Available prizes may include exclusive Carolina Fever t-shirts, towels, water bottles, and more.

  • How do I ensure that I earn my points at a Fever event?
    Make sure you have the GoHeels app downloaded on your phone before arriving at a Fever event. Upon arrival, navigate to the Carolina Fever section of the GoHeels app. Once you have entered the stadium refresh the page by either tapping the home icon or pulling down slightly on the page. The app uses GPS to recognize that you are in attendance and your point total at the top of the page should update. Sometimes your GPS location will indicate that you are too far away from the stadium even if you aren't. In that case just keep refreshing until you receive your points. You must arrive and scan in prior to the posted game time to receive your first point. Receive additional points by staying the entire game and opening the app and scanning out after the Alma Mater. Some helpful tips and troubleshooting issues: Make sure your phone is charged, with good internet connectivity, and GPS enabled for the GoHeels app. Sometimes the app will not load immediately (especially with larger crowds); arrive earlier to allow adequate check-in time. Make sure that your points total is accurate and updated before you leave the stadium. If for some reason something goes wrong or you are having an issue, you can come talk to us at games, DM us, or fill out a point correction form to correct your points total.
