Belmont University Athletics proudly supports the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and appreciates the enormous sacrifice members of the military and their families make to secure and defend our freedoms.
All active and retired military personnel and their families receive FREE admission to any Belmont home game during the 2012-13 athletic season, marking the eighth consecutive year of the program. This includes men's and women's basketball games at the Curb Event Center, baseball games at Rose Park, and other sporting events.
"The Belmont athletic department is pleased to have this program," said Belmont University Athletic Director Mike Strickland. "The Bruin community greatly respects and appreciates all that armed service members, past and present, do for our country."
Here are details of the Belmont University Athletics Military Appreciation Ticket Program:
- Individuals must possess a valid military photo I.D. Tickets will be limited to the individuals and up to three (3) guests.
- Active-duty and retired members of all branches of the military - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserve - are invited to participate in the program.
