Important Update on 2020 12th Man Foundation Summer Meeting
May 7, 2020
One of our most anticipated events each year is the 12th Man Foundation Summer Meeting.
Since 1979 the Summer Meeting has stood out as an annual tradition to gather with fellow Aggies and celebrate our shared passion for Texas A&M Athletics.
While we remain encouraged by the progress in the fight against COVID-19 and optimistic for the return of students and events to campus this fall, the 12th Man Foundation has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Summer Meeting. Following much discussion, it has been determined that it is not in the best interest of our donors, coaches, student-athletes and staff to meet in person as planned.
Since we will be unable to convene June 25-28 at the Hyatt Regency in San Antonio, our staff will host a series of virtual events highlighting the positive impact donors are making on Texas A&M Athletics and in the lives of our amazing student-athletes. We will provide additional details in the coming weeks as we look forward to honoring your commitment to the past and future success of Texas A&M Athletics.

A Note to our Football Season Ticket Holders
April 22, 2020
The return of Aggie football to Kyle Field each fall is one of the most celebrated moments of the year. Enthusiasm and anticipation for the upcoming football season is even greater following the unprecedented events that resulted in the cancellation of collegiate sports this spring.
While the COVID-19 health crisis has presented unique challenges for both Texas A&M Athletics and the 12th Man Foundation, our organizations remain focused on the well-being of our student-athletes, staff and fans. We maintain our commitment to providing exemplary service to our season ticket buyers and donors whose loyal support allows us to compete at the highest level.
We understand there is speculation regarding football this fall. We remain encouraged with the progress in the fight against COVID-19 and are proceeding with the expectation that the season will commence as planned. Texas A&M Athletics and the 12th Man Foundation will follow the guidance of health experts, governmental leaders, university officials and the SEC, with health and safety as our highest priority.
As part of our commitment to our donors and ticket buyers, we feel it is prudent to provide information in the event the upcoming football schedule is altered or outright canceled.
In the event that the 2020 football season is canceled in its entirety, season ticket holders would be offered refund options for both the cost of their tickets and the associated seat contribution. Options would include:
- Applying the refund as a credit toward 2021 football season tickets.
- Refunding the full amount to the method of payment originally used.
- Donating all or a portion of the refund to the 12th Man Foundation in support of Texas A&M Athletics.
In the event that the 2020 season is played but materially altered, there are many scenarios that could result in season ticket holders being impacted. Regardless of the scenario, Texas A&M Athletics and the 12th Man Foundation will act in the best interest of our season ticket holders and honor their financial commitment.
Season ticket holders are the lifeblood that fuels Texas A&M Athletics to provide unmatched support for our student-athletes as they compete on the biggest stage and make gameday at Kyle Field an unrivaled experience.
We look forward to gathering in Aggieland to celebrate our shared passion for Aggie football this fall.
Thank you for your support of Texas A&M Athletics and the 12th Man Foundation.
