Season ticket information will be available. Current season ticket holders may renew their season tickets at the event.

The concession stands will be open at the event. Fans also may enter to win Rocket gear from Rocky’s Locker, a 2017 football parking pass, or four tickets to the 2017 home opener.

The Rockets will open the 2017 season at home vs. Elon Thursday, Aug. 31.
