Students Can Give Gift of Razorback Basketball

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Giving back this holiday season is as easy as a few online clicks for University of Arkansas students. Razorback Athletics and the Associated Student Government (ASG) have teamed up to provide returned student tickets to area non-profit and charitable organizations to select Razorback men’s basketball games over the holiday break.

Access Pass holders who are heading home for the holidays may donate their men’s basketball seats back and Razorback Athletics will distribute to local organizations within the Fayetteville and the surrounding communities. Donating seats is easy as a click of a mouse and the entire process can be completed in less than a minute.

Students may click on this link and give back their student admission to as many as four Razorback men’s basketball games that will be played before the spring semester begins including:

Tuesday, December 19 vs. Oral Roberts – 7 p.m.

Wednesday, December 27 vs. CSU Bakersfield – 7 p.m.

Saturday, December 30 vs. Tennessee – TBA

Wednesday, January 10 vs. LSU – 8 p.m.

“As a student, I believe what we often forget is just how blessed we are to call the Northwest Arkansas community home,” ASG President Andrew Counce said. “This place has given so much to us all, and we are very excited for the opportunity relinquish an everyday accessibility in order to provide a memorable experience for kids in our community this holiday season. Opportunities like this make me proud to be a Razorback.”

“During this holiday season, it is important that we continue to do what we can to give back to the community and the state that we call home,” Arkansas head men’s basketball coach Mike Anderson said. “Thanks to our partnership with ASG, the holidays present a great opportunity for students to give back as well as introduce new fans to Razorback Basketball. Our students give us a great home court advantage at Bud Walton Arena, but we realize that during the semester break they may not be able to attend all of our games. So I’m asking our students, who are unable to attend, to make an assist in enriching the lives of others while helping us ensure a great home crowd at Bud Walton Arena.”
