Plan Game Day & Where To Stay

1. RESERVE HOTEL ROOMS EARLY

The influx of fans to the Eugene - Springfield area fills up area hotels quickly. Here is a list of hotels by proximity to Autzen Stadium. Consider staying in outlaying areas like CoburgCreswell and Cottage Grove. These smaller communities are charming and are within 30 miles of Autzen Stadium via Interstate 5.

2. MAKE YOUR TAILGATING PLANS

Will you be walking, cycling, riding a shuttle or driving to the game? Will you tailgate on-site, at Essig Field or meet up at a local sports bar? 

New this year, Autzen Stadium parking lots will open six hours prior to kick-off (but no earlier than 7 a.m.). And beer and wine will now be available throughout the main stadium, excluding the student section. Additionally, re-entry will no longer be permitted so if you leave to tailgate at half-time, you won't be able to return to the game.

Explore your options and make your transportation and parking arrangements ahead of time for a seamless game day experience. 

3. GET YOUR FAN GEAR

Duck football players are some of the best dressed in the sport! Likewise Duck fans often don color-coordinated apparel. Shop The Duck Store online or at Valley River Center, UO campus or at Autzen Stadium.

Hirons, Fred Meyers and Walmart also stock University of Oregon logo-wear. If the popular colors are sold-out, check the local Goodwill and St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores for Oregon Duck resale.

4. DOWNLOAD THE UO APPS

Not only can you hear the Oregon Marching Band play "Mighty Oregon" on this mobile application (look for the music note in the upper left corner), the UOregon app features a variety of campus self-guided walking tours, parking maps and safety resources.

For those that prefer having a guide, UO student ambassadors conduct campus tours from the Ford Alumni Center.

There is also a Go Ducks Gameday App with live audio and chock full of stats. Use this app to manage your game day tickets. 

5. Show Your Ticket

Use your football ticket for discounts at local restaurants and shops before and after the game.

Clear Bag Example by Taj Morgan

NEW: Clear Bag Policy

A clear bag policy is in effect for all football games. Bags must be see through and no larger then 12 x 12 inches. Only one clear bag is allowed per person.

This means backpacks, diaper bags, coolers, purses, totes or zippered / pocket seat cushions will not be allowed into the stadium. Leave those items in your car, home or hotel, as there is no storage at the stadium.

Clear bags may contain a small clutch or purse for privacy, no larger than 4.5 x 6.5 inches. The Duck Store at Autzen Stadium, Valley River Center and on Campus sells clear totes for $10 to $20.
