Qualifying patrons will be assigned a personalized selection date and time based on Badger Select rank: 2021 Annual Giving Level and priority points as of December 31, 2017 plus 2018 – 2021 priority points accrued from non–deductible donations, and years of purchase for non–donor season ticket holders. Non–deductible donations include those associated with Priority Seating and Badger Select Seating Contributions. Priority Points will NOT be allocated for 100% deductible donations made in 2018 – 2021 for Badger Select Rank.
