Gator Sports Tickets: University of Florida students are admitted free to most athletic events with a valid student identification card. The only exception is Gator football. Now that you are a member of the Gator student body, you might be wondering how you could order a season ticket to watch the Gator football team this fall. The lottery to purchase season tickets begins in early April. For information about this process or general ticket information, visit http://www.gatorzone.com/students/.
