HAMDEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac University Athletics and the QU Spirit Group are working together to host a special ticket promotion on Friday, Dec. 6, 2013. The QU Spirit Group will be giving out vouchers for FREE TICKETS to future Quinnipiac athletic events at the men's and women's Basketball MAAC openers on Friday night – with all the action beginning at 6 p.m. from the TD Bank Sports Center.

In order to receive a FREE TICKET to the first game of the nationally-ranked Quinnipiac men's ice hockey team's 2013-14 ECAC Hockey Tournament series (Date, TBD) and a FREE TICKET to the men's basketball team's second game against Fairfield at Harbor Yard (Thursday, Feb. 13), students will need to be in attendance for both the men's and women's basketball games on Friday night.

The women's basketball team opens the doubleheader against reigning MAAC Champions Marist at 6:00 p.m., which will be followed by the men's basketball game against Fairfield at 8:30 p.m. Both events will be aired live nationally on ESPN3.com.

In addition, as part of Quinnipiac's celebration of the Bobcats' first MAAC Men's and Women's Basketball games, Quinnipiac Athletics and the TD Bank Sports Center will offer $1 tickets to all Quinnipiac season-ticketholders, summer campers and faculty/staff. The first 500 fans to the women's basketball game and the first 1,500 fans to the men's basketball game will also receive a FREE T-SHIRT.

The following bracelet system will be used to assure that students come to both games, AND are present throughout each game's entirety.

Phase 1: Students have to check in at the table in the back of the arena at halftime of the women's basketball game and receive a pink (color may change) bracelet.
