Football Parking

A season parking pass ($210) for MSU Football home games is one of the many benefits available to Spartan Fund donors. Eligibility to request a season parking pass requires a minimum gift of $250 (Sparty Club). Any contribution towards MSU Athletics, including football zone seating gifts, intended for the 2016 fiscal year (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016) will be accumulated to provide a Spartan Fund donor level and corresponding benefits beginning on July 1.

Requests for donor parking must be submitted by June 30, 2016.  If you have questions regarding parking for the upcoming season, or your current membership level as it relates to qualifying for specific lots, please contact the Spartan Fund at (517) 432-4610.

Donors who request a parking pass by June 30, 2016 will be provided the ability to self-select their parking location, in Spartan Fund donor priority order, utilizing an online service. Conducted in August, 2016, the online parking selection will provide donors the ability to select their own parking lot assignment and earlier knowledge of their parking location prior to the season.

Each donor requesting a parking pass will be provided an appointment date and time – distributed via email – prior to the online selection. Appointment times will be determined in Spartan Fund donor priority order, first by Spartan Fund donor level, then by Spartan Points within each level – meaning Directors level donors will select their parking lot assignment prior to Honorary Coaches donors, Honorary Coaches donors prior to Captains Club donors, and so on.


  • Your Spartan Fund membership must be active as of July 1, 2016, for you to be eligible for priority parking.
  • Football priority parking is based on a donors cumulative giving to athletics from July 1, 2015 thru June 30, 2016.
  • All donor parking is reassigned on an annual basis, allocated based on the Spartan Fund Donor Priority System, first by Spartan Fund membership level, then by Spartan Points within each level.
  • For the best chance at receiving your top choice, we suggest being at the highest donor level within the corresponding zone.
  • Requesting a parking pass cannot be guaranteed due to demand nor can specific lot choices be guaranteed. If we are unable to accommodate, a refund for the parking pass will be issued ($210). Per policy, a refund will not be issued for any donations made.


  • Honorary Coaches level and below donors will be issued 1 parking pass per account.
  • Directors level and Scholarship Level donors may request 2 passes at $210 per pass (never guaranteed). Passes may be allocated as 1 pass in Zone 1, and 1 pass in Zone 4, OR 2 passes in Zones 3 or 4.

Parking for RVs longer than 30 feet will be located in the public parking area Lot 92 located off Service Road. The public parking lots are on a pay per game basis (no season pass is available).

Lost, Stolen, or Destroyed Passes

Parking passes which are lost, stolen, or destroyed will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Replacement passes may be subjective to a charge equivalent to the price of a season parking pass. If original parking passes are recovered, unused parking passes can be returned no later than 10 days after the last day of the regular season for a refund.
Any parking pass deemed as a duplicate or a forgery will be reviewed with the original parking pass forfeited for the remainder of the year without refund. Offenses may result in the loss of parking privileges for future seasons.
