Tickets will be available for pickup on Nov. 9 and Nov. 12 at the John J. Lee Amphitheater, Nov. 12 and Nov. 13 at Ingalls Rink and at the Payne Whitney Gymnasium Box Office from Nov. 15-18.

The Yale men’s basketball home opener against Vassar College on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. will be the first event where tickets will be available for pickup. Fans will be able to pick up their football tickets inside the John J. Lee Amphitheater at halftime.
