Homecoming Football Game

Head over to Raymond James Stadium to support your USF Bulls as they take on the ECU Pirates on Saturday, October 10! Please note that due to COVID regulations this will be a limited fan experience, and we have been working with local health officials to make sure your experience is safe and enjoyable as a USF fan. One of the most notable changes this season is that students will have the ability to claim seating pods that are physically distant in groups of 1, 2, 3, or 4 total seats.

Important Information This Year

Student Claim Process: Beginning Monday, October 5th, we will open FREE tickets to USF Students for our Homecoming game on Saturday October 10th. All student tickets will be available through the Herd Perks App or through USFStudentTix.com. For more information, including a step-by-step walkthrough, please visit here.

Reduced Seating and Parking Capacity: In partnership with the Tampa Sports Authority and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, we are establishing a physically distanced environment for our fans to enjoy games this fall. While this means there will be changes in capacity and locations in both stadium seating and its surrounding parking lots, it is our goal to provide fans the best possible options to see the Bulls play at Ray Jay this season.

Seating Pods: Seating for the 2020 season is designed with distancing in mind, and pods of seating have been establishing to keep your party safe while attending the game. Fans may not purchase part of a pod. To be given the available seating for your party, select the quantity first when viewing seats.

Cashless: All transactions will now be cashless at Raymond James Stadium. If you only have cash available, reverse ATM machines will be available throughout the stadium that will allow you to load cash onto a card that may be used at stadium vendors.

No Bags: In order to limit the transfer of items between stadium staff and fans as well as to expedite entry and reduce lines, no bags larger than a small clutch will be permitted to be brought into the stadium this fall.

Face Masks: Face masks will be required to be worn by all fans and all stadium staff at all times upon entering Raymond James Stadium.

Hygiene Upgrades: Upgrades have been made to increase the number and accessibility of hand-washing stations and sanitation kiosks throughout the stadium.

Pedestal Scanners: Pedestal ticket scanners with tap-and-go technology have been installed at every Raymond James Stadium gate, eliminating the exchange of phones between stadium staff and fans and speeding stadium entry.
