By purchasing your tickets through the University of Maryland allotment, you guarantee yourself seating with other Terp fans who will be cheering our football team to victory in the bowl.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO PURCHASE YOUR BOWL TICKETS THROUGH THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND. One of the many factors involved in Maryland's bowl selection is its ability to sell tickets and have great fan support at the Military Bowl. Additionally, each team invited to a bowl is responsible for a specific allotment and must cover that amount of tickets. Tickets =purchased through our ticket office help us fulfill that requirement..

How much are tickets and where can I purchase them?
Ticket prices are determined by the individual bowl and are available through Maryland.  You can reserve bowl tickets now through your online application HERE or by calling the ticket office at 800-462-8377.  As a special incentive, if you purchase before 5 p.m. on Friday, December 13th, you will earn 10 bonus Terpoints (Limit 10 Priority Points per account for the special). ). There will be a $15 processing fee associated with each order.

When you place your ticket order through the Maryland Ticket Office, you will have three options for receipt:

Can I sit with a group?
While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to honor group seating requests, every effort will be made to do so.  Fans wishing to sit together must submit their orders at the same time and each group member must indicate with whom they wish to be seated on their ticket application.  Seats will be assigned in order of the person with the fewest Terpoint total in the group.  In the event that a member of the group is not a Terrapin Club Scholarship Fund donor, all seats will be assigned within the non-donor area.

What if I order tickets, and then decide not to go?
Because of the ticket requirements associated with postseason games, we are not in a position to offer refunds or cancellations. Additionally, you may choose to donate your tickets back to our department for use towards an affiliated bowl charity and receive a possible tax benefit. 

I cannot make the game, but would like to purchase tickets and donate them to one of Maryland’s community outreach programs.  Is this possible?
Absolutely! Many times, Bowl game invitations are based on the combination of a team’s performance and also the support of its fans.  We hope to have a large contingent of Terrapin fans at the bowl. However, if you are unable to go, but would like to purchase tickets, please do so.  Let the ticket office know that you will not be attending the game when you are ordering the tickets and we will make certain that youth, law enforcement or military personnel in the Bowl game area benefit from your generosity by receiving your tickets.  . 

In addition to a wonderful sense of pride and community fulfillment, there is also a possible tax advantage to donating bowl tickets, while also helping us sell our bowl allotment.   Please email and a Terrapin Club Scholarship Fund representative will contact you about your donation.
