Reminder of Ticket Card Guidelines
As stated in the ticket card agreement
signed by all ticket card holders at the conclusion of Campout 2009:
"The unauthorized resale of a season ticket card is not permitted.
While ticket cards are freely exchangeable with other graduate and
professional students, this is allowed in the spirit that students will
share ticket cards, not "scalp" their tickets to other students. The
per-game cost of a ticket ($7.50) can be determined by dividing the
cost of a season ticket ($150.00) by the number of home basketball
games (20). Students are reminded that North Carolina state laws govern
the acceptable resale of tickets. Failure to comply with such laws
could result in disciplinary action from his/her graduate or
professional school. Any student caught engaging in the unauthorized resale of a season ticket card will have that ticket card deactivated." No refunds will be issued for deactivated ticket cards.
Reminder of Regular Line Policies and University Policies
food or drink can be brought into Cameron Indoor Stadium. This must be
thrown away before entering the stadium. Backpacks and bags of any
kind, including purses and camera bags, will not be allowed into the
stadium. Individuals with backpacks or bags of any kind will not be
permitted to enter Cameron.
