Football Fan Day Presented by Cabell Huntington Hospital Set for Sunday





Aug. 10, 2010

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall Football Fan Day Presented by Cabell Huntington Hospital is scheduled for Sunday, August 15, from 4-6 p.m. at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

Fans will have the opportunity to get autographs and take pictures with the 2010 edition of the Thundering Herd, and to purchase season-tickets for the upcoming campaign during the event.

Marshall's football team and staff will rotate from photo stations (the team will have their preseason photos taken for television and publication needs during this time) on to the playing surface at the stadium in position groups starting at about 4 p.m. Once each position group is finished with their photo obligations, players will be available for autographs with fans. Fans are asked to bring only one item to be autographed and to remain on the west-side sideline just off of the playing surface. Marshall Players will be escorted over and meet with fans group by group until the entire team has rotated through the various stations.

Members of the media are welcome to attend and may conduct interviews with players following their autograph period on the field.

Marshall University Athletics Ticket Office personnel will be stationed at Gate A to assist fans with open seating options and in purchasing season tickets throughout the event.
