RENO, Nev. – In conjunction with the annual Silver and Blue Spring Game, the University of Nevada will play host to a Football Alumni Weekend welcoming back all football letterwinners to campus for two days of activities.
The weekend begins on April 25 with a welcome reception at Bubinga inside the Eldorado Hotel Casino. On Saturday, Wolf Pack football alums will take part in a pre-game tailgate, provided by the Beefeaters, at Mackay Stadium beginning at 11 a.m. with the Silver and Blue Spring Game to follow at 2 p.m.
Football alums attending the event will be able to watch the spring game from the sidelines at Mackay. The Alumni Football Chapter of the Nevada Alumni Association will then play host to a post-game tailgate event, with remarks from head coach Brian Polian and locker room/facility tours.
“It’s important for all of our alums to know that they are still members of the Wolf Pack family,” said David Sabolcik, associate athletics director at Nevada. “Hosting an annual football alumni event around the spring game allows us to engage our alumni and provide them the opportunity to get to know our coaches, the current team and where their program is now.”
For any former Nevada football player who may be interested in attending, please call (775) 682-6901 or email WolfPack@unr.edu. An RSVP is required.
