Vanderbilt University employees must register to attend the Fan Fest and game at between Feb. 6 and Feb. 26. Please register, even if you plan to attend the pre-game event only.

Tickets can be picked up at the practice gym beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 only; there is no early pickup. All game attendees, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter Memorial Gym. Once you receive your tickets, you are not permitted to leave and re-enter the gym. You’ll need to show your VU ID to pick up tickets.

Please wear black and gold to show your Vanderbilt spirit. Free tickets will not be given to anyone wearing blue/orange apparel or the Gators logo.
