MEMPHIS, Tenn. –The University of Memphis Athletics Department announced Friday afternoon that it will offer free tickets to Saturday’s men’s and women’s basketball games. The Tigers men’s team hosts Northwestern State at 12 p.m. (CT) at FedExForum, and the Memphis women’s squad faces former conference rival UAB at 4 p.m. (CT) at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse.
Fans can pick up free tickets at each venue one hour prior to game time. For the men’s game, fans can pick up free tickets from FedExForum’s box office in the arena’s Grand Lobby beginning at 11 a.m. (CT). For the women’s contest, the free tickets are available at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse beginning at 3 p.m. (CT).
Also, for the women’s game, the parking garage located next to the Elma Roane Fieldhouse will be free for all fans.
“With the winter weather in the area, we know it will be difficult for some of our fans to travel to campus or downtown,” said Memphis Director of Athletics Tom Bowen. “We want to do everything we can to provide a raucous homecourt advantage for our teams, and so we are inviting anyone who can safely travel to our games to be our guest and help us cheer on the Tigers.”
Despite the winter weather conditions, both men’s and women’s games will be played as scheduled. Any changes will be posted at gotigersgo.com.
