Priority Parking

Priority Parking has quickly become the most desired and popular benefit of Cowboy Joe Club membership.

The tailgating atmosphere and new requests for premium parking have been tremendous over the past several years and we want to encourage this trend to continue! However, we want to make sure we are providing a quality experience for all of our donors in these lots.


Priority Parking Benefits are available to all Cowboy Joe Club members who make their annual contribution by June 15th.

Priority Parking Allocations are based on current year giving level as well as priority point total. DONORS MUST REQUEST THEIR PREFERRED PARKING LOCATION BY JUNE 15TH. A best available parking permit and/or last year’s parking allocation will be assigned if there is no request. FOR PRICE AND LOCATION BREAKDOWN, PLEASE CONTACT THE COWBOY JOE CLUB OFFICES. THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES AS TO LOCATION, AND ALL LOTS ARE ASSIGNED DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY AND PRIORITY POINT STATUS.

AA and D parking allocations will receive an assigned parking place for the entire 2022 football season and 2022-23 men’s and women’s basketball seasons.

AA, D, Ford Stadium Preferred and Tailgate Alley lots are considered “premium lots” and will be designated for CASH CONTRIBUTIONS ONLY. GIK donors may qualify for IPF, Ford Stadium, Summit View, H, X, VA and Brown Lots.

Tailgate Alley parking requests are made directly through the Cowboy Joe Club. Request must be made by June 15th and priority will be given (1) based on previous years’ allocation and (2) priority points. FOR PRICE AND LOCATION BREAKDOWN, PLEASE REFER TO PAGE 11 of the Donor Guide.

RV Parking is available by request and will be allocated based on current year giving level, availability, as well as priority point total in the Ford Stadium Lot, IPF Lot or Summit View Lot. RV parking in these lots requires a RV permit and requires the minimum donation to be met. Motorhomes, fifth wheels and trailer along with the vehicle must be confined to the designated space. Additional RV Parking is available in the North Lot (Brown RV). Any pass holding member can access the North Lot (Brown RV). If more than one space is required due to the size of your RV, it will be mandatory to hold more than one pass.

Additional passes can be obtained through a second CJC membership or a giving level of $3,000 or more in the current year. RV pass holders will receive a parking pass which must remain in their vehicle and be present and visible at all times.

Tailgating is not only allowed, but encouraged, in all Cowboy Joe Club permitted lots. Open Container lots for 2022 include the AA, Ford Stadium, FA, H, IPF, X, Summit View, Cowboy Field, and North Lot (Brown RV). The open container policy runs up to kickoff. Parking is available as early as 5:00 PM the day before home football games and can be coordinated by contacting the Cowboy Joe Club office at 307-766-6242.

Parking Requirements shown are the minimum contributions necessary to be considered for any given lot and still does not guarantee that you will receive a permit for that location. Due to the variation in availability and the number of requests received, your priority point total plays a critical role in the final allocation of permits.

Priority in the Ford Stadium and Summit View lots will be given to season ticket holders who meet the minimum donation requirement as long as both the donation and lot request are received in the Cowboy Joe Club office prior to June 15th. Priority point total will decide the allocation of any remaining inventory.
