The MUSS


The MUSS wins award of excellence! 

For its efforts in building alumni through athletics, The MUSS was awarded a bronze medallion from the The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District VII. The organization, which represents professionals and institutions in the western United States, recognizes the best practices in alumni relations, fundraising, public relations, advancement services, special events, and communications every year. Experts from throughout the district judged entries in various categories and selected gold, silver and bronze winners during a conference in San Francisco in early March.

The MUSS earned a bronze under the categories "Alumni Relations, Student Alumni Initiatives" for its entry "Building Alumni Through Athletics."


2018 MUSS football registration is under way!

Registration for the 2018 Football MUSS started March 30, through the Utah Ticket Office website. To register for The MUSS, you must create an account with your CIS email (for example: u0123456@utah.edu). If you have joined The MUSS or attended an athletic event in the past two years, an account may already exist. Use this link to log in to your account. If you're not sure if you have an account, enter your CIS email and click on the "I forgot my password" link. We strongly suggest you log in and/or create your account prior to registration to make sure you won't have problems on Friday!



MUSS membership is $50, and each MUSS member is allowed to register up to TWO nonstudent guests for an additional $275 per guest (the guest ticket price is determined by the Utah ticket office and is the equivalent of their cheapest season ticket). Please note that if you register TWO nonstudent guests with your membership, you will automatically be seated in the upper bowl, which begins at Row 26. Registering one nonstudent guest will not automatically push you into the upper bowl; your seats will be determined solely on your registration time.

You must be a current U student to register for The MUSS (only students who are admitted to and/or enrolled at the university can register). You must also be planning to take classes during the Fall 2018 semester. If you register for The MUSS as a student, but are not attending classes during fall semester, you will be dropped from The MUSS, and no refunds are given. If you will not be attending classes during the fall, you must have a student register you as a nonstudent guest.

Seating is based on how early you register, so the sooner you register, the better seats you will receive. If you have a group of friends you want to sit with, you must all enter the same group name and in the exact same format during the registration process. Group names must be a minimum of eight characters and a maximum of 20 (spaces count as characters). Each group name must also contain at least one symbol and one number. Group seating is based on the average registration time of the members of the group. Please be careful when copying and pasting a group name into the form. This can sometimes add a space to the beginning or end of your group name that can cause you to not be seated with the rest of your group. All symbols, characters and spaces must be entered in the exact same way to be seated together.

General MUSS FAQs

What is The MUSS?

The MUSS is the University of Utah’s student fan club for a number of the athletics teams on campus including football, men’s and women’s basketball, gymnastics, volleyball, and baseball. Currently, the Football MUSS is the only one with an official registration process. Established in 2002, The MUSS became the most popular student section in the Mountain West Conference and is looking to do the same in the Pac-12. In 2004, it was named one of the Top Five Student Sections in the country by ESPN, and the same honor was given in 2014 by NCAA.com.


Why should I join The MUSS?

The MUSS gives students opportunities at and around athletics events that they normally wouldn’t receive. Football MUSS members receive a reserved seat for each home football game and are invited to attend an exclusive tailgate before each home football game. The tailgates include free food and prize giveaways. Football MUSS members are also given the opportunity to travel to an away game for a discounted price. Each MUSS member also receives a one-of-a-kind MUSS T-shirt. The MUSS provides an exciting and memorable experience for students at athletics events. Students who join The MUSS develop a bond with other students on campus and also with the athletics teams. We hope that MUSS members will become lifelong University of Utah fans!


What does The MUSS stand for?

 
The MUSS is a word taken from the school's fight song. The dictionary definition of muss is a state of disorder, confusion or chaos. The MUSS has also been termed the “Mighty Utah Student Section.”


Who can join The MUSS?

You must be a University of Utah student to join The MUSS. MUSS members are given the option to register non-student guests. If you will not be enrolled in classes during the sport season, you will need to join as a guest.




How do guest memberships work?
 
Guests can be nonstudents, family members, friends, etc. All Football MUSS members, and their guests, will receive a seating assignment in The MUSS section. This assignment will stay the same all season, and members' seating will be adjacent to that of their guests. For other sports without assigned seating, MUSS members and guests may sit in the MUSS section. To enter Rice-Eccles Stadium or the Huntsman Center, you must either present your student ID card (which will be scanned) or use Flash Seats (for MUSS members who prefer, or any member with a guest attached). Members and guests must enter together because the seats are in one account (unless the tickets are transferred to another Flash Seats account, which is subject to a transfer fee). If you need or want to use Flash Seats, more info is located here: http://utahtickets.com/flash-seats. Flash Seats allow you to enter by using the credit card used for the tickets, or you may download an app to a smartphone and enter by using the phone. To create a Flash Seats account, log in to your Utah tickets account and follow the prompts.

NOTE: You must wear your MUSS lanyard to each game or you will be sent to the Standing Room Only section. 


Why do my guests need guest memberships?
 
As a University of Utah student, you pay athletics fees in your tuition; those fees allow you to attend U athletic events for free. Since your guests are not students, and don’t pay the athletic fees, they need to pay to enter the athletic events.
 

How many guests am I allowed to have?

Football: For the 2018 football season, each reserved-seat MUSS member is allowed to register two guests for an additional $275 each. SRO members can register one guest.

Basketball: Each MUSS member is allowed to bring up to four guests to each game for free. Guest tickets can be picked up at the student entrance of the Huntsman Center on game day. 


How are seating assignments determined?

Football: The MUSS seating assignments are based on when you register for The MUSS. The sooner you register, the better seats you will receive.

  • If you create or join a group, the average registration time of the group will determine where you are seated. If your entire group registers on the first day, you will have a better chance of good seats. If a member of your group registers late, it will push your entire group back in the seating chart.
  • If you register two nonstudent guests with your football membership, you will automatically be seated in the upper bowl, which begins at Row 26. Registering one nonstudent guest will not automatically push you into the upper bowl.

Basketball: The basketball MUSS is general admission, so there is no seating chart.

 
 
Does The MUSS provide accessible seating for members with disabilities?

Yes, The MUSS works to accommodate students with disabilities. The student must be registered with the University of Utah’s Center for Disability Services and must meet the ADA requirements. If you require special accommodations, you must notify The MUSS. We will work to fulfill your request, while also taking your registration time into account.
