Why is there a 6% 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. BAR and Homecoming are the first events to utilize our new system. The processing fee is 6%.  Our goal is to have all GAA alumni events transitioned to the new system in 2018.

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

Email bar@unc.edu if you are experiencing problems booking your BAR 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 BAR 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 BAR T-shirts).

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.

Where are the BAR football tickets located?

The BAR football ball block will be in section 102 and 103 (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.
