How To Register For The MUSS
Posted on August 2nd, 2013
Before you can register for The MUSS you must activate a student account. You can do this here.
*You must enter your umail address as your email address, and you must use the email with your student ID number. For example: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you activate your student account you can log-into that account here. Again, you must be sure to log-in with your student ID email address (email@example.com). If you log-in with a different email you will not be allowed to purchase tickets.
Once in your account you will click ‘buy tickets’ and then select ‘MUSS Student Registration.’ MUSS membership is $40 and you are allowed to register one non-student guest for an additional $215.
You will have the option to purchase one or two tickets; if you choose two tickets it means you are selecting one student ticket and one guest ticket (the cost for a guest ticket is $215). You will then enter your T-shirt size and after that you will enter your credit card information.
You are no longer allowed to join or create a MUSS seating group. From this point on when you register you will receive the next available seat in The MUSS section.
Ticket distribution will begin on Thursday, August 22 at the Alumni House. Exact dates and times will be announced soon.
MUSS Registration Recap
Posted on April 16th, 2013
Now that the priority period of MUSS Registration has concluded we would like to take this time to provide a little insight and some more details of the process. As many of you know we are using a new registration system this year which we feel will have many benefits in the future. This is the same company the Utah Ticket Office uses so it makes sense for them to handle the MUSS tickets as well.
Unfortunately things did not go as smoothly as we had hoped during registration. The downside of using a new system means there will be some growing pains, which is what we experienced last week. In the end we were able to work closely with the ticket vendor and iron out most of the wrinkles.
We want to emphasize that no alphabetical group will have an advantage over anyone else. We are taking time this week to look over all the data and to equalize the three days. We will re-open registration to all students on Monday, April 22 at noon.
If you did not enter a group name, or were unable to enter a group name, during registration it’s not too late to join a group. Log-into your ticket account and click ‘my profile.’ There is a field for you to enter your MUSS group name. You will pick-up your tickets and T-shirts at the end of August and more details will be sent via email when the date approaches.
We encourage you to attend the Red/White Spring Football game this Saturday, April 20 at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The event is free and you can come practice your 3rd Down Jump! The MUSS Tailgate begins at 9:30 a.m. with free food from Red Robin. The annual MUSS Flag Football Game begins at 11 a.m. and the Red/White Game starts at 1 p.m. and will be televised on the Pac-12 Network. We will split the MUSS section (section 38) down the middle and half will cheer for the Red team and half will cheer for the White team.
MUSS Registration Explanation: A-G
Posted on April 11th, 2013
We understand the frustrations of everyone in the A-G group who tried to register for The MUSS yesterday. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. We have identified the causes of the problems and we believe they have been resolved.
The decision to shut down registration and move A-G to Monday was based on several factors, but the biggest factor was the fact that not everyone in the group was allowed to purchase tickets. When the option to purchase tickets finally did become available many people who had been waiting since noon were never able to buy tickets; they were still getting a page with no ticket options. We did not feel this was fair to all members of the group, especially the members who had been trying to register since noon.
We do realize a handful of you were actually able to get through and purchase tickets; those tickets will be cancelled and you will be refunded. You will need to re-register on Monday at noon. We understand your frustration about getting through the process only to have to do it again on Monday but again, we need to make the process fair for everyone and yesterday was not an even playing field.
Our goal every year is to provide the best experience possible for the students. We are using a new ticket vendor this year because we hoped it would make the registration process better. However, with a new system always comes new surprises. We know this will be a great football season and we thank you for making The MUSS the greatest student section in the country.
2013 Football MUSS Registration Instructions
Posted on April 3rd, 2013
The 2013 Football MUSS registration is featuring an all-new registration system. We are very excited about the stability it will bring. However, the process is different than in years past. Please read and familiarize yourself with these instructions in order for you to register as quickly and efficiently as possible come April 10th.
If you have not already done so, you need to activate your student account before you can begin registering. This must be done by April 9, 2013 or you cannot register the first 3 days. The new system is being run through the ticket office; so in order to purchase MUSS tickets you are required to have a valid student account. If you have not already activated your account, click here. After clicking the link you will be brought to a page that looks like this:
To activate your account, enter your UNID number followed by @utah.edu in the text box and click “Activate”. Your student account will now be activated. If you are to receive a message informing you that your account already exists, do not be alarmed. If you were in the MUSS in previous years you already have a student account. Click the “Password Recovery Link” to set up a password and log into your profile.
This step can be done before the registration date, so it is best to do beforehand in order to save time.
- Log into your account
- Click “My Profile” link
- Create a unique group name in order to ensure that no group shares the same name. There are no passwords for groups this year, so any groups with the same name will be considered one group. Each name should be 8-20 characters long and include 1 number and 1 special character. Be creative, “Utah-utes1” is not a suitable group name.
- Ensure that everyone in your group has set the same group name in their profile.
- On your day for registration, log in and go to profile. Click “Buy Tickets Now” to begin registration.
- There will be a list of sporting event options, click The MUSS link.
- The system has a limited capacity of how many students can be purchasing tickets at one time. If the system is full, you will be brought to a virtual waiting line page that looks like this:
- It is incredibly important that you DO NOT REFRESH THIS PAGE! If you refresh the page, you will lose your place in line and have to start over. DO NOT REFRESH. The system will automatically transfer you to the purchase page when it is your turn to purchase tickets.
- Once out of the line you will come to a page that looks like this:
- From the drop down box, select your ticket and a guest ticket if you desire one.
- Click “Reserve Tickets”. Once you have clicked this button, your MUSS registration time stamp has been recorded.
- You will then be brought to a page that looks like this:
Use the drop down box to select your MUSS t-shirt size. In the text box enter your group name, and guest shirt size. Ex: “men’s large, Utah-utes1”. Please take your time in making sure all the information is correct. Your time stamp has already been recorded, there is no need to rush.
- Click green “Confirm Reservation” button.
- You will be brought to a payment page. Make sure all the information is correct and click “Confirm Order”.
- Enter your billing information and click “Make Payment”.
- Congratulations you are registered for the MUSS 2013 season!
