What is the relationship between the Stampede, CenturyLink Arena and the other teams that play there?
CenturyLink Arena has quickly become the mecca of professional sports in the Treasure Valley. The Stampede have a great relationship with the arena and are a tenant. There is no ownership stake in the arena from the Stampede.
What can I do if my tickets are lost or stolen?
Due to the bar coding technology on tickets, we are able to provide a replacement ticket to the season ticket holder of record, or to an account share partner who has been designated to receive that benefit by the season ticket holder. Please call your Stampede front office for assistance in re-printing your tickets. In the case of stolen tickets, it is highly recommended that you file a police report with the police agency where your tickets were stolen.
How can I purchase additional season tickets?
You may purchase additional season tickets by calling the Stampede front office at 208-388-4667 and speaking to a ticket representative.
How can I change the name on my season ticket account?
Season tickets under a family name or corporation can be transferred to another account holder. Please call the Stampede front office at 208-388-4667 to transfer seat holder names.
Why do I see different people in the seats next to me each game? I thought that they were held by season ticket holders.
The chances are the seats are held by season ticket holders. Many season tickets are held by companies who use the tickets for employee recognition, client entertainment or other business purposes. Many individual season ticket holders share their tickets with family, friends or co-workers.
Do the Stampede provide parking for fans?
The Stampede do not have reserved parking areas for fans during games. However, there are many convenient parking lots and garages in the downtown Boise area, and all provide free parking for the first hour. Contact the Downtown Boise Association for more information.
What is the Stampede policy if I want to bring my child to a game?
If your child has not yet reached his or her second birthday, a specific ticket is not needed for him or her to access CenturyLink Arena. Your child can sit on your lap to watch the game, provided he or she does not interfere with other ticket holders’ enjoyment of the game. If your child has reached his or her second birthday, you must buy your child a ticket to access the arena.
How are contestants selected for on-court promotions?
Most contestants are selected by Stampede staff from people on the concourses within the first 45-60 minutes after doors open. Some are promotions by our sponsors through retail locations or radio stations.
What if I have other questions?
