickets located in the Red Zone and makes an annual gift of $6,500. Donor A would only be required to pay the $500 transfer fee for the two (2) tickets in the Gold Zone. Example 2: Donor B wants to transfer four (4) Red Zone season tickets into her account. Donor B already has four (4) season tickets in the Gold Zone and makes and annual gift of $2,000. Since the total required per-seat donation for four (4) Red Zone and four (4) Gold Zone season tickets is $2,700, Donor B would be required to make an additional gift of $700 plus a transfer fee of $1,700. Donor B would need to purchase the four additional season tickets.
No. A current season ticket holder’s purchase history is not eligible for transfer. Once tickets are transferred, the transferee either begins their own account or has tickets added to their existing account. The transferor retains his/her account information.
Ticket transfers are not part of our normal operating procedure. This is the third time in the history of the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics that we have conducted an open period for season ticket transfers and the transfer fee helps us absorb the additional costs associated with the process. Ticket transfers will also create a group of new donors and season ticket holders who will receive significantly better tickets than they otherwise would have been entitled to. The transfer fee helps justify the reassignment of ticketing to brand new donors and season ticket holders, and helps us recoup lost opportunity gifts.
The costs associated with tuition, travel, medical care and insurance, facility maintenance, construction and other costs continue to escalate and are beyond the fiscal control of the athletic department. These areas will directly benefit from the additional financial support generated from transfer fees.
A gift above the minimum per-seat donation may be required for season ticket holders who want to transfer more than ten (10) season tickets into a new or existing account. Additional transfer fees may be applicable. Please contact the Mountaineer Athletic Club for more information.
No. The transfer option precedes any relocation requests. You would be able to request a ticket upgrade beginning in the 2014 season.
Beginning in 2014 and beyond, you will only be required to pay the appropriate per-seat gift and season ticket price. If you gave an additional donation and received further benefits from the MAC, including parking, you would need to donate at the appropriate annual giving level to maintain those benefits.
The transfer option is a limited opportunity, so it must be carefully considered and acted upon before the deadline of May 15, 2013.
No. The limited-time seat transfer is only available for football season tickets.
A ticket transfer applications must be completed for each person you are transferring tickets to. In this instance, five (5) separate transfer applications must be submitted.

To prevent the unauthorized transfer of season tickets, both the current and new/existing account holders must sign the form and include a copy of each person’s valid driver’s license or state issued identification and submit it to the MAC office for approval.
