TUCSON, ARIZONA – The Tucson Sugar Skulls are offering a buy-one-get-one-free ticket special to customers who order from the team’s restaurant partners through April.

Customers with a minimum order of $20 for take-out or delivery from participating restaurant partners between now and April 30 will receive a voucher to buy up to two tickets and get two free to either of the first two home games of the 2020 season. The Sugar Skulls season currently is postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is a very difficult time for everyone in our community and for businesses who are doing their best to serve us every day through this crisis,” said Sugar Skulls Owner Cathy Guy. “This is our way of encouraging our fans and the public as a whole to support the business community as we deal with the effects of COVID-19.”

Fans will be able to redeem the vouchers through the team’s online ticket seller, Ticketmaster, or take the voucher to the Sugar Skulls office at Kino Veteran’s Memorial Stadium, 2500 E. Ajo Way, and purchase tickets after dates for the first two home games are announced.

In statements by the league last weekend and by the Sugar Skulls on Monday, fans were informed the league expects to continue play in the 2020 season which began the weekend of March 7. The Sugar Skulls scheduled season opener on March 19 was postponed, and the home games of March 29 and April 11 were officially postponed on Monday.

To Our Season Ticket Members, Partners and Fans,

On March 12, the Indoor Football League postponed the start of our 2020 season. While we have a strong desire to be as transparent as possible about our situation, we have previously delayed making any further statements in order to be accurate with the most up-to-date information. This is an unprecedented time and information is evolving daily.

We want our fans, partners and season ticket members to know the IFL and the Sugar Skulls absolutely have a plan to continue play in 2020. The postponement was a direct result of venue closures and for the protection of the public. Our foremost concern is the health and safety of our players, coaches, staff and fans.

Our first two home games scheduled for this Sunday, March 29, and April 11 are currently postponed. All tickets purchased for those two games will be honored once we have a schedule for postponed games.

There are many businesses that have been severely impacted by all the closures. Most of our coaches and players have chosen to remain in Tucson to work and serve in the community. We encourage everyone to do their part to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to support our local businesses as much as possible. We will update you as we have more information available. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you at The Boneyard in 2020.

Be safe,

Cathy Guy

As we head into the weekend and continue to practice responsible behavior in this difficult time, we ask you to support the businesses in Tucson who support the Sugar Skulls. They give to the community every day and it's our turn to give back. Thank you for your support.

TUCSON, ARIZONA – The Tucson Sugar Skulls have added a local player to the 2020 roster signing Edgar Poe, a football and track star from Cienega High School in Vail.
