Game versus Appalachian State will be a memorable night for all

     

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Aug. 26, 2008) - The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has planned a memorable night of activities and special events to highlight the Buccaneers' men's soccer team's inaugural season opener this Friday at 5 p.m. against Appalachian State. The evening will also mark the first regular season game inside the newly completed Summers-Taylor Stadium.

 

Fans who have purchased season or individual game tickets will receive a commemorative ticket along with a ticket holder provided by Citizen's Bank and Wyndham Vacation Resorts. Aramark will also be giving out soccer stress balls throughout the game. Students who are members of Buc Wild will be able to enjoy free food at the Buc Wild tent during the game. For questions about joining Buc Wild call 439-5286.

 

It will also be "Club Night", as admission is free for all club soccer teams throughout the region. Teams with players in the 9th grade and up will need to fax a team roster to Sara Hacker of the marketing and promotions department. Questions can be answered by the marketing and promotions department at 439-5283.

 

Some of the special events include a "special delivery" of the game ball by the ETSU Army ROTC, while the ROTC will also have a vehicle display for fans to enjoy. In addition, ETSU President Dr. Paul E. Stanton Jr., ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dave Mullins and men's soccer head coach Scott Calabrese will make a special pregame presentation as the official game ball will be presented to Mullins, and a special autographed game jersey will be presented to Dr. Stanton.

 

As always the men's soccer team will be available for autographs following the game on the south end of the stadium.
