The good news is that we're getting ready to play a little University of Montana football in Missoula - and it's been quite an adventure to get to this point. We had the 2020 season wiped out and replaced with plans for the Big Sky Conference to play a reduced season in the early part of this year. The Griz ended up withdrawing from from that proposed spring schedule and ultimately ended up scheduling the two games that will be played at Washington-Grizzly Stadium next month.

Fans got some good news last week when it was announced that about 5,000 fans would be allowed into the stadium to see the Grizzlies in action against Central Washington and Portland State. I'm sure the immediate thought that came to mind for many Griz fans was centered around how to get their hands on the limited number of tickets that are being made available.

Questions have finally been answered as UM released details about how tickets will be distributed for the upcoming games. You can check out some of the important details below - and get complete ticket details, new policies and procedures, FAQ's, and gameday info HERE. I wish you luck and hope the ticket gods are on your side as you attempt to navigate the ticket release schedule!

WHAT TO KNOW - DETAILS FROM YESTERDAY'S PRESS RELEASE

Fans are encouraged to log-in to GrizTix.com to make sure their account details are up-to-date with a current email address as the ticketing process for both games will be totally digital.

Tickets will be available to purchase at specified times online only at GrizTix.com.
