Today the Sports Promotions office at the University of Virginia announced plans to host a full day of activities April 2, 2005 on Grounds, as six Cavalier programs will be in action, five against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.

The “Spring Sports Festival” is designed to attract sports fans of all ages to experience a wide variety of high level ACC competition. In addition to the play on the field or on the court, the Sports Promotions office has created some enticing “add-ons” to bring people on to Grounds.
“With the `VIP Credential’ that we have developed, not only will you be able to experience the games up close and personal, you will be able to do so with relative ease and convenience,” stated Trip Durham, Director of Marketing. “Once you arrive on grounds, you can park your vehicle and ride a courtesy shuttle around the loop of Klöckner Stadium (lacrosse), The Park (softball) and the Snyder Tennis Center.” A lunch buffet full of traditional ballpark fare will also be provided for those who have purchased a “VIP Credential”.
“The credential is a great way for fans to be treated like someone special,” Durham added. “It will allow the fans to come and go from venue to venue as they please, with comfort and style and it will allow them to enjoy a great lunch outdoors in April.”
“VIP Credentials” are $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for youth, seventeen years of age and under. For more information about the inaugural “Spring Sports Festival” and to purchase your “VIP Credential”, call the Cavalier ticket office at 1-800-542-UVA1.
