Football Fan Experience Night Set For Aug. 17Posted Aug. 8, 2011
Kent State fans will have their first opportunity to see the 2011 Golden Flashes football team – and check out the pregame tailgate in the Field House – when the Department of Athletics hosts Fan Experience Night on Wednesday, Aug. 17. The event is free and open to the public. During the entire event, Kent State Athletics will be collecting donations to benefit the Alabama Tornado Relief Fund.
Beginning at 5 p.m., the Fan Experience will run for an hour in Kent State Field House. The activities will include inflatables, food vendors and music as well as an opportunity to take pictures with Flash and the Kent State cheerleaders. Also during that time, fans will be able to sign up to win the chance to call the offensive and defensive plays from the sideline near the end of the scrimmage.
The festivities will then move to Dix Stadium for an open practice and scrimmage, which is slated to begin at 6 p.m. Fans who wish to purchase season tickets will have the opportunity during the game to select their seats. At the conclusion of the scrimmage, there will be an autograph session with the Golden Flashes players and coaches on the field.
The Flashes kick off the 2011 season on Sept. 3 at Alabama before returning home to host Louisiana at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Dix Stadium.
