GENERAL GAMEDAY INFORMATION

As established by the State of Mississippi’s latest executive orders, Ole Miss home football games will be at 25 percent capacity in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to begin the 2020 season. Fans must keep six feet of social distancing between persons not in the same household.

Fans will be required to wear face coverings at all times when possible and particularly upon entering and exiting the stadium and while traveling around the concourse.

Stadium gates will open two hours prior to kickoff, and fans are encouraged to arrive early as lines will be socially distanced. Fans will be required to enter at the gate listed on their ticket, as gate entry corresponds with the section of each ticket.

Per SEC guidelines, signage shall be installed at all gates and ingress/entry points that outlines mandates for all guests to wear face coverings, maintain physical distancing and mandate guests do not enter the stadium if they display any COVID-19 symptoms as outlined by the CDC. Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the venue.

To accommodate a touchless operation, all tickets and parking passes will be digital-only, while concessions, Rebel Shop and other points of sale will shift to cashless transactions.

Fans are encouraged not to bring bags to allow for quicker entry into the stadium. However, for those that do, the clear bag policy will be enforced for stadium entry.

All season ticket holders received a survey to select their preference to participate in the 2020 football ticket selection. The deadline to submit your survey is Tuesday, Sept. 8. At this time, if you do not wish to participate in the 2020 season, you may provide what to do with funds already paid towards this season through the survey.

Once your selection is made, it cannot be changed for the 2020 season.  If you decide to purchase tickets for a home game later in the season after making your selection to opt out, you may purchase tickets at full price after priority selections are complete, if inventory remains.

  • Donate all 2020 Football money as a charitable, tax-deductible gift and receive three (3) times blue priority point bonus. Blue points are used to allocate away game tickets, postseason tickets, and parking.
  • Transfer all 2020 football money to the 2021 football season.  2021 renewals will be based on your 2019 seat location.
  • Refund all 2020 football money to the original payment method. Please be mindful that your ticket payments directly support the more than 400 Rebel student-athletes, their experience at Ole Miss and the resources that help them pursue championships.  Ole Miss Athletics encourages donations rather than refunds.

CGA EXTENSIONS AND CONTRIBUTION BALANCES

Football Capital Gift Agreements will be extended through the 2025 season due to COVID-19, and 2021 renewals will be based on 2019 seat locations. Season ticket holders that do not select single-game tickets, either by choice or limitations, may convert their 2020 ticket purchase to a charitable contribution with triple priority point bonus; credit forward to 2021 season; or receive a refund. An email will be sent to season ticket holders on Sept. 2 regarding all ticketing options for the 2020 season.

CLUBS AND SUITES

Like the grandstand, fans will select their section in the club area, and Ole Miss Athletics will determine the reserved seats for each account. Food service will shift to grab-and-go in the clubs, and lockers will be assigned on a game-by-game basis. Some furniture will be removed from the club areas to better accommodate social distancing.  

Indoor and outdoor seating will be reserved in the clubs for each game. Some indoor club seating may not be able to view the playing field. Ticket holders for outdoor seating may not congregate indoors during games.  

In the Field Club, fans will not be allowed to congregate in the outdoor common turf area so as to avoid social gatherings. 

Suites will maintain normal operations and food service. “Suite hopping” shall be prohibited, including from suites to clubs.

Elevator capacity will be limited to five people.

STUDENT SEATING & PARKING

The student section will be located in north endzone sections N1-N10, and the seating format will be announced soon. Student tickets will be available on a single-game basis, and sales will begin the Monday before each home game. Ole Miss students will receive an email by Sept. 14 with ticket order dates and times based on Fall 2020 classifications. 

Included in the email will be details surrounding priority ticket purchasing opportunities for Rebel Rewards members. To enroll in the free official rewards program of Ole Miss Athletics, download the Rebel Rewards app or visit www.rebelrewards.com to sign up using your @go.olemiss.edu email address.   

Student parking will be included in the ticket cost and available at the Jackson Avenue Center, and campus shuttles will be available for students from the lot to the stadium.

PARKING

Fan parking is included in the ticket price and will be allocated based on the selection process that occurred in June. Season ticket holders that did not previously select a 2020 parking pass will be allocated to the best available lot based on priority.  Fans will be allotted one parking pass per game for orders of one-to-five tickets and two parking passes for orders of six-to-eight. Due to limited inventory, additional parking will not be available.  

Parking passes will be digital-only and distributed via email. Duplicated digital parking passes will not be accepted, and lots will open three hours prior to kickoff.

Only fans with a parking pass will be permitted on campus on gameday. Off-campus shuttle service will not be operating this season. On-campus ADA shuttles will be available.

RV PARKING

RVs will be limited to parties of 10 people at each parking stall, which will be chalked to designate the area permissible for that group. This limitation will be strictly monitored and enforced by campus authorities.

Assigned RV stalls in the South Lot and Baseball Lot will be accessible by pass holders after 5 p.m. on Fridays of home weekends as they become available. Ole Miss students retain rights to park in both RV lots until that time and will not be asked to move to accommodate an RV prior to that time.

From Thursdays at noon until Fridays at 5 p.m., RVs may be staged at the Whirlpool Lot across from the South Campus Recreation Center on Chucky Mullins Drive. Space is limited in this lot and will be first-come, first-served.

CONCESSIONS

Concessions stands will be at limited capacity and include a reduced menu. New this season, in-seat delivery will be available in both the seating bowl and the premium areas. As introduced last year, beer will continue to be served. 

All concessions locations will be cashless with the exception of one stand in the south concourse.

Each fan will be permitted to bring in one sealed bottle of water, as water fountains will not be available.

TAILGATING

As mandated by Mississippi’s executive order, tailgating and other social gatherings on campus will be prohibited on gamedays. Fans attending games should limit their time on campus to the game only and not events before or after the contest. The Grove and Circle may only be used as pedestrian walkways. 

In addition, the Walk of Champions will not take place, and FanFest will not be available.
