Student Wristband Distribution For EWU Football Season Opener To Begin Thursday, May 29
Cheney, Wash. – With less than 100 days remaining until kickoff of the 2014 Eastern Washington University football season, students tickets will be made available for the historic game on Aug. 23 starting next Thursday, May 29, at 8 a.m. in the EWU Bookstore.
Current EWU students will receive one wristband upon showing their valid EWU ID card at the university bookstore beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 29. Wristbands will continue to be available in the bookstore for students to pick up throughout the spring and summer leading up to the day of the game.
"There is no more important population to our game day environment than our student crowd," said Ken Halpin, Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs. "Since school is not in session on Aug. 23, we're doing everything we can to get our students back on campus and fill our student section. We hope that our students will wear these wristbands and join us for a historic day as we kick off the 2014 EWU football season."
The Eagles will be featured on ESPN for the first time in school history on Aug. 23 when they welcome Sam Houston State to Roos Field for their 2014 opener. Kickoff for the historic game is set for 12:30 p.m.
