If you have not ordered tickets, you will need to buy a ticket and have an Alumni Reception ticket to attend. You can purchase your ticket here and order your free reception ticket here.

Monday is the last day to RSVP to be included in the Alumni Reception in order for New Meadowlands Stadium to properly staff for our event. You will be forwarded an e-ticket for admission to the event early next week.

Here’s the run-down of events for the day:

  • 4 PM — The Cadets Alumni Reception Begins in the Lexus Club on the Mezzanine Level of the stadium. The Corps will be rehearsing so you can grab a few minutes of ensemble, or relax and reconnect in the air-conditioned comfort of the Lexus Club
  • 5 PM — The Cadets Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony honoring the Class of 2011: Susan Erben, Will Higgins, Richard “Scotty” McGarry and Ed Frenzel.
  • 6 PM — The Cadets Alumni Reception concludes as does the 2011 Cadets on-field rehearsal.
  • 6–7:30 PM — The VIP Reception exclusively for the VIP ticketholders (order here) and 2011 Maroon & Gold members is held in the West Hall Club on the main concourse
  • 6–7:30 PM — The Tour of Champions pre-show performances begin, featuring small ensembles and "meet and greet" with members of the evening’s performing corps
  • 7:30 PM — The kick off of the Tour of Champions

Tickets for the Tour of Champions Grand Finale are available at VIP and Super Premium tickets are selling quickly, but there are still plenty of great Premium and Reserved seats still available.
