With the long-anticipated 2013 Miami Hurricanes football season about 30 or so days away, you are probably chomping at the bit for some football. Well, this may hold you over for a little while. On August 17th at the Bank United Center on campus the Miami Hurricanes will host their 2013 version of “Canesfest”.
What is “Canesfest” you ask? It is an interactive meeting between the football team and the fans. Bring the kids down and get autographs of your favorite players. There will be various photo booths and the opportunity to purchase season tickets. Let’s face it, season tickets are the only way you are going to get into that game on September 7th if you do not have a ticket by now. You could also get the opportunity to meet head coach Al Golden.
Below is a listing of the scheduled events.
• Autograph session with entire football team and head coach Al Golden
• “Dress Like a Miami Hurricane” photo booth
• ACC Championship Trophies photo booth
• Men’s Basketball Select-A-Seat event
• Homestead Speedway Race Car photo opportunity
• Purchase single-game and season tickets
• UM Bookstore Merchandise on sale
There was some confusion earlier on who would be invited to Canesfest. At first it was a Hurricane Club members’ event only. Now, anybody with a passion for the Miami Hurricanes can stop by and meet the 2013 team.
Take a deep breath. Opening day kick off will be here before you know it.
