The Kennesaw State football program is the latest to show support for those along the East Coast who are being impacted by Hurricane Florence. On Thursday, Sept. 13, the university announced that all residents with a valid North Carolina and South Carolina ID who are being forced to evacuate their homes can receive a complimentary ticket to Saturday’s game against Alabama State.
Saturday’s game marks the home-opener for the Owls.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this hurricane,” said Director of Athletics Milton Overton in a statement released by the university. “For those families displaced by the storm and seeking shelter here in northwest Georgia, we welcome you to our home and hope that a few hours of college football can provide a sense of normalcy during this difficult time.”
Here is how you can obtain the free tickets if you qualify:
Those affected can come to the stadium ticket office starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, show a valid North Carolina or South Carolina identification and receive a complimentary ticket. Guests accompanied by their children will also receive a ticket for the kids. A limited supply of tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
Fans looking to receive a complimentary ticket are encouraged to park in the Grey Lot ($15 on gameday). For those making your way to the stadium, here’s five things you need to know, including the clear bag policy at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.
Kickoff at Fifth Third Bank Stadium is set for 5:00 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
