Florida A&M University Announces Enhanced Fall Football Experience

TALLAHASSEE, FL, August 14, 2012 – With the fall football season quickly approaching, Florida A&M University (FAMU) announces an enhanced football experience and halftime entertainment for fans of FAMU football. This 2012 football season takes on a special meaning as the university celebrates 125 years of excellence. The season, which kicks off September 1 in Nashville against Tennessee State, includes four home games each with a different game experience that fans will appreciate and get excited about.

“We have a promising team this football season ready and excited to showcase their talent on the gridiron,” shares Derek Horne, FAMU Athletics Director. “Our guys have been putting in extra time with drills over the summer, and adding the excitement of the enhanced halftime experience is sure to make this a very exciting football season as FAMU celebrates 125 years.”

The FAMU Athletics program takes on a brand new energy this season unveiling a new theme – “Our Team, Our Time. Respect the Game.” In addition to the new theme, each game this season includes a halftime entertainment production that includes the voice of FAMU football, Joe Bullard, serving as game MC and an Old School vs New School DJ set to keep fans excited and energized throughout the entire game. The halftime segment for each game is tight lipped for now but fans can expect special performances from major recording artists and a contest to win a meet and greet with the artists.

In addition to the game experience, FAMU Athletics is partnering with Visit Tallahassee to create sports travel packages that include hotel stay and a game ticket. The entire marketing program will be focused on driving game attendance and overnight stay during home games while creating value and an enhanced game experience for fans.

Opponents for this year’s home games include Hampton University as the opening game on September 15th, Savannah State on October 13th, South Carolina State University on October 20th, and the homecoming game celebrating FAMU’s 125th anniversary on November 10th against North Carolina Central.
