Fireworks, shot for tuition, introduction of teams to highlight event being held on new Brooks Gym quad

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 18, 2013) – The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will officially welcome the 2013-14 basketball season with a newly revamped and reenergized Bluenanza event on Oct. 28 beginning at 7 p.m. on the new quad area located in front of Brooks Gym.

Now called Bluenanza 2.0, the event is presented by Johnson City Honda and will mark the sixth straight year that Buccaneer fans have come together to start the new season with a bang. But this year, there will be actual fireworks!

The First Bank and Trust Company Firework Celebration will cap off an evening that will include free food for ETSU students, introductions of both the men’s and women’s teams, and a special fan contest where three lucky students will have the opportunity to win free in-state tuition for a semester by making a shot from the top of Brooks Gym into a goal located inside the quad.

ETSU students are highly encouraged to attend, but admission is also free to the general public.

To purchase season tickets for the upcoming men’s and women’s basketball season, contact the ETSU ticket office at 423-439-ETSU (3878), or purchase them the night of Bluenanza 2.0. For more information on Buccaneer athletics, visit www.ETSUBucs.com.
