One week remaining to get tickets to MU event
CHARLESTON -- Thundering Herd fans have one week remaining to buy tickets and reserve tables for Marshall University's Paint the Capital City Green pep rally in Charleston on Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Embassy Suites hotel.
Special guests, including Marshall University Head Football Coach Doc Holliday and his senior players, will speak about the future of Marshall University football. A Marshall football VIP will also be seated at sponsored tables.
"There is a lot of talk about our team this year," Holliday said, in a news release. "This event is the one pre-season opportunity for fans to hear directly from me and from our student athletes and it's always a sellout. Don't miss it. It's one night in Charleston, and then it's back to practice for us."
Paint the Capital City Green is the nation's largest indoor pep rally for the Herd. Fans will enjoy a tailgate spread, entertainment by mascot Marco, the cheerleading squad, dance team and members of the Marshall University Marching Thunder. The 17th annual event, presented by Friends of Coal and sponsored in part by Huntington Bank, is hosted by the Big Green Scholarship Foundation and the Marshall University Alumni Association.
To order tickets, call 304-696-7138 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual tickets are $60 and will not be sold at the door. Ticket sales close Friday, Aug. 15. All ticket holders will be entered into a drawing to win hotel accommodations and free admission to a road game.
