App State Athletics Kicks Off ‘Year of the Fan’

Appalachian State University athletics has officially kicked off its “Year of the Fan.”

The Year of the Fan will run through the 2015-16 academic year as a way for Appalachian State athletics to say “Thank You” to our loyal Mountaineer fans. Appalachian State will run promotions, giveaways and great offers throughout the year as we celebrate our fans for being our Reason To Rise.

Promotions that are already underway include:

Mountaineer Memories
To kick off the Year of the Fan, Appalachian State athletics invites fans to share their favorite Mountaineer Memories with us. Select Mountaineer Memories will be featured on App State’s 2015 football season tickets and in the 2015 Appalachian Gameday football programs. The selected memories and more will be recognized throughout the year at each home football game and on designated “Year of the Fan” days for other Appalachian State sports.

To submit a favorite Mountaineer Memory, email Appalachian State promotions and fan engagement at appstpromo@appstate.edu. The deadline for submissions is Friday, July 3, 2015.

Golden Moments
Since our fans are our Reason to Rise, we want to celebrate the Black and Gold faithful with Golden Moments throughout the year. To kick things off, Appalachian State athletics and Yosef have been making surprise visits to hospitals, community centers, police and fire stations and businesses throughout the 2015 Yosef Club Spring Tour.

We don’t want to ruin the surprise but fans should be on the lookout for Golden Moments throughout the Year of the Fan — we want to help you create your next Mountaineer Memories.

15 Prizes in 15 Days
As part of the Year of the Fan kickoff, Appalachian State is excited to honor some of its most loyal fans by giving away great prizes to football season-ticket holders each day from April 16-30. All season-ticket holders that have renewed in full will be entered in a daily drawing to win prizes ranging from an autographed team poster to the chance to serve as an honorary coach for one home game in 2015.

Those who have already renewed their season tickets in full for 2015 are already entered and fans that renew between now and April 30 will be entered as soon as they do.

Winners will be announced each day at appstatesports.com. Prizes are limited to one per account. For more information and a full list of prizes, visitappstatesports.com or call the Appalachian State athletics ticket office at (828) 262-2079.
