Drake Athletics will be allowing a limited number of Drake University students to attend Drake basketball and football games this season. Tickets will be free for students and will be chosen on a lottery basis.


  • Each student interested in attending the game must request their own ticket.

  • Students can sit in pods of four (4).

  • All student tickets will be located in the student section.

  • Please make sure to find three (3) fellow Drake Students who are not currently in isolation or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to attend the game with you – with limited inventory we want to make sure we are fully using the tickets to the games. The student that is selected to attend the game will have access via the AXS Mobile App to transfer three (3) tickets to other Drake University students to attend the game with you in your pod of four (4). 

  • If you or your friends are feeling ill or are not able to attend, you can transfer your ticket via the AXS Mobile App to a fellow Drake student.

  • Information on how to transfer tickets can be found here: DrakeTix.com/axsmobileid


  • Download the Dog Pound Student Rewards app (Apple/IOS, Android). 

  • Wait to receive a push notification via the that will inform you when the ticket request window is open and will provide you the link to the form that needs to be completed each week.

  • Students will have a set amount of time (typically 24 or 48 hours) to complete the ticket request form. Some exceptions may apply based on the game schedule.

  • Once the request window has closed, students will be randomly selected through a lottery system to attend games for that week.

  • If you are selected to attend a game, you will be notified via an email from spike@drake.edu and given more details at that time.

  • When completing the ticket request form, please select as many games as you are interested in attending for that week as you may not receive tickets to any or all of the games pending the number of tickets requests received.


If you receive tickets, the tickets will be provided to you via your Drake email address through our ticketing system. This year, all tickets are digital so you and your three friends will need to download the AXS Mobile App (Apple/IOS, Android) in order to access the tickets and be admitted into the Knapp Center.


Those students selected to attend a game must abide by all Drake University policies, Knapp Center and Drake Stadium policies including watching your distance with other people, wearing a mask and washing your hands. If you are sick do not come to the game. To review all of the COVID-19 information visit DrakeTix.com/eventinfo.
