How It Works

The Fertitta Center Seat Selection Process provides the opportunity to purchase Houston Men's Basketball season tickets in the opening year of the Fertitta Center (2018-19) before the general public.

One may participate in the Fertitta Center Seat Selection Process by becoming a Cougar Pride member for the 2018 fiscal year and/or making a minimum commitment to the Fertitta Center of $500+ prior to June 30, 2018. To become a Cougar Pride member for the 2018 fiscal year, one must make a Cougar Pride "Unrestricted" donation and/or "Football Per Seat" commitment payment during the 2018 fiscal year (July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018).

Each participant will be ranked and assigned a unique seat selection appointment (date/time) whereby they may select their seats.

Given recent changes in tax law, these amounts may not be tax deductible. We encourage you to consult your attorney, accountant or other appropriate tax professional for further guidance on how to structure your commitment.

Seat Selection Appointments (Date/Time) are assigned using three Ranking Criteria:

  1. Fertitta Center Commitments of $500+
  2. The Cougar Pride Priority Point System
  3. 2017-18 Men's Basketball Season Ticket Holders (Non-Cougar Pride Members)
    • Cumulative Priority Point Total

Fertitta Center Commitment Incremental Priority:

  • $100,000+
    • Incremental Priority of $5,000
    • Example: Eric committed $100,000 to the Fertitta Center. If John wants to be ranked above Eric, he would need to commit a minimum of $105,000 to the Fertitta Center.
  • $20,000-$99,999
    • Incremental Priority of $2,500
    • Example: Katie committed $20,000 to the Fertitta Center. If Aubrey wants to be ranked above Katie, she would need to commit a minimum of $22,500 to the Fertitta Center.
  • $2,500-$19,999
    • Incremental Priority of $1,000
    • Example: Celena committed $5,000 to the Fertitta Center. If Tyler wants to be ranked above Celena, he would need to commit a minimum of $6,000 to the Fertitta Center.
  • $500-$2,499
    • Incremental Priority of $500
    • Example: John committed $1,000 to the Fertitta Center. If Hailey wants to be ranked above John, she would need to commit a minimum of $1,500 to the Fertitta Center.

Luxury & Priority Chairback Seating Options in the Fertitta Center

For more information on how to obtain Luxury and/or Priority Chairback Seating in the Fertitta Center, please contact Cougar Pride at 713-743-GoUH (4684) or email cougarpride@uh.edu.

A minimum Fertitta Center Commitment following the above section(s) will increase the likelihood of obtaining seating in these categories. While the minimum Fertitta Center commitment provides a greater opportunity to purchase Luxury Seating and/or Priority Chairbacks, it does not create a right to the location of these seats, as this will be determined during the Fertitta Center Seat Selection Process.
