The Fred Hoiberg era has already begun, but Nebraska fans will get to see Hoiberg on the court inside Pinnacle Bank Arena for the first time on Sept. 27, when the Huskers host “Opening Night.”
Announced Monday, the free event will feature introductions to the 2019-20 version of the Huskers — a team made up of almost entirely new players — a live scrimmage on the newly-redesigned PBA court, comments from Hoiberg, fan contests, giveaways and a musical act (details to be announced at a later date), among other things.
“We wanted to kickoff basketball season with an event that allows our fans to have a good time and get an early preview of our team as we start practice,” Hoiberg said in a release. “We hope this event is not only the start of a new tradition for our program, but also the start of festive weekend with the Husker football team hosting Ohio State the following day.”
Doors will open at 6 p.m. CT with the event beginning at 7 p.m.
Fans can register for lower bowl tickets here as early as Monday, July 15, at 10 a.m. with a limit of four reserved tickets per person. Upper bowl seats will be opened as needed. A limited number of student seats will be held for RedZone season ticket holders, and information on how to reserve tickets for the event will be communicated directly to student season ticket holders.
