YPSILANTI — Eastern Michigan University supporters will celebrate the first TRUEMU Night of the year on Feb. 23 as the Detroit Red Wings take on the New York Rangers. Game time is 7 p.m. TRUEMU Nights are a great way for fans to show their support and appreciation of Detroit, the Red Wings, and EMU.

The special ticket package for EMU includes:

  • A ticket to Red Wings vs. New York Rangers.
  • A one-of-a-kind co-branded Red Wings/EMU hat.
  • A donation to the EMU Student Emergency Fund.

"The Detroit Red Wings are playing fun hockey this year and fighting for a spot in the playoffs. The team has a lot of talent and we're looking forward to getting the Eastern Michigan University community behind them," said Walter Kraft, vice president for communications. "We always have great interest in our TRUEMU Nights. Eastern fans will get to experience Little Caesars Arena and have their photo taken with Swoop. Most exciting for many is the limited supply of a unique co-branded Red Wings/Eastern Michigan hat that all attendees who purchase tickets through the EMU package will receive at no additional cost. All this, plus every ticket includes a $5 donation to the Student Emergency Fund. It's a fun night AND it supports our students."

Proceeds from TRUEMU Night go into the Student Emergency Fund, an assistance program that provides currently enrolled students with financial support for unexpected emergency expenses. This allows students to continue their education and meet their housing, medical, or additional financial needs. Learn more about how the Student Emergency Fund provides support to EMU students.

Specially priced EMU ticket packages can be purchased here.
