We have teamed up with Athletics to provide alumni with a special discounted rate on football tickets. You can purchase any available ticket, but we're encouraging Medical School alumni to purchase tickets in sections U 208 or U 209 so that you might be seated near one another.

    Discounts range from $10-$25 off of the ticket price, depending on which seats you select.  Click the button below to purchase tickets at the discounted rate. Note that the discount has already been applied and is reflected in the ticket prices listed.

    NOTE: Football tickets are purchased separately in separate transactions from the Alumni Celebration.  If you want to attend the football game and Alumni Celebration events, please make sure you've completed purchases for both events.
