Homecoming FAQs

Everyone (including babies) will need to have a game ticket to enter the stadium. Reserving game tickets in the alumni band block will be open as a part of EARLY Alumni Band Weekend Registration. Register as early as you can as tickets usually sell out before registration closes.

If you have season tickets or plan to obtain your game ticket elsewhere, Alumni Band Weekend Registration will remain open until a month before the game. (See Key Dates above).

Need Tickets? Also see the alumni members’ Facebook Group Page under Ticket Swap. UGA Redcoat Alumni Band Members Only.

Again this year is a unique opportunity to perform “VIRTUALLY” with us if you’re unable to be in Athens to march on the field. By registering, you will receive your commemorative field pass souvenir via postal mail after Alumni Band Weekend. As a donating supporter of the Redcoats, you’ll be counted as a 2024 Alumni Band Weekend participant. Please complete the rest of this registration form, and let us know whether you will be participating “IN PERSON” OR “VIRTUAL”. Note that purchasing tickets in the RBAA band block is not available for virtual performers; as limited ticket availability is for IN PERSON performers and their families.

TV coverage will dictate the game time, and our Alumni Band Weekend event schedule will be adjusted to the start time when the game time is decided. The schedule will be posted in the “What We Know” section above and in Social Media as we get closer to the game date.

To participate on the field at Alumni Band Weekend, musicians must wear the official Alumni Band uniform.  The uniform consists of the Official RBAA RED shirt (Drum Dog or 50th Anniversary logo), black pants, black sox, black shoes (no white soles, no manufacturer’s logos in colors per NCAA rules), and if you elect to wear a hat (not required) it must be the Official RBAA RED ball cap (no other headgear).  Drum Major black shirts are also available.  To order the required shirt and optional hat (shipped direct to your address), see the link in your Alumni Band Weekend confirmation email.
