Athletic Events

All current students receive free admission to all PFW home athletic events with their Mastodon card. To receive free admission, students must present their Mastodon card at the ticket window for sports where the general public is charged for admission (basketball, volleyball and the Soccer Showcase). Free admission to home athletic events includes Men's Basketball games, which are held at the Coliseum.

Mastodon cards are required for discounted admission to student activities and free or reduced admission to athletic events.
