For the convenience of our Parents and Families, online registration is available (see the top link on the left-hand side of this page). (Please note that online registration does not work well with smart phones and IPads).

Purchasing your event tickets ahead of time will ensure a quick check-in where tickets and other information can be picked up either Friday evening, September 22, or Saturday, September 23.  PFW check in will be located on the 1st floor of the Downing Student Union, (tickets purchased through PFW Registration will not be available for pick up at the Football Ticket Office or the Will-Call Window at Diddle Arena).  

So, bring your tailgating items and get ready to show your Hilltopper Spirit!  We look forward to seeing WKU students, parents, and family members on Saturday, September 23, 2017 as the WKU Hilltoppers host the Ball State Cardinals!
