Columbia Athletics is excited to offer fun-filled fan promotions during the Ivy League home men's and women's basketball season! Call the ticket office at 888-LIONS-11 for more information about any of the promotions listed.
Things kick off with the annual Faculty & Staff Festival prior to the men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader vs. Cornell on Saturday, January 20. The men’s basketball team will participate in Coaches vs. Cancer: Suits and Sneakers Awareness Week. As a part of the Coaches vs. Cancer initiative, the team will also participate in the 3-Point Challenge for the month of February. Click to learn more and to donate to this important cause!
Additionally, one student will be randomly selected during halftime of the women's basketball game on January 20 to win an airline ticket to anywhere in the continental United States. The student selected must be in attendance to win and will have five minutes to claim his/her prize. If the student selected is not in attendance, the prize will carry over to the next home (women’s/men/either) game.
Exciting promotions continue when the men’s basketball team hosts Harvard on Friday, February 2 and Dartmouth on Saturday, February 3. The series features the annual men’s basketball alumni celebration weekend, including the recognition of the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Ivy League Championship team at halftime of the game against Dartmouth.

Also during the game, there will be not one, but two t-shirt tosses, thanks to the American Heart Association.
