FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas gymnastics fans will have a chance to Meet the Gymbacks on Friday, Nov. 6 when the 2016 team makes an appearance at the Northwest Arkansas Mall Center Court. The Gymbacks and Razorbacks mascots will be available from 7-8:30 p.m. for a meet-and-greet that will include photo opportunities, autographs, and the chance to pick up the official 2016 gymnastics poster.
Promotional materials such as magnets and schedule cards are also available during the event. Representatives from the Razorbacks will be on-hand to assist fans interested with purchasing season tickets for the exciting 2016 home slate.
Arkansas hosts its first meet on Jan. 15 when Georgia comes to Fayetteville. The Bulldogs squeaked out a win last season in Athens, Ga., so the Razorbacks are looking to return the favor as hosts this year. The most intriguing non-conference matchup of the season comes only two days later, as Arkansas hosts Oklahoma on Jan. 17. The Sooners were runners-up to national champion Florida in 2015.
Two other SEC opponents come to Fayetteville this season: Auburn on Jan. 29 and Kentucky on Feb. 26. Utah State, of the Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference, also visits Barnhill this season, rounding out the regular season schedule with a meet on March 11 that will serve as Arkansas’ Senior Night.
Ticket packages start at $25 for general admission, while fans can purchase reserved season tickets for $40. Fans can purchase tickets by calling the Razorback Ticket Center at 800-982-HOGS or 479-575-5151. Additional ticketing information can also be found online.
