Donor Based
Seating & Parking


Donor-Based Seating (DBS) is used for both football and basketball as a method to help increase funding for athletic scholarships for Boston College student-athletes. At the same time, DBS rewards donors to the Flynn Fund by providing them with season ticket options in the prime areas of both Alumni Stadium and/or Conte Forum. The program requires an annual, per-seat contribution in order to retain seats within these specified sections. One’s gift also qualifies them for on-campus parking.

Fans purchasing seats in donor-based sections enjoy the very best sideline views as well as a padded seat cushions and several other amenities like discounts on concessions and the BC bookstore.

Seats in all donor-based sections are currently available for the minimum donation requirement per seat. This gift also qualifies for on-campus parking.

  • Sections S, Q & C: $750 per seat
