How do I order a Homecoming T-shirt?

You may order your ticket through at the link for Tailgate and T-shirts. The T-shirt is a Gildan 100% cotton short-sleeved ($25) and long-sleeved ($30) with free shipping. T-shirts ordered by Oct. 1 will be shipped to arrive by Nov.11. T-shirts ordered after Oct. 1 cannot be guaranteed by game day. While both T-shirts and Tailgate tickets are on the same registration form, you can order a Homecoming T-shirt only on the registration form without purchasing Tailgate tickets. Purchase your T-shirt today. There will be a $5 processing fee included with all orders.

T-shirts are 100% cotton with 3-color design. The front of the shirt reads, “Greatest Rivalry on Earth” and the Homecoming logo is on the back. Carolina Alumni logo is on the sleeve. Shirts are unisex and are available in sizes small to 4X.

What is the price for the football game tickets?

Click in to purchase football tickets. Once the block is sold out, please visit for more ticket information.

Why is there a $5 per person processing fee?

To streamline our reunion processing and to create a more efficient and secure online registration experience, we have upgraded our event management system. This has resulted in a processing fee similar to other online event systems (e.g. Ticketmaster, UNC Ticket Office, Fandango, etc.) plus you have more control of your ticket purchasing.

You can now add, cancel and request refunds from your laptop or mobile device. Our system will also allow us to go ticketless. The fee directly supports system monitoring and frequent upgrades and does not fund any reunion activities. The $5 processing fee is nonrefundable.

I'm having problems with online registration. Who can help me?

Email if you are experiencing problems booking your Homecoming experience. In your email please be very detailed in explaining your technical issue. This will allow us to troubleshoot before responding.  Please allow 24 hours for a response.  Beginning the ticket purchase process before the deadline will allow us to be the most effective and efficient in solving online issues.

How will I receive my football tickets?

Tickets purchased via this website will be sent, electronically within 48 hours of the game.  Please note, we are unable to accommodate specific seating requests.  To guarantee  you are seated with a specific group, please purchase all tickets on one registration form (as you would with Ticketmaster, Live Nation, etc.).

Where are the Homecoming football tickets located?

The Homecoming football block will be determined by UNC ticket office. (view seating chart).

Do I need a football ticket for my three year old?

Per the UNC Athletic Department, everyone over the age of two will need a football ticket for admission. Two years and younger will not need a game ticket but will have to sit on a parent’s lap.

I'd like to sit with my friends at the football game. Is that possible?

To guarantee you are sitting with specific individuals, football tickets must be purchased all together on one (1) registration form (e.g. same as if you were purchasing tickets from Ticketmaster or Live Nation). Any game tickets purchased on one registration form will be seated together.

How do I add football tickets to an existing registration?

To ensure that you are all seated together, all tickets should be purchased at the same time. If subsequent orders are made by the same purchaser, all efforts will be made to be seated together but are not guaranteed.
