Earlier this week, the Chattanooga Mocs marketing & ticketing operation announced the re-launch of the Mocs Merchants program.

Today comes news of another initiative aimed at helping our community and serviced by the philanthropy of our alumni, fans and donors.

 

The Scrappy Switchback is initiated in 2020-21. It was developed to provide Mocs fans an opportunity to give back to our community by helping to provide underprivileged individuals from around the area an opportunity to attend Chattanooga Mocs home contests.

 

Fans who purchase either season or individual-game tickets to see the Chattanooga Mocs play but are unable to use them for whatever reason, can donate unused tickets to local youth and charitable organizations through the "Scrappy's Switchback" ticket program. It is available in all ticketed seasons for football, women's basketball, men's basketball, wrestling and softball.

 

Donating tickets through the program is simple. Simply contact the McKenzie Arena Box Office at 423-266-MOCS (6627) or via email and a fan relations specialist will assist you with donating your unused tickets to the program and disperse the tickets in this community outreach.

 

There is also the option to purchase season tickets to be directly donated into the "Scrappy's Switchback" network. Fans can click here to buy football, men's basketball or women's basketball season tickets that will be immediately donated to the program upon purchase. Wrestling and softball are added when available.

 

The Mocs are readying for the 2021 fall campaign. Home games await hosting Austin Peay, Western Carolina, ETSU, Furman and The Citadel. It opens on Thursday, Sept. 2, with a visit from the Governors. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

 

To build on top of the optimistic news of the week sitting atop the SoCon Preseason Poll, the Mocs have a special offer for new season ticket buyers. For the remainder of the week, purchasers get $10 off providing $30 general admission seat or $89 for reserved chair back covering the 5-game slate. Use the promo code “NUMBERONE”.

 

The Mocs Club is also getting wrapped up in the excitement of the new season. New members joining for $20.21 become a member at the $100 level. Both promotions run through Friday. Tickets are available by calling (423) 266-MOCS (6627) or online here at GoMocs.com. Fans also can go through the GoMocs app available on Android and Apple IOS devices in their respective app stores
