On Sept. 10, Tennessee basketball season tickets go on sale. The Volunteers hope to extend their streak of national top-six attendance finishes to nine years. Last season, the Vols drew an average regular-season home attendance of 17,395 which ranked sixth in the country.

Leading into the 2013-14 campaign, the Vols want your help promoting ticket sales via social media.

From Sept. 1-10, the @Vol_Hoops Instagram account will conduct a fan contest, with the winner receiving two (2) men's basketball season tickets and one (1) parking pass for all 2013-14 home games at Thompson-Boling Arena.

The contest is simple. Instagram recently introduced a video feature to its already popular photo-sharing interface. We're asking fans to produce their own Instagram video commercial promoting Tennessee men's basketball season-ticket sales and share it on Instagram.

The winner, announced Sept. 11, will be selected by a panel that includes members of the Tennessee basketball team along with representatives from UT's athletic media relations, ticketing and marketing departments.

This season showcases returning All-SEC players Jeronne Maymon, Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes. That trio, along with an exciting and balanced supporting cast, place Tennessee in position to compete at a championship level. Home opponents include NC State, Virginia, Ole Miss, Florida, Missouri and others.

Rules & Instructions
• Create an Instagram video commercial promoting Vol Hoops season ticket sales
• The video, as well as your username, must be family friendly (no profanity, violence, etc.)
• Be creative, have fun, and show your Tennessee pride
• Tag @Vol_Hoops and hashtag #VolHoops in your submission (important!)
• While anyone can submit a commercial, prospective men's basketball student-athletes (students in grades 7-12) cannot win the contest, per NCAA rules.
• A panel from the athletic department will select the winning fan commercial, to be announced Sept. 10 on and Instagram.
