When the Illinois State men’s basketball team hosts its Missouri Valley Conference opener against Missouri State on Wednesday, Dec. 30 at 7 p.m., all Reggie’s Kids Club members have the opportunity to RSVP for one free game ticket per member.

Advance registration for this special event is required by Friday, Dec. 18. The offer is not valid on game day. A special invitation and ticket order form have been mailed to all club members. Parents can fill out and return that mailer to purchase additional discounted $5 upper bowl tickets when reserving the free Reggie’s Kids Club member tickets.

As a special bonus, the first 250 Reggie’s Kids Club members to reserve tickets will also receive a voucher for a Reggie’s Kids Club Super Hero cape. The voucher must be redeemed on game day at the Kids Club Fun Zone located on the south concourse of Redbird Arena. All kids are encouraged to stop by the Kids Club Fun Zone prior to the game to take part in a sugar cookie decorating event courtesy of Denny’s Doughnuts. Papa John’s Pizza will also be available to the first 100 kids to arrive and check in at the Fun Zone, which is open from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m.

Reggie’s Kids Club is sponsored by Papa John’s Pizza and is free to join for kids 12 and younger. Members receive free admission to most home athletic events, a monthly newsletter, special event invitations, and a birthday card from Reggie Redbird. To sign your children up to receive this special offer please, call the Redbird Athletics Ticket Office at (309) 438-8000 or register online at GoRedbirds.com/tickets.
