Athletics to offer students free Horizon League Tournament tickets

Oakland University’s athletic department will be providing all-session tickets for the Horizon League Tournament to the first 400 students in attendance at the men’s basketball home game against Milwaukee this Thursday, Feb. 11. The game starts at 7 p.m.

“With the Horizon League tournament coming to Detroit at Joe Louis Arena, we jumped at the opportunity to invest in our students and purchase 400 session passes,” Director of Athletics Jeff Konya said. 

“We know that the Grizz Gang is the best student section in the Horizon League, so there is no better way to say thank you than to provide our students with the experience of the Horizon League tournament.”

Students must present a valid Oakland ID and are limited to one ticket each. 

The league office announced in May  of 2015 that it forged a five-year agreement with Olympia Entertainment to hold the tournament at Joe Louis Arena. The tournament will take place March 5-8. 

All-session tickets through TicketMaster cost $75 for lower bowl and $45 for upper bowl using the Oakland fan discount. The ticket will get students into each tournament game Oakland plays in.
