The UB Community Care Ticket Program UB Community Care Ticket Program

The UB Athletics Community Care ticket program provides eligible non-profit agencies, qualified charitable organizations and disadvantaged youth groups in Western New York the opportunity to experience the thrill of attending big-time college athletic events.

Through the generosity of our Community Care sponsorship program over 4,000 residents of Western New York are able to attend each UB Football home game played at UB Stadium.  Tickets for select UB Basketball games played in Alumni Arena are available throughout the season as well. 


How can my agency, charity or group request Community Care tickets?

The UB Community Care ticket program makes direct contact with representatives of eligible non-profit agencies, qualified charitable organizations and disadvantaged youth groups.  

All ticket distributions are made within NCAA guidelines.  Ticket requests are made in advance of game dates.   Corporate Community Care Tickets are not to benefit an individual of “recruitable” age (grades 9-12, junior college, prep school).  If your agency works specifically with students in this age group please call us for more information on how you can attend a game.

Thanks so much for the generosity and opportunity. What a great way to support our local school and teams and build community; I and my guests enjoyed the games, the environment and cheering for the Bulls."Laura Greene
Catholic Charities Western New York
It is very generous indeed of UB to provide our employees here at Lake Shore such a kindness to be able to attend these family orientated games. Many of our employees have enjoyed and expressed gratitude for being able to attend these games for free! I would like to personally thank the University at Buffalo on behalf of Lake Shore Behavioral Health. Andrea Rosario

There is nothing like watching the face of a child who has never been to a game to be cheering and so full of joy for the Bulls. It helps to teach them about supporting your community and educates them too.Carmaletta Morlock-Zandi

Gateway Longview
This was the first year that Gateway-Longview offered these tickets to our employees, and they were a huge hit! Employees requested over 300 tickets to the Basketball and Football games for the 2016-2017 season. Being a not for profit agency we don't always have the means to offer additional benefits like this to our employees, so thank you UB for providing us this opportunity!Erin E. Brice, PHR, SHRM-CP
Vice President Human Resources, Gateway Longview
Thank you to everyone who make the free UB tickets possible. It allows a positive, safe, and fun environment for everyone to enjoy. Opportunities like this are needed for friends and family to come together in a positive social atmosphere. Again, many thanks!Curtis Steed
