- NCAA Football Tickets
After nearly two years of renovations, California Memorial Stadium reopened its gates in 2012 to once again stake its claim as home to Golden Bears football. On October 18, be in the stands as Cal takes on UCLA at California Memorial Stadium. Before you purchase Cal football tickets, be sure to take note of the important venue details included below.
California Memorial Stadium Seating Information
California Memorial Stadium offers just one level of seating, with each section designated by a letter (from A-XX). Starting at the end zone with section A, the circle moves alphabetically counter-clockwise, with each single letter section followed by its double-letter counterpart (e.g. A, AA, B, BB). Sections EE-FF and H-I offer benchback seating, while the premium sections G and GG offer chairback seats.
Please note Sections R-SS are designated as student sections, and the venue may require a student ID in addition to a ticket for entry to these sections. Section QQ is also designated as a "New Alumni" section that may require a form of ID.
Also note that the designated area for fans of the visiting team is confined to sections MM-P.
California Memorial Stadium General Information
No signs or banners of any kind, bottles, cans, hard coolers, umbrellas, noise-making devices, or balls are allowed within the venue. Only small bags are allowed within the stadium gates. Personal, non-professional cameras are permitted, as is outside food and beverage (only if for personal use). Alcohol is only allowed in the club levels of the stadium. All children two and older must have a ticket.
California Memorial Stadium Parking Information
UC Berkeley highly recommends public transportation to California Memorial Stadium on game days, due to limited available parking. The university offers free shuttles from the downtown Bay Area Rapid Transit station and areas around campus on game days.
Football parking permits may be available for purchase; these allow access to on-campus lots. There are also a handful of public parking garages available within the vicinity of the stadium, but keep in mind many of these are first-come, first-served.
California Memorial Stadium Gate Times
Gates to California Memorial Stadium open two hours prior to kickoff.
California Memorial Stadium Accessibility
California Memorial Stadium offers many accessibility options, including elevators, restrooms, and shuttle or golf cart services, which are available starting two hours before kickoff. There are also options for ADA parking, but these must be reserved ahead of time with the athletics department. Accessible seating is also available in sections A, AA, BB, C, D, DD, EE, F, HH, I, J, JJ, KK, L, M, PP, R, RR, S, SS, UU, WW, and X. For visiting guests, accessible seats are located in sections MM, OO, and P.
