We are cautiously optimistic that tailgate parking will be allowed in the Fall 2021 and so we are moving forward with selling season parking passes once again. We do so with the understanding that our regular game day operating practices may be modified this season.

There are still many unknowns about what tailgate parking will look like and we want to be upfront about what we cannot guarantee this year relating to your parking pass purchase. At this time, we cannot guarantee that there will be space available in the ESC parking area you choose due to the possibility of reduced parking capacity. We cannot guarantee what time parking lots will be available on game day. We cannot guarantee that tailgating will be allowed in parking areas or what restrictions and guidelines will apply to tailgating.

What we can guarantee is that we will do our best to meet your needs while also complying with health guidelines from the State of Oregon, Lane County, City of Eugene, and University of Oregon. Should things not work out as planned, you will have the option to cancel your parking pass and request a refund of your payment.

Scroll down for more information about parking areas and how to purchase a parking pass for 2021.

For those who purchased season passes for 2020:

Your 2020 season pass payment has been automatically be applied to the 2021 season. You do not need to do anything else to reserve your pass – it is already in our database.  However – if you moved since you purchased the pass in early 2020, please let us know your new address so that we can mail the pass to the right place!
