The University of Nevada athletics department will host a pair of fan-friendly events involving the football, volleyball and women’s soccer teams this week.
First up is the football program’s “Practice With the Pack” event, scheduled for Friday evening at Wolf Pack Park. The event is open to any youth football player, eighth grade or younger, involved in Pop Warner or Sierra Youth Football. The youth players are asked to wear their jersey and tennis shoes and they can practice with the team from 7 to 8:15 p.m. on Friday. For more information on the event, call the Nevada football office at (775) 784-6891.
On Saturday, fans will have a chance to meet the Wolf Pack football, women’s soccer and volleyball teams and pick up their tickets for the 2007 football season at the annual “Meet and Greet” event on Saturday, Aug. 18 from 12-2 p.m. outside Mackay Stadium. The event is immediately following the following football team’s scrimmage at Mackay Stadium, which will begin at 10:15 a.m.
In addition to opportunities for autographs and photos with Nevada student-athletes, the event will include a barbecue lunch, courtesy of Bully’s Sports Bar and Grill. There will also be plenty of activities and games, including bounce houses, face-painting, giveaways and raffle prizes. Prizes include sideline passes, Pup Club memberships, VIP events with the coaches, game tickets and an all-inclusive trip to the Nevada vs. Nebraska game in Lincoln on Sept. 1.
The event is free to the public and will be held on the Computing Center lawn outside the northwest gates to Mackay Stadium. Free parking is available in the West Stadium Parking Complex.
Fans who have already purchased season tickets for the 2007 football season can pick them up at the event, while season and single-game tickets will also be available for sale at the event.
