The Florida A&M University’s sold-out homecoming game will be shown on large screens at several locations outside Bragg Memorial Stadium Saturday.
The Athletic Department in collaboration with the Division of University Advancement and the FAMU Student Government Association will show the sold-out homecoming game versus the University of Arkansas, Pine Bluff at the Knight Plaza, 1675 S. Martin Luther King, Jr., and at Robert “Pete” Griffin Track.
“We value our students and the support they provide our Athletics Department,” said Interim Athletic Director Michael Smith. “It’s our way of thanking them for their continued support and allowing students to a part of ‘The Experience’ inside of Bragg Stadium on Saturday.”
At least four screens will broadcast game at the Will Packer Amphitheater and the John and James S. Knight Foundation Plaza. The set up is being done to accommodate students who were unable to obtain any of the 4,000 student tickets from the allotted seats in Bragg Stadium.
“We wanted to make sure that students who couldn’t get tickets would have some way to see and enjoy the Homecoming game,” said SGA President Zachary C. Bell.
Community members, 21-years and older, who want a game-like atmosphere outside the stadium can watch the game on a big screen at the Griffin Track, 1835 Wahnish Way, where the Day Party team will air the game. People can bring their lawn chairs to tailgate and have a great time.
The Rattlers second to last home game of the season against the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff kicks off at 4 p.m.
