Employees of Duke University and Health System can reserve up to four free tickets to Duke’s home football game against North Carolina Central University scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Sept. 22. But if you’re interested, you need to act now.

All remaining free tickets are for single seats spread among reserved seating sections. With more than 20,000 free tickets already claimed, the allotment of general admission seats has been exhausted.

The free tickets, which are part of the Duke Football Employee Kickoff Celebration, can be ordered by benefit-eligible employees until 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14. After that, anyone wishing to attend the game can order tickets at the regular price.

If you reserved seats for game but will be unable to attend, contact the Duke Athletics ticket office at 919-681-2583 so the tickets can be redistributed to other fans.

Each free game ticket includes a free meal voucher for concessions at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium. The celebration, which starts at 12:30 p.m., features music, face-painting and interactive kid-friendly activities.
