As Princeton Football kicks off it’s celebratory 150th season, Princeton University and the Department of Athletics is offering up to 2,500 free tickets (while supplies last) for the football home opener vs. Butler on Saturday, September 21st at 5:00 pm in appreciation of its Community and Staff partnerships.
The Princeton Varsity Club will be partnering with the Office of Community & Regional Affairs to host a free Youth Sports Clinic for children ages 5 to 12. The clinic will be hosted by current Princeton Student-Athletes on Weaver Track (located at the south end of Princeton Stadium) from 3:30-4:30pm in advance of the football game at 5:00pm.
Additional Community & Staff Day Activities for the family include:
- Community Service Station – those attending the Sports Clinic can stop by the Mercer Street Friends tent (set-up in Weaver Track) to pack a meal for the “Send Hunger Packing” program
- Family Fun-Fest – activities from local non-profits and University Departments, games and more. Hosted in the Princeton Stadium Concourse from 3:30pm through halftime
- Kids Club – If you have kids 12 and under stop by the Kids Club tents (located in the Stadium Concourse as well as at the Youth Sports Clinic)
This game will mark the start of the 150th season of Princeton Football (and the 150th year of College Football, as we played Rutgers in the first ever college football game on November 6, 1869). To commemorate this historic year, defending league champion Princeton will take on Dartmouth at iconic Yankee Stadium on November 9, 2019.
