Saturday, Aug.19, at 7 p.m., UNCG is bringing its 125th anniversary celebration to First National Bank Field for UNCG Fan Appreciation Night with the Greensboro Grasshoppers. There will be giveaways every inning. The UNCG “Band of Sparta” pep band will entertain fans in the concourse. Spiro will make an appearance on the field. And the celebration will end with fireworks.

Join the fun.

Organizers have 50 tickets available for faculty, staff and their families for free. (This is for current faculty/staff. Current students will have a separate drawing.) Just fill out the form here to enter the drawing for up to 2 tickets. Winners will be selected on Wednesday, Aug. 16. If you don’t win, faculty and staff can still buy tickets for a $2.00 discount online or at the stadium with appropriate UNCG ID.

Let’s try to pack the stands with Spartans. Wear your UNCG gear and show Greensboro our blue and gold pride as we continue to bring our 125th anniversary to life across our community.
