To accommodate student ticket needs for the remaining home men’s basketball games, Racer Athletics announces the 2,500 for Five program. 2,500 for Five reflects the goal to have 2,500 students in attendance at each of the remaining five home men’s basketball games.
Implementation of 2,500 for Five begins with the game Saturday, Jan. 28th against Eastern Illinois. The 2,500 tickets reserved for students for this game will be available for pick-up Monday, Jan. 23rd and Tuesday, Jan. 24th. Students with a valid Murray State ID, can stop by Lobby B of the CFSB Center between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Students may bring up to five MSU IDs to pick up five tickets for others.
Any unclaimed tickets by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 24th will be available via the Ticket Office in Lower Level A of the CFSB Center Wednesday, Jan. 25th during regular business hours between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. On Thursday, Jan. 26th all remaining tickets will be available for sale to the general public or claimed by MSU students with a valid ID. The same Monday through Thursday policy will be used for the games Feb. 2nd; Feb. 9th and 11th; and Feb. 18th.
All students must enter through Gate C of the CFSB Center and present both their game ticket and student ID for admission. Racer Athletics advises all students who are interested in attending games to pick up their tickets as soon as they are made available. Once capacity is reached for the CFSB Center, there will be no admittance into the game.
Additionally, students are encouraged to become members of the Stampede. Racer Athletics has partnered with the Student Government Association to provide exclusive spirit items to Stampede members. The cost of a Stampede membership has been lowered to $10 for the remainder of the school year. A limited number of items will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis as members enter the CFSB Center. Stampede members wearing the official Stampede shirt will be admitted into games fifteen minutes before doors open to the public through Gate C only. Doors open an hour and thirty minutes prior to tip off. Stampede members must sign-in at every game they attend to be eligible to win exclusive Stampede prizes, including a grand prize of an Asus laptop, courtesy of Bluegrass Computers. The online sign up form can be found at GoRacers.com under the ‘Fans’ link.
