ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – ANCHORAGE, ALASKA — The University of Alaska Anchorage will continue to offer complimentary tickets to all regular season UAA home athletic events to federal employees furloughed by the recent shutdown.

Although today’s announcement will provide “temporary” relief to employees effected by the shutdown, UAA Athletics will continue the offer until a firm solution to the budget impasse is announced. 

The first opportunity for federal employees to attend an athletic event will be Friday when the hockey team hosts Michigan Tech. Faceoff is set for 7:07 pm at Sullivan Arena. UAA and MTU will faceoff  again Saturday and the women’s basketball team will host Seattle Pacific at the Alaska Airlines Center Saturday at 7 pm.
