Single-game tickets for Tennessee men’s and women’s basketball home games go on sale Tuesday. With both squads expected to enter the year as top-10 teams and several exciting promotions planned, it’s sure to be a fun-filled season at Thompson-Boling Arena.
Though we’re only one week into the month of October, multiple games are less than 1,000 tickets away from being sellouts at UT’s 21,678-seat riverfront venue.
Single-game tickets will be available for purchase on Tennessee’s ticketing website AllVols.com. Pricing varies by game and seating location, with affordable ticket options in the 100-level (lower bowl) ranging from $5 to $30 per ticket.
Fans interested in bringing a group or team to Thompson-Boling Arena to cheer on the Big Orange are encouraged to call 865-974-7000 to inquire about discounted group ticket pricing, available for groups of 15 or more.
Tennessee sold out of the popular Vol Pass ticket option for men’s games last week, but the Lady Vols Pass remains available and is entering its third season as a fan-favorite. The season-ticket alternative offers a ticket to every regular-season home game for just $99—less than $6 per game. Prior to each game, fans are reminded via email to select their seat from the best available inventory, including 100-level seating. Additionally, fans can easily add extra tickets next to their seating location, if available, for any game.
The Double-Double Deal is a two-game ticket and concessions bundle designed to offer Lady Vol fans and families a great view and a great value. The package includes two 100-level tickets and $8 meal vouchers for each game. The bundle, priced at just $45, provides fans a savings of up to $20. The Double-Double Deal is available for marquee matchups between the Lady Vols and Stanford, Notre Dame, LSU, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Missouri.
The customizable Voliday Package offers Big Orange fans the option to select any three games—men’s or women’s—between Dec. 18-30. The $50 package also includes a voucher to enjoy a future game free of charge, excluding SEC matchups on Saturdays, and comes with an exclusive holiday t-shirt.

ARENA ENTRY REMINDER FOR GUESTS
To enhance patron safety, walk-through metal detectors are now in place and operational at all Thompson-Boling Arena entrances.
Tennessee’s Clear Bag Policy is still in place, and all bags will be checked before entrants pass through the metal detectors. There will be signage and staff to help direct fans through the process at each entry point.
Please be advised that this new security measure may add time to the process of entering the arena, so fans are encouraged to allow additional time for entry. Patrons also are encouraged to bring only necessary items with them in order to ensure a smooth and timely arena entry.
