PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Calling all Eds, Edwinas, Ediths, Edgars, Edmunds, Jordans and Jordanas in Edison and everywhere! The exciting 2013-14 men’s basketball promotional calendar begins this Friday (Nov. 8) when the Scarlet Knights host Florida A&M at 7:30 p.m. on “Eddie Night.” Any fan with a variation of “Ed” or “Jordan” to begin their name will receive a free ticket at the Rutgers Athletic Center Box Office that evening prior to tip-off with proper identification.
All fans will receive a complimentary team poster at this Friday’s game versus the Rattlers, which marks Eddie Jordan’s first regular season game at the helm.
In addition to “Eddie Night,” Rutgers has also added “Post Game Foul Shots” and “Football Ticket Discount Night” to the promotional calendar.
Post-Game Foul Shots are available to children ages five through 12 and will take place after the men’s games versus William & Mary (Nov. 23) and Cincinnati (March 8). Interested participants should meet in the south west corner court level at the end of the game.
On Football Ticket Discount Night, any fan that presents a Rutgers Football ticket at the men’s basketball game versus New Jersey rival Seton Hall on Dec. 8 can purchase a ticket for just $15.00. The football ticket stub does not have to be from the 2013 season. Whether you bring the ticket from your first Rutgers Football game or your favorite Rutgers Football game, any ticket stub will allow you to receive the discount. In addition, fans wearing Rutgers Football jerseys will be entered into a raffle to win an autographed Kyle Flood football. Any fan that presents a Rutgers Football bowl ticket stub, or paraphernalia, will be entered into a raffle to win a Rutgers Football Experience Package. Other contests will include prizes for the Rutgers fan that presents the oldest ticket stub and the ticket stub from the Rutgers Football game furthest from Piscataway. To enter raffles, fans must visit the Rutgers Marketing table, located on the concourse of the RAC prior to tip-off.
