Matt Painter expresses frustration to the referees after a called foul.

The Purdue men’s basketball alumni game will return to Mackey Arena for the first time since 2014. It's set for 11 a.m. Aug. 4

“Our alumni game is one of the highlights of the year, and we are excited to get back into Mackey Arena for this year’s event,” head coach Matt Painter said in a press release. “The three previous games have been outstanding events, and I know our fans are excited to see some of their favorite Boilermakers back in Mackey Arena wearing the Black and Gold."

Tickets will be reserved in the premium seats for $10 each, starting Monday for men’s and women’s basketball premium seat holders. On June 18, the seats become available to John Purdue Club members before going on sale to the public (if available) on June 26.

All other general admission tickets in the lower and upper bowl are free.

In the previous three events, about 50 former Boilermakers and coaches returned for the weekend. Players and coaches will be announced in the upcoming weeks.

Fans who buy their 2018-19 men’s basketball season tickets during alumni game festivities will receive a free Mackey Arena desktop replica (one per account).

The Mackey Arena ticket office will be open 9:30 a.m. to noon for season-ticket sales.

Rosters and more details will be announced later this summer.
