Know Before You Go: Vanderbilt

Salute the Troops

Football is back at home on Saturday hosting Vanderbilt with kickoff set for 12:03 p.m. Check out some of the things happening at Saturday’s game.

Salute the Troops & Seats for Soldiers

It’s our annual Salute the Troops game. Be sure to stay in your seats at halftime for the annual Salute the Troops halftime show where we’ll honor all active duty soldiers, veterans and those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

It’s also not too late to support the Seats for Soldiers program presented by Dominion Energy. The Seats for Soldiers program is designed to provide active-duty service members and their family the ability to attend the Vanderbilt football game for free. Fans are able to purchase Seats for Soldiers tickets for $25 and those tickets will be donated to members of the military and their family. The first 100 fans to purchase at least 4 of the Seats for Soldiers tickets will receive a Patriotic Block C hat. As part of being the presenting sponsor, Dominion Energy will also match fan donated tickets for the game.
