Young Alumni Tip-Off Tailgate, Tour, and Basketball Game


Saturday, March 9


It’s Basketball Time in Tennessee, with a taste of Football, too!

Join us on Saturday, March 9, for an exciting day in Big Orange Country, which includes:

•    A welcome reception and pep talk from Tennessee Football VFL Coordinator Antone Davis
•    Exclusive tour of the brand new Tennessee Football Training Center
•    Discounted tickets for the men’s basketball game between the VOLS and Missouri

We’ll meet in the UT Football Hall of Fame area in the Neyland Thompson Sports Center, where we’ll hear from Football VOL FOR LIFE Coordinator, Antone Davis. After the program, we’ll be taking an exclusive tour of the brand new, state-of-the-art Football Training Center. Then, we’ll head across the street to Thompson-Boling Arena to watch Cuonzo Martin and the Vols battle new SEC-rival, Missouri, on “Senior Day,” the last home game of the regular season.

To add to the excitement of the day, it’s also opening day for the Vols football team’s spring practice!

Cost for the event is only $15 per person and includes parking for the game, appetizers, the event program, tour, and the chance to win some great door prizes, including autographed basketballs by UT Head Basketball Coach Cuonzo Martin and Lady Vols Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt. This price of the event DOES NOT INCLUDE basketball game tickets.
