Cavalier Football's Meet the Team Event Set for Aug. 15
Charlottesville, VA – The Virginia football team will hold its popular “Meet the Team Day” this year on Sunday, Aug. 15. Cavalier fans will have the chance to interact with the players on Virginia’s 2010 squad, head coach Mike London and the other members of the UVa coaching staff.
Meet the Team Day takes place at the Carl Smith Center, home of David A. Harrison III Field at Scott Stadium. Players will be available for photos and autographs from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Gates to the stadium open at 1:30 p.m.
“I’m excited for our players to interact with our fans on August 15,” London said. “This is a fun day for our players and it comes in the middle of our pre-season camp, so it is a break the players look forward to in their schedule. Our fans have shown our team and staff great support and we look forward to being in Scott Stadium with everyone before the season begins.”
Fans will be able to pick up copies of the 2010 Cavalier Football schedule poster, schedule magnet and schedule cards. Tours of the locker room will take place and fans will have the opportunity to purchase the latest 2010 officially licensed sideline apparel from Nike as well as the 2010 football fan t-shirt. Concession stands will be in operation and the first 500 youth in attendance will receive a free UVa-Nike mini football. All fans in attendance also have the opportunity to win door prizes.
There will be plenty of activities for young Cavalier fans. A kid’s zone will feature inflatable games and other activities. The Cavalier and his horse, Sabre, will be in attendance along with members of the Virginia spirit team.
Parking is free for the event in both the East and West lots adjacent to Scott Stadium. Fans planning to attend the event should be aware that Alderman Road will be closed between Whitehead Road and Scott Stadium’s West parking lot due to a University utility project. The most direct route to access the stadium’s parking lots will be from Emmet Street / Stadium Road.
