2021-22 Ticket Details – University of British Columbia Athletics

We are delighted to have our teams able to compete again this season and to welcome our fans again to cheer them on!

In recognition of the challenges we have all faced as a result of COVID, we are happy to offer fans a unique take on ticketing this season. Thanks to the support of generous partners and sponsors, we offer FREE ENTRY to almost every home game of the regular season (with the exception of the flat fee of $ 5 for entry to our two festival events: Winter Classic on January 21, 2022 and Courtside on February 11, 2022).

Although most events are free, you still need a ticket to participate in all our closed sporting events this season, so please make sure to order your ticket in advance as seats will be more limited than usual due to public health ordinance requirements.

Closed sports include: men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s hockey, men’s and women’s football, men’s and women’s volleyball, and soccer. Our traditionally non-closed sports, such as field hockey and rugby, will continue to be free and not need a ticket. Please note that we are unfortunately unable to accommodate spectators at one of our exhibition games this season.

(When selecting a game to order tickets through our ticketing platform, please click on the event name for full event details).
