Beginning with the 2007-08 Men's Basketball season, Seton Hall Athletics implemented a priority seating program which required an annual per seat donation on season tickets in Prudential Center. Priority seating asks that each season ticket holder make a specific per seat contribution, pre-determined by the sections in which they hold seats, which is in addition to the cost of the season ticket.

All monies generated through the additional seat donation go directly to the Pirate Blue Athletic Fund to support our programs by providing funding for individual sport programs, equipment, team travel and upgrades to the athletics facilities. The generosity of our donors ensures that our student-athletes are able to effectively compete in both the BIG EAST and national arenas.

In addition, by making the seat donation each season ticket holder's contribution is counted toward their annual Pirate Blue membership thus making them eligible for benefits that are commensurate to their level of contribution. Also, all the monies contributed by each account holder via the seat donation are counted for priority points.

The order in which season ticket holders are assigned their seats will be determined by individual point total and percentile rank relative to other season ticket holders within a designated section. For example, a season ticket holder whose point total ranks in the 99th percentile within their selected contribution level (the top 1 percent of point totals) will be placed in the first group to select their seat location.

Seton Hall men's basketball season ticket holders accrue points based on the following criteria:
