ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Saturday's Firebirds game falls on Monroe High School Alumni weekend.

With the expectation of the Tornadoes alumni packing the city, they're having a special ticket sale.

Here are the prices:

Level 1: $25, 2 for $40, 4 for $60

Level 2: $12, 2 for $20, 4 for $40

Level 3: $8, 4 for $20

The Firebirds will be hosting the Corpus Christi Rage from Texas.

Not only are they lowering the prices for Alumni weekend, they're also giving first responders free entry.

"We want them to come in the game for free," said National Arena League director of football operations Chris Siegfried. "And we want to discount it for everybody else to make it affordable because we know everybody is going through a tough time right now and the Georgia Firebirds are here to thank them."

"These guys were called out of the bed 12:00, 1:00 in the morning," said Firebirds director of game day operations Brandon Bracy. "And of course, I think I can speak for them all, they don't get paid enough. So we want to show our appreciations and we thank them."

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday in the Albany Civic Center.
