AgNet Media is proud to join University of Florida (UF) Athletics and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) to promote the 2016 Agriculture and Gardening Day at UF, when the Gators play University of Missouri Tigers at UF’s homecoming football game, October 15, 2016.

The staff at AgNet Media are
excited to support an event organized to show appreciation for the dedicated men and women of the agricultural industry.

AgNet Media owner, Gary Cooper, says, “This is a great opportunity to make agriculture’s presence known at this popular annual homecoming event. Not only does the special promotion allow agriculture people and businesses to enjoy great deals on good seats for homecoming, but it gives agriculture a good chance to make a positive public impact while raising scholarship money for IFAS at the same time.”

Jack Payne, UF senior vice president for agriculture and natural resources, says, “The industry is second only to tourism in Florida, and this is a great way to honor and recognize those who work so hard to put food on our tables and plants and flowers in our yards.”

Anyone with ties to the agricultural industry, including farm families and friends, is invited to participate in the ticket discounts. Starting July 27, game-day tickets will be on sale at special discount prices to those who register online at a special Ag Day Tickets online link. To get the ticket discount, use the promo code AgDay2016.

Tickets range from $20 to $35 for upper end zone reserved seating. This year, there is also an exclusive discount for premium seating in the Evans Champions Club. Please contact about ordering Champions Club game tickets or special business group opportunities.

“Fans who buy early will be able to get the best seat locations in the Ag and Gardening Day sections of the stadium,” says Matt Sanchez, general manager for ticket sales for University Athletic Association. “Act now to secure your place in The Swamp before this game sells out.”

Attendees are invited to the various family activities that will be set up on campus near the stadium before game kickoff. Details can also be found at the website. Additionally, many regular fans from agriculture circles can be found tailgating in the parking areas around the stadium on game days.

AgNet Media encourages everyone who is involved in agriculture to come out and participate in the event. It’s a chance to connect with industry friends and neighbors from all over the state, and UF alumni from all over. This day will be filled with fun activities for all ages, and a chance for the agriculture community to make its presence known to the public while cheering on the Florida Gators.
