It’s finally here! All the preparations are complete, now it’s time to play the game.

Tonight, the Aggies take on the Mountaineers in the 2017 Armed Forces Classic.

If you’re a ticket holder, come see the game in Hangar 5, Bldg. 3330 on Ramstein Air Base. Doors open at 10 p.m. and attendees must be in seats no later than 11 p.m. to watch the teams tip off the season.

“We are working hard to fill every seat so as many people as possible can enjoy the game,” said Kara Montano, 86th Force Support Squadron Special Event coordinator.

“If you do not have a ticket, it will be first-come, first-served from our stand by line, so you’re encouraged to come early!” said Montano.

In the event that not all issued tickets are utilized, a stand-by line for non-ticket holders will be available. “Also, Ramstein’s Chili’s Too in the KMCC is hosting a watch party if you’re unable to snag a seat at the game itself,” Montano added. 

Ramstein is thrilled at this opportunity, said Brig Gen. Richard G. Moore Jr., 86th Airlift Wing commander.

“This is an opportunity to showcase the men and women of Ramstein Air Base and how we proudly execute the mission, every day, for the most powerful Air Force the world has ever known.”

Check with your first sergeant or unit leadership to see if there are any tickets left. Be at Hangar 5 no later than 11 p.m. All Airmen must be in their duty uniform for the game.
