CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics has another full day of fun scheduled for the Chanticleers' home football game versus Delaware State this Saturday at 6 pm, as part of Family Weekend on campus.
While fans are encouraged to arrive early and stay late, there will be one change implemented this weekend. Access to the field postgame will be restricted to only those with proper credentials for the safety of the fans, student-athletes and game management personnel. Fans and parents wishing to meet Coastal Carolina student-athletes postgame may do so by waiting on the pavement behind the fence adjacent to the north endzone seating section.
As for the arriving early, once again, starting at 2 pm, Coastal Carolina Fan Fest will be open to the public on the Adkins Field House lawn. Fan Fest features inflatables, games, music, Coastal Carolina cheerleaders and an appearance by Chauncey.
D.R. Horton will also once again set up its mobile command center, allowing fans to follow other college football games across the country on television.
At 3 pm, the D.R. Horton and 93.9 ESPN Radio "The Team" tailgate show begins broadcasting near Gate 2 of Brooks Stadium. The show will lead to the Chanticleer Sports Network pre-game show, which begins at 5 pm.
At 3:30 pm complimentary golf carts rides, operated by Coastal Carolina student-athletes, will be circulating campus offering free transport to those needing assistance to Brooks Stadium. Larger campus shuttles will begin operating at 4 pm to assist all fans parking on the extremities of campus, namely the parking lots at Horry Georgetown Technical College.
The first 3,000 fans will receive Pom Poms. Also, game programs will be given out for free while supplies last.
For the parents and students, Coastal Carolina athletics will have a photographer stationed at Blanton Circle near the Parent's tent from 4-5 pm to take a Family Photo with Chauncey. While there, you can leave your information and learn how to receive the photo.
As a reminder to Coastal Carolina student, you must be wearing your game wristband AND hand your student I.D. to enter the stadium. Your gate to enter is Gate 6, closest to University Boulevard and Highway 544. Thank you to all the students last week who contributed a tremendous positive impact to the game-day atmosphere at Brooks Stadium.
