Catawba Hopes to Fill Stadium at Home Football Games through Themed Games

themes

The Catawba College Chiefs Club hopes to fill Shuford Stadium during home football games this fall by promoting themed game days. On different Saturdays, a different organization or segment of the local population will be targeted and offered free admission to the games. According to Gordon Kirkland, Catawba's director of athletic development, this Chiefs Club initiative "is an effort to promote what we've got here and to expose more people to it. Folks don't know how much fun they can have on a Saturday at a Catawba football game."

On September 4, Police Officers, Firefighters and Emergency Responders will be admitted free along with three of their guests to the 7 p.m. game against St. Augustine.

In the 7 p.m. game on September 18 when Catawba takes on Shaw University, Youth Sports is the theme and any youth, age 14 or younger, who wears their team shirt will be admitted free to the game, along with free admittance for that youth's three guests.

On October 16, employees at two local hospitals, Rowan Regional and Veterans Administration, will receive free admittance for themselves and three guests to the 1:30 p.m. Catawba game against Carson-Newman.  Hospital employees from either facility must show their employee ID badge at the gate.

During the last home game of the season at 1:30 p.m. on November 6, Catawba takes on Tusculum and Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts will be admitted free to the game with three guests by wearing their uniforms.

For more details on the themed game days, contact Gordon Kirkland at (704) 637-4394.

Catawba College's Chiefs Club is the athletic booster club for Catawba's athletic teams. Memberships in the Chiefs Club supports 83 full athletic scholarships that the college sponsors for approximately 450 student athletes playing one of Catawba's 18 NCAA Division II sports.
