Get 'em here: Discount tickets on sale through Tuesday for OVC Tournament

Purchase all-session ticket by Tuesday, Jan. 31 to receive discount

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Planning ahead can save Tennessee Tech basketball fans a little money, and buying locally will allow Golden Eagle fans to stand together when the time comes.

By planning ahead, Tech fans can purchase discounted all-session tickets for the upcoming Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Tournament, set for Feb. 29 through March 3 at Nashville's Municipal Auditorium. An all-session pass gains admittance to every game in the tourney, for both the men's and women's brackets. The cost of an all-session ticket is $80, but if purchased BY TUESDAY, Jan. 31, the cost is discounted to just $60 each.

Here's the only rub -- in order to sit with like-minded Golden Eagle fans, Tech fans must purchase their OVC Tourney tickets from the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center. This applies to both all-session tickets and individual session tickets.

Please note that reserved seating is limited and once a school's allotment is purchased, only general admission tickets will be available.

A $60 all-session ticket includes tickets to all seven sessions of the OVC Championship, which includes seven men's games and seven women's games (seating for women's games is all general admission). Buying a ticket prior to Jan. 31 means each game of the Championship costs just $4.29 apiece.

Beginning this season, the tickets in the lower arena will be assigned via a quadrant seating assignment. That guarantees schools participating in a given session will have the seats closest to the court and grouped with their fans. Fans of schools not participating in a specific session will sit in general admission seats in the upper (balcony) level.

Please call the TTU Athletics Ticket Office to purchase tickets or for additional ticket information. The number is (931) 372-3940.
