Tailgating will not be allowed in any parking lots at this time. There will be no recreational vehicles, buses, or trailers allowed in the parking lots.

Members of the North Dakota Champions Club, VIPs, and suite holders will receive their parking tags in the mail prior to UND's first home game on Feb. 20. In order to ensure your reserved parking spot, you must have that tag displayed upon arriving at the facility. All parking lots will open two hours prior to kickoff.  General admission parking will be available for $10 per spot on a first-come, first-served basis.


These rules MUST be adhered to if we’re going to be allowed to continue to bring fans back into the building. We know some of these policies are inconvenient, but they are also absolutely necessary for us to comply with the requirements that govern gatherings at large venues in our state during the pandemic.
