Buy locally! Get your OVC Tournament Tickets from Tech Athletics

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Fans heading to Nashville this week for the Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Tournament are reminded to purchase tickets from the Tennessee Tech Athletics Ticket Office in order to be seated in the Golden Eagle cheering section.

Tech fans showed phenomenal support for the Golden Eagles Saturday night in Eblen Center, setting a new women's attendance record of 6,512, and backing the men's team with more than 9,000 for the fifth largest crowd in arena history.

"The atmosphere was phenomenal," said Director of Athletics Mark Wilson. "Our fans did a great job of supporting our teams.

"Now, we want to encourage everyone to attend the OVC Tournament in Nashville this week and keep that level of enthusiasm going strong," Wilson said.

The Golden Eagle women play their first game at 2 p.m. Thursday and the men’s team opens play at 6 p.m. Thursday.

To purchase tickets, fans need to buy them from the TTU Athletics Ticket Office in order to sit in the Tech cheering section. If fans wait to purchase tickets at the arena box office, the seats will not be in the Tech section.

The only way to join the Tech cheering section is to visit or call the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center (931-372-3940) and reserve your seats; they will not be available for purchase at the arena. Purchased tickets can then be picked up at the TTU Will Call table at the arena.

Tickets may be ordered through the Eblen Center ticket office up until game time. Tickets purchased through the Tennessee Tech ticket office will benefit TTU financially.

Student tickets are available for $5 each by showing a valid TTU ID card. Students can purchase  tickets at the arena by visiting the Tech Will Call table in the lobby. Students tickets will not be available at the arena box office.
