Request your football tickets through Big Orange Tix

It’s Football Time in Tennessee! Big Orange Tix is your official ticket source for all things Tennessee Football. Coach Pruitt and your Vols have been working hard and are ready to #PutOnMoreSteam this season! Mask up and Go Vols!

It’s fall here on Rocky Top, and you know what that means! Yes, football! We’re excited to cheer on the Tennessee Volunteers, and we wanted to let you know that the process to reserve tickets is going to look a little different this year.

What is Big Orange Tix?
Big Orange Tix is your source to reserve student tickets for basketball and football games.

It’s simple to use! To request a ticket, just follow these steps:

  1. First, go to the ticket portal site.
  2. Log in with your NetID and password on UT’s Central Authentication Service page, and then complete your two-factor authentication (2FA) login.
  3. Find the game you want to attend and request the ticket.
  4. And you’re all set!

What’s different this year?
This fall, the number of fans in Neyland stadium will be limited to keep everyone’s health and safety a priority. This means that eligible students may request up to approximately 2,700 football tickets per home game. Home games will be divided into two groups:

  • Group A: Missouri, Kentucky, and Texas A&M
  • Group B: Alabama and Florida
In an effort to allow an equitable distribution of tickets throughout the season, if a student purchases a ticket to a game in Group A, they are no longer eligible to request a ticket during the request period for another game in Group A. Their access will be restricted to Big Orange Tix until Open Sales. The student would then have an opportunity to purchase another game in Group A during Open Sales. The same rules apply to Group B.





If you would like to attend a second or third game in either group, you will have to wait after the initial request period is over and buy one from the open sales period. This gives the opportunity for all students to go to at least two games this year.

Students should adhere to all campus safety guidelines, including social distancing and wearing face coverings, while on campus and in Neyland Stadium on game day.

So, come on out to a game and support your favorite football team! Don’t forget to wear your mask and practice social distancing!
