They have some new plan they put in place a year or 2 ago where depending on where your season tickets are located you need to make a certain donation to the school, I think it was dubbed Team Pittsburgh or something like that. I said "screw that" and didn't renew. I think if you get seats in the endzone or towards the endzones on the sidelines you can skirt this donation thing. Either way I don't like it.
I had seats on the home side line, first row, upper deck and loved them. That is until I found out I was going to have to pay an extra like $150 per ticket to get the same seats the following year. Screw that... Let the rich allumni give to the school, not your average Joe who didn't even go to Pitt aka (ME!)
