RENO — The University of Nevada launched its football season-ticket renewal process and announced a number of new initiatives to enhance the football gameday experience at Mackay Stadium beginning this fall.

Season-ticketholders from 2019 should receive the 2021 Nevada Football Season Ticket Brochure via email with instructions on how to renew tickets, and doing so online is the most efficient method.

Those who may have questions or who need assistance can contract the ticket office at 775-348-PACK (7225) or by emailing at

Fans who were not season-ticketholders in 2019 and who wish to place a deposit on new season tickets for the 2021 season can do so for just $50 by visiting

The department is working with local health officials to determine capacity at Mackay Stadium for the Silver and Blue Spring Game, which is scheduled for noon on May 1. 

Those who have already renewed their season tickets or placed a deposit on new season tickets will have first availability at purchasing a ticket for the spring game.

The Wolf Pack is optimistic for a full and exciting season beginning this fall and has been working on new initiatives to the gameday experience at Mackay Stadium. This process has been years in the making and developed, in part, based off of feedback from fan surveys in previous seasons.

Complete details are still being finalized and more enhancements are planned for coming seasons.

Among the new 

features for 

the 2021 season

• A new all-fans-welcome tailgating experience called the We Are Nevada Fan Zone near Jensen Plaza north of Mackay Stadium, with food trucks, live entertainment and more!

• A revamped in-game production with new videoboard features, promotions, giveaways and fan experiences.

• Affordable tickets and payment models as the department has lowered the cost of tickets in 100 percent of the seating areas in Mackay, and is offering payment plan models.

• Full digital ticketing to make the sales and transfer process more efficient and fan-friendly.

• Reduced costs on some concession items throughout the stadium and increased efficiencies to purchase concessions

• A new customer service initiative called Ask Alphie to make parking and stadium maps more easily available, answer questions and add a new level of information and service for Wolf Pack fans.

The department has also worked with the marching band and the Associated Students of the University of Nevada (ASUN) to move the student section and the band to the south end zone and southeast corner of the stadium to enhance the student experience and overall environment inside the stadium.

The Wolf Pack football team is coming off a 7-2 record in the abbreviated 2020 season, which included a dominating win over Tulane in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

 Nevada returns junior quarterback Carson Strong, the reigning Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year. 

The Wolf Pack also brings back first-team All-Mountain West selections Romeo Doubs (WR), Cole Turner (TE) and Brandon Talton (PK); second-team All-MW picks Toa Taua (RB), Aaron Frost (OL), Dom Peterson (DL), Sam Hammond (DL), Lawson Hall (LB); and six All-MW honorable mention players from 2020 in Jacob Gardner (OL), Tyler Orsini (OL), Jermaine Ledbetter (OL), Julian Diaz (P), Tyson Williams (DB) and BerDale Robins (DB).

Nevada opens the 2021 season on Sept. 4 at Cal and the Mackay home opener is Sept. 11 against Idaho State.
