College athletics

UD to no longer require donations: The University of Delaware will no longer require fans to donate in order to gain access to season tickets and parking at athletic events.

The change comes after the federal government’s implementation of the new tax law, which eliminated the tax deductibility on donations related to athletic tickets and parking. Such donations were previously 80 percent tax deductible (known as the 80/20 rule).

Renewal packets will be mailed the first week in February and football season tickets officially went on sale Feb. 1. Representatives will be on hand to assist with questions regarding season tickets and parking at the Football Signing Day event on Feb. 7 at Mitchell Hall. The event is open to the public.
