Priority Points System
Priority points provide an equitable method of allocating Red Raider Club Benefits that exist in limited quantities. In addition to making a lifelong investment into a Texas Tech student-athlete, your gift provides you increased access to Red Raider Club Benefits. The priority point system’s purpose is to offer fair access to high-demand/low-supply benefits to our faithful Red Raider supporters.
Examples of benefits that are impacted by your priority point total include:
- Away game football tickets
- Individual game home football tickets
- Bowl game tickets
- New or additional season tickets for all sports
- Ticket pre-order opportunities
- Season ticket upgrades
- Stadium Club seat and suite options/waiting list placement
- Priority donor parking
- Big 12 and NCAA tournament event tickets
- Red Raider Club special events and other privileges
Each Red Raider Club member has a priority point total as determined by:
- Financial contributions to Texas Tech Athletics
- Season tickets purchased
- Letter winner and alumni status

How the Priority Points Program Operates
Red Raider Club priority points are not “cashed” or “spent.” They continue to accrue as you make additional donations to the Red Raider Club and purchase/renew season tickets. The system rewards donors for their ongoing commitment to Texas Tech Athletics by providing individuals with the highest cumulative point total improved access to desirable items that exist in limited amounts.
Priority Points are automatically updated in our database each time you purchase a season ticket or make a donation to Texas Tech Athletics. Each donor's priority point rank constantly adjusts as both you and other donors make additional donations and/or purchase additional season tickets.
How to check your Priority Points
You may check your points online at any time via DonorNet, your on-line access to your Red Raider Club account.
- The Priority Points system recognizes only payments received, not pledges.
- There are a variety of methods to make your gift. Donations may be paid with flexible options such as annual, quarterly or monthly payments. You may choose to pay via credit card, bank draft or payroll deduction (Texas Tech System employees only).
- Endowment donors are considered active members of the Red Raider Club based on the term of their endowment agreement.
- The cost of tickets does not affect your priority point total. However, the number of years as a season ticket holder and total quantity of season tickets do impact your priority point total.
