KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (UT Release) - With the 2012-13 college basketball season fast approaching, Tennessee Athletics invites fans to the annual “Meet Your Seats” at Thompson-Boling Arena Tuesday, Sept. 18. On that day, fans can see the available inventory for both men’s and women’s basketball season tickets and “test drive” seats between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET before committing to season tickets.
Current donors and season-ticket holders also are invited to “Meet Your Seats” to look at opportunities to add or relocate season tickets. Several giveaways will be drawn throughout the day for new season-ticket holders who purchase season tickets on site. Prizes include a 2012-13 men’s and women’s basketball parking pass.
“It’s a special experience to attend a game at the arena, and this approach gives fans a chance to feel some of that game day excitement,” said Chris Fuller, UT’s Senior Associate Athletics Director for Development and External Operations. “In addition, this is a unique opportunity, as this is the only basketball ‘Meet Your Seats’ that will be held prior to the season.”
Free parking will be available in parking lot 5A off Phillip Fulmer Way adjacent to Thompson-Boling Arena. Once parked, fans can follow posted signs to the northeast concourse-level entrance of the arena.
