New Policy Restricts Commercial Activity in Front of Athletic Facilities

Power TThe university has announced new regulations that will impact ticket resellers at UT games, effective immediately.

The new university policy bars commercial solicitations, including the reselling of tickets to athletic events, music concerts, and other campus events, in front of Neyland Stadium and Thompson-Boling Arena, from four hours prior to the start of a game or event and remains in effect until the end.

For football games, commercial activity will be prohibited in the stadium’s Gate 21 Plaza and along the east side of Phillip Fulmer Way from Middle Way Drive to Gate 10.

During basketball season, resale of tickets and other commercial activity will be prohibited along Phillip Fulmer Way from Tee Martin Drive to Lake Loudoun Boulevard in front of the basketball arena.

The new policy is intended to reduce traffic congestion, protect the university’s ability to sell tickets to the public, and increase the safety, comfort, and enjoyment of the game day experience.

Police on campus will assist with enforcement of the new policy.
