Syracuse football and basketball fans with parking passes through Syracuse Athletics will see some changes for the 2019-2020 seasons.
In an email to fans who pay for parking passes for both sports, the University announced a new way of picking who parks where:
“In an effort to generate the resources required for our students to compete with our peers in the top tier of the ACC and provide our teams with the means to win championships, changes have been made in the areas of donor benefit allocation, including parking options for all donors and season ticket holders. We are implementing a new parking system as part of Syracuse University Athletics’ enhanced benefits structure. Each season, you will participate in selecting your parking based on your Donor Rank. The new Donor Rank system provides every donor with opportunities to positively impact his or her donor benefits and status. It also creates a more fair, equitable and transparent parking system.”

According to S.U. Athletics, the new parking system for those with parking passes will be based on “Donor Rank“, which incorporates how much a person donates to the school each year as the first consideration for parking.
The athletic department says it will send a letter in March, detailing instructions for the parking allocation process, parking application, and parking lot maps.
Parking selection and purchase for the 2019 football season will begin in May. Syracuse University says it will have parking inventory available for all season ticket holders.
This new program will only apply to the parking areas designated for those who apply for parking passes.
