The priority point system for the UMAA Foundation recognizes and rewards those donors who have committed to the long term success of Ole Miss Athletics. Points are given to all UMAA Foundation members and season ticket holders in football, men's basketball and baseball. One (1) point is awarded for every $100 dollars donated to the UMAA Foundation, along with an additional point (1) for each season ticket purchased for football, men's basketball, or baseball.
For example: Donor #1 gives $2,500 to the Football Priority Seating Fund, and purchases 4 season tickets. Donor #1 will receive 25 points for the donation, in addition to 4 points for the season tickets, for a total of 29 priority points. Points are accrued over time, and these points are lifetime points that can’t be lost. Therefore Donor #1 will receive 29 additional points if they continue at the same contribution level.
Priority points are how the UMAA Foundation rank people in terms of who gets the best seats for season tickets allocations, away games, bowl games, NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, SEC Baseball Tournament, etc. Priority points will also be the determining factor on who gets what seats in the new basketball arena. Every UMAA Foundation member and season ticket holder has priority points, along with a priority point rank. The following is a breakdown of the active 9,700+ UMAA Foundation Members and season ticket holders that have purchased tickets or made a donation within the last 2 years (Numbers are accurate as of September 1, 2011):
