    Bringing kids to games

    So my wife and I are starting to look at options for us bringing our whole family to games.

    At this point next year my kids would be 8, 5, 2 and under 1. Sitting in the bleachers with all that won't be happening.

    What options for season tickets are there? I know there's the gridiron club and the scoreboard club. Trying to see what amenities are available in some of those places that might allow all of us to make it to games more frequently. I'm in the Bulldog Club with around a 6,000 rank, so not 100% sure what I need to do there to get availability or what pricing might look like.

    We live south of Bham so it's already almost 5 hours round trip for the driving. Just looking for a game day experience that might work for my whole family and wanted some opinions.

    I sit in upper deck east side with 2 under 7. The climate controlled concessions area is really nice for them. We can take them in there at any time and let them roam a bit.

    You are going to have to open the wallet to get 6 seats in the scoreboard club for 6. Never sat in gridiron club for a game , however you would have a cool place to be but it would be like Watching on tv. You'd still have to purchase 6 tickets elsewhere plus the gridiron passes if available. So there really isn't a great option that isn't fairly expensive. Nature of today's beast I suppose

    I read your post and all I could think is "dude- you have four kids!?!" Don't see how you do it.

    You have to have a ticket and the seat fee even for the 1 and 2 year old. I think that's ridiculous, but the University wants to make all the money they can.

    Another option you didn't mention is the East Side Club. I don't know what the seat fee per person is now, but last time we had season tickets, I think for the 2019 season, the seat fee was about $2000 each. And tickets were on top of that. For 6 people you'd be in the $15K range, none of which is tax deductible any longer. On the bright side, you'd build your BDC rank pretty quickly. One the negative side, most likely the best seats available in East Club might be inside the goal line.

    The Gridiron is gonna be the cheapest route if you want a club level. It's $850 a pass and requires a separate game ticket to get in. There was a waiting list so I'm not sure with a rank of 6000 how many people you need to pass. Good thing for you with the current product we have on the field I'm sure they'll be making their way down the list pretty quickly. I've got a 4 yr old and a pretty rowdy 18 month old. Let's just say we've met a lot of new people with their roaming.

    They got this thing called a TV. You may want to buy one and put it in your bedroom before you have another kid.

    I can't do that many kids and enjoy the game. That's cause I have bad kids. Somebody is always complaining- it's too hot, too cold, I want popcorn, I am thirsty, I want desert, and how come I did not get a lemonade. I do 1-kid at a time and no kid when the game is big

    My home games are in perfect Folsom Field, without Ralphie, I would have no break

    That?s why the upper deck is a good option. Cheap tickets. Cheap food and drinks. Climate control concourse with nice bathrooms.
