Good question! The Orange Lot parking passes that were offered last year in limited quantities aren’t available this year, due to the Dixie Classic Fair happening in the same area.
The organizers of the OPCD workshop have determined that no pre-registration or RSVP for the event is needed. Basically, if you don’t see an event listed in Cvent, no pre-registration or RSVP will be required.
No, the badges will be “generic” to identify Family Weekend attendees at various functions during the weekend.
To pick up your purchases, such as event tickets and t-shirts, just bring a copy of your email confirmation, either printed or displayed on a mobile device. If your student will be picking up for the family, please forward a copy of the confirmation to them.
Absolutely! The more the merrier!

No. Everything you purchase at our website, including event tickets, football tickets and t-shirts, will be waiting for you at the Registration tables, located in the rotunda area of the Benson University Center. Just bring your email confirmation, either printed or on your mobile device. The tables will be open from 9 AM – 7 PM on Friday and from 9 AM – 12 PM on Saturday.
That’s no problem! Students are invited to pick up purchases for their families with student ID. Make sure your student has a copy of your email confirmation, either printed or on a mobile device.
If your student is unable to pick up your order:
Families may make changes to a ticket order until August 31, 2018. Any deletion of a ticket order prior to this date will be refundable. After August 31, all ticket orders are non-refundable.
T-shirt purchases and the Family Registration fee are non-refundable.
In the event of inclement weather, the refund policy continues to apply.
In general, if an event has an admission cost, this also applies to your student. Athletic events (including the football game) are often free for students to attend, but the free admission enables them to sit only in the student section. If you’d like your student to sit with you, they will need a ticket.
Events featuring a meal, such as the Family Weekend Tailgate or Sunday Brunch, are not included on the WFU Dining Plan, so students will need tickets to attend.
During registration, look for the “Student Ticket” icon which will indicate events where students need a ticket.
The Family Weekend block seats are considered “best available” seating, but please keep in mind that these are allocated after season tickets have gone on sale. Once we have received our block, we seat families in the order of purchase according to our assessment of the “best” seat. (There are really no bad seats in our stadium!) Often part of our block falls on the visiting team’s side of the stadium, but this is also the side of the stadium where the student section is located. Some families prefer to sit near the students.
All tickets purchased before the close of the site at midnight on September 21 will be seated together.
Children under 8 are welcome to attend the Sunday brunch at no charge when accompanied by parents with tickets.

Please be aware that this year our local fair, The Dixie Classic Fair, will be happening at the fairgrounds directly across Deacon Blvd. from BB&T Field. The traffic on game day will likely be very heavy, so plan for extra travel time, especially if your family will be attending the Game Day Cookout at Couch Baseball Park.
If you need accessible seating at the football game, you may want to purchase your tickets from wakeforestsports.com; however, should you purchase your football tickets through our Family Weekend block and need accessible seating, please send an email to email@example.com ASAP letting us know the total number of your party and how many accessible seats are needed. Be as specific as possible in your message: will you need space for a wheelchair, limited amount of climbing, transportation to the stadium? Please don’t delay in sending us this information – during a sold-out game, this type of seating can be limited.
You must purchase football tickets to enter the student tailgate area. Once inside the gate, the student tailgate areas can be located around the tennis courts. There is not a charge for the tailgate, however, the food may be limited to snack-like items.

Please come on over to David F. Couch Ballpark. Our staff will check you in at the door.

Yes. The Cookout is a catered meal, so everyone who attends needs a wristband in order to visit the buffet tables.
