The University of Tennessee announced it would be offering free football tickets to those evacuating in the wake of Hurricane Florence.
Evacuees can attend Saturday’s game against UTEP free of charge but must provide a valid, state-issued ID for either North or South Carolina.
“Our hearts go out to all the families whose lives have been impacted by the hurricanes and tropical storms along the Atlantic coast,” Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer said.
Residents of North and South Carolina counties that are under evacuation orders can claim tickets starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, September 15. Ticket distribution will close at 12 p.m.
Tickets can be claimed at a marked tent located inside of Toyota Volunteer Village, which is located in the Humanities Plaza on Volunteer Boulevard across from the Torchbearer Statute.
The tickets are available on a first come first serve basis, the department said.
