Father-Son Time Gets Even Sweeter with a Visit from Kevin Durant

Here at TicketCity, we love to creat unforgettable experiences for our customers. We achieve this in many ways, oftentimes helping to find just the right seats to the game or show to which a fan has anxiously been counting down the days. Other times we plan VIP experiences that even the rich and famous would envy.

But sometimes, as in the case of Keith from Austin, fate steps in to help make an already amazing experience that much better.

Keith came to TicketCity for tickets to the TicketCity Legends Classic basketball game between Texas and Rhode Islande yesterday. Since the start time of the game was 3:00 p.m., Keith had decided to check his son, Ryder, out of school early to make a father-son day out of it. We never could have predicted what happened next. Below is the e-mail we received from Keith describing their experience.


“I surprised my 6 year old son by pulling him from school early and making it a father/son afternoon. Well what transpired after that was unreal. We got to the stadium a bit early, and were identified by a UT rep and asked to come down and sit in the recliners court side. My son Ryder is a huge Kevin Durant fan and was wearing his OKC jersey at the game. Lo and behold, 5 minutes later Kevin Durant came up to him and introduced himself to my son. I’ve attached a pic.   Thanks again for your generosity…we made memories yesterday that will last a life time!”


Now that is one father-son day that will be hard to beat! We are thrilled to have played a small part in making this happen. A special thanks to Keith for sharing his story and picture with us. Do you have an unforgettable experience of your own you’d like to share? We’d love to hear about it!
