Penn State Announces Men’s Basketball Reseat Ahead of 2022-23 Season
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The Penn State Athletics department will do a full reseat of all season ticket seat locations at the Bryce Jordan Center ahead of the 2022-23 Penn State men’s basketball season. The reseating process will take place in late August.
What is a reseat?
Reseat is a process where all season ticket holders in the arena select new seats. Everyone who places a seat deposit will receive an appointment window when they will select from any available seats in the arena. Appointment windows will be determined by Nittany Lion Club priority point order. A reseat is a common practice at many collegiate athletic institutions and widely used across the country.
This is different from a standard renewal year. During a reseat year, a deposit must be placed to be eligible to select seats during the reseat. Deposits can be placed for both existing and new season ticket holders HERE.
Why is the reseat taking place?
As part of the yearly evaluation process and based on feedback received in the 2021-22 postseason season ticket holder surveys, Penn State Athletics reviewed many options to create a true home-court advantage as part of an extraordinary student-athlete and fan experience. A full reseat will allow Penn State Athletics to achieve the following goals that are central to our mission:
As part of the plan to enhance the game day experience for all fans and create the best home-court atmosphere, Legion of Blue, the official student section for Penn State Men’s Basketball, will be relocated to sections 101L-110L, located behind the home and visiting team benches, with additional student seating continuing to be behind the baskets. The relocation of the student section will enhance the game day atmosphere, the student-athlete experience, the Penn State student experience and the overall fan experience by helping to create an intimidating and raucous environment for opposing teams.
In addition to providing a great in-venue environment, moving the student section to behind the benches will also showcase Legion of Blue and Nittany Nation’s support for our men’s basketball program for those watching at home, as well as impacting what recruits see on television.
The reseat provides all fans the opportunity to enhance their seats by reviewing all available inventory and amenities.
The reseat rewards season ticket holders and donors with priority access to selecting seats during the reseat process based on their Nittany Lion Club priority points.
August 9 – Deposits due, Deadline to improve NLC Priority Point rank*

* All donors who make gifts to Penn State Athletics after August 9 will still receive points; however, points earned after August 9 will not count towards their rank for this reseat.
Existing and new season ticket holders will have until August 9 to place a deposit to be eligible to select seats during the reseat. There will not be a standard 2022-23 season ticket renewal process, as it will instead be replaced by this reseat opportunity.

Deposits can be placed HERE.
During the seat selection process and in appointment windows ranked by Nittany Lion Club priority point order, all existing and new season ticket holders will receive a designated date and time to access a Virtual Venue for the Bryce Jordan Center, browse all available seat locations, and select their new season ticket seat location.
