Furman FanFest presented by Mast General Store and Ingles has been set for Saturday, Aug. 19 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Fluor Field in downtown Greenville.
The event follows Furman’s open football practice at Sirrine Stadium from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sirrine Stadium served as Furman’s football home from 1936 through 1980 and saw the Paladins’ exit the facility in grand style with a 28-15 victory over arch-rival The Citadel for the program’s first outright Southern Conference football championship.
FanFest offers fans the opportunity to secure the official 2017 Furman poster and autographs and take pictures with their favorite Paladin players, as well as new head coach Clay Hendrix. Other Furman athletic teams, including women’s soccer, volleyball, and men’s and women’s cross country, will also be on hand along with the Paladin cheerleaders and Dan Scott, the “Voice of the Paladins.”
Fans in attendance will have the opportunity to purchase the 2017 official FanFest t-shirt and enter to win exclusive prizes, including lunch with Furman athletics director Mike Buddie, as well as sideline passes to a 2017 Furman football game.
Discounted $8 tickets can be purchased online for the Furman FanFest event, which includes admission to the Greenville Drive-West Virginia Power baseball game beginning at 7:05 p.m. and features the first pitch by Clay Hendrix. Furman students can purchase tickets for $5.
Tickets can also be purchased on Aug. 19 at the Drive Ticket Office, located on the corner of Markley and Main Streets.
