Will there be on-site registration?

Yes. There will be limited on-site registration (based on availability).   On-site registration will also incur the $5 processing fee.  GAA member pricing will not be available during on-site registration.  Standard pricing will apply to all, regardless of GAA membership status.

How do I get my event tickets and apparel (registration times)?

Registration packets, which will includes apparel and event tickets can be picked up during these registration times:

  • Friday, Nov. 2, 2 – 7 p.m., Alumni Center
  • Saturday, Nov. 3, Time TBA, Alumni Center

Important Change: Registration and packet distribution WILL NO LONGER take place at the Bell Tower during the tailgate. Due to the expansion of the tailgate seating area, registration and packet distribution, on Saturday, will take place at the Alumni Center.

Can someone other than me pick up my registration packet?

Yes.  Email with the name of the individual (or individuals) that you will allow to pick up your registration packet.  This request must reach our office by Wednesday, Oct. 31.  NOTE: This request cannot be done on the day of registration or by phone. No exceptions.

Can I cancel and request a refund for my Homecoming registration?

Yes, you can cancel and request a refund for most Homecoming events (football tickets, apparel and processing fees are nonrefundable).  To cancel or request a refund for eligible events, email by 5 p.m. (EDT) on Wednesday, Oct. 17.

What are the prices for Homecoming events (before the deadline)?

  • Football tickets: Standard Price – $25

Why is there a $5 per person processing fee?

To streamline our reunion processing and to create a more efficient 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.). The fee directly supports system monitoring and frequent upgrades and does not fund any reunion activities. The processing fee is $5 per person.

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.  Booking before the deadline will allow us to be the most effective and efficient in solving online issues.  

How can I join the GAA?

You can join the GAA, book your experience and take immediate advantage of member pricing – all at one time.

Click on Book Your Homecoming Experience, fill in your name and email and from the registration type drop down select I’m a GAA member/I want to join/I need to renew. Follow the prompts from there.

I'm a GAA member and my spouse/guest is not. Is she/he eligible for GAA member pricing?

No.  Only GAA members are eligible for GAA member pricing.   If your spouse/guest is not a GAA member, her/his tickets must be purchased at the standard rate.

Where are the football tickets on the online form?

Football tickets are located under the optional items section (just above the Homecoming T-shirts). Please note that if you are only purchasing football tickets you do not need to enter all the names of your guests.

What time is the football game?

Game times are set by the ACC and will typically be announced 7 – 10 business days prior to game day.

How will I receive my football tickets?

Tickets purchased via this website will be sent, electronically, 1-2 weeks prior to game time. 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 ball block will be in section 110 and 101 (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.
