UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State Football season ticket renewals for the 2019 campaign will be available starting Tuesday, Dec. 11 by visiting www.GoPSUsports.com/accountmanager or calling 1-800-NITTANY, weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

Nittany Lion season ticket holders will be able to view and pay football season ticket renewals and Nittany Lion Club payments. Nittany Lion Club required payment levels will remain the same for next season. The season ticket renewal deadline is February 1, 2019 and the early renewal deadline is Dec. 21, 2018.

During the 2019 season, the No. 12 Nittany Lions will host Pittsburgh for the 100th series meeting, four Big Ten Conference foes – Indiana, Michigan, Purdue and Rutgers – in addition to Buffalo and Idaho. The Nittany Lions are among only six teams to finish in the Top 12 of the final College Football Playoff rankings each of the past three years.

New for 2019, fans can view and renew their tickets, parking and NLC contribution all in one invoice. While accessing their invoice online, season ticket holders can request to add or release tickets and parking permits, as well as the opportunity to opt into the Seat Selection process, which is expected to begin in March. The deadline to opt-in to the Seat Selection process is also February 1.

Fans can purchase their season tickets in full or in payments in amounts of their choosing, which must be paid in full by February 1, 2019.

Mobile Ticketing Expands

to Provide Additional

Security for Fans

In an effort to provide additional security for the ticket buying and event entry process, mobile ticketing will become the sole primary method of ticket delivery for all tickets purchased via ticketmaster.com and all tickets obtained via an electronic ticket transfer. With mobile tickets, fans can conveniently access tickets on their mobile device, download them to a digital wallet, and enjoy a streamlined venue entry experience. Mobile tickets make it even easier for fans to buy, sell, and transfer tickets.

Penn State Athletics has extended its partnership with Ticketmaster and will be installing Presence at Beaver Stadium for the 2019 season. Presence is Ticketmaster’s state-of-the-art venue access control and fan engagement platform that enables digital ticketing at scale to streamline the event entry process. Presence was implemented at Pegula Ice Arena prior to the 2018-19 hockey season.

Step-by-step instructions and frequently asked questions on mobile ticketing are available at: GoPSUsports.com/ticketmanagement.

Print-at-Home PDF tickets will no longer be issued or accepted for entry at Beaver Stadium. Print-at-Home PDF tickets were eliminated from all other Penn State Athletics venues in October 2018.

Parking Location

Upgrades Information

Season ticket holders wishing to upgrade their preferred or reserved parking location should note their desire to upgrade during the renewal process. Should parking spaces become available, they will be assigned in NLC point total order. Fans who purchased Yellow season parking for the 2018 season will need to renew their parking permits and then select a specific general lot for the entire 2019 season. The selection process for all general parking lots will take place after February 1, 2019. More information on the allocation process will be communicated at a later date.

Information on student season football tickets and single-game public variable ticket pricing will be announced in early 2019.
