As always, admission for everything is free. Parking however, it not. Pioneer HS will be available for a fee. You can probably find free parking in pockets around the stadium, though.
Also, since I've heard some rumblings, there will not be autograph availabilities. That only takes place at the fan event in August.
Here's the official UM donation press release:
Michigan Football and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital have teamed up once again. Since 2010, the Spring Game has raised nearly $1 million for the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. Fans can make a donation of choice to the Mott Children’s Hospital upon entering the gates of Michigan Stadium. Donations are accepted at any level but fans will receive giveaways for donating at the following levels, while supplies last:Weather is always hit or miss, and right now it's way too early to predict how it's going to be. A sunny day in the 60's would be ideal. If that happens, a record crowd is likely. If it's a good chance of rain and high-40's, probably just the die-hards will make it out.
$5 – An authentic Spring Game jersey patch identical to those worn by the players during the 2013 Spring Game
$10 – Spring Game cinch backpack
$20 – Mott stadium bench seat cushion, approved for regular-season use
$250 – Four (4) passes to a preseason football practice (tentatively scheduled for Aug. 24)
