Knapp Center Reseat ahead of 2022-23 Season

  The Knapp Center is in the midst of the first phase of its renovation project that will result in a new lower level layout. Every seat of the lower level is being replaced and a new seating configuration with a new seating chart will be completed in September 2022.

  The Drake Athletics department will do a full reseat of all season ticket seat locations at the Knapp Center ahead of the 2022-23 Drake men's and women’s basketball seasons. A timeline for the reseating process is referenced below.
What is a reseat?
Reseat is a process where all season ticket holders in the Knapp Center select new seats. Everyone will receive an appointment window when they will select from any available seats in the arena. Appointment windows will be determined by Drake Athletics Priority Points System (
DAPPS). A reseat is necessary due to the renovations currently happening in the Knapp Center. A reseat is a common practice at many collegiate athletic institutions and widely used across the country.
Why is the reseat taking place?
As part of the
Knapp Center renovation, every seat in the lower level of the Knapp Center is being replaced. A new seating configuration will feature a new number of seating sections and seats per row compared to the previous Knapp Center seating chart. As such, a reseat process must occur.

Drake Athletics reviewed many options to create a true home-court advantage as part of an extraordinary student-athlete and fan experience. A full reseat will allow Drake Athletics to achieve the following goals that are central to our mission:

- The reseat provides all fans the opportunity to enhance their seats by reviewing all available inventory and amenities.

- The reseat rewards season ticket holders and donors with priority access to selecting seats during the reseat process based on their Drake Athletics Priority Points System
