RICHMOND, Va. – This Wednesday, Jan. 9, VCU fans will have the opportunity to take part in a historic event that will go down in VCU basketball history. In conjunction with the first-ever home Atlantic 10 Conference men’s basketball game, the VCU athletic department is hosting “Stripe the Stu 2013.”
The event was developed to celebrate VCU’s inaugural home men’s basketball game in the A-10 Conference at the Verizon Wireless Arena at the Stuart C. Siegel Center.
Every fan will receive a black or gold “Stripe the Stu” t-shirt that will be placed on his or her seat creating a “stripe” effect throughout the arena. The “VCU” and “RAMS” sections will also be color-coordinated to spell them out. All t-shirts will be size extra-large to ensure everyone can wear a t-shirt to support the effort. There will be a station located on the northwest concourse with a limited number of larger sized t-shirts to accommodate fans who need to exchange the t-shirts.
All fans with a Standing Room Only ticket may pick up a t-shirt by showing their game ticket at the station on the concourse.
The VCU athletic department asks all fans to fully support the efforts of this historic event by putting on their t-shirt once they arrive to their seats and wear it for the duration of the game. In order for Stripe the Stu to be a complete success, the support of all the fans in the arena is needed. There will be a professional photographer on hand to take pictures for a commemorative print that will later be for sale to all fans.
VCU Athletics would like to thank the following sponsors for their participation in this year’s event: Lumber Liquidators, VCU Executive MBA, Allianz, Pearson Honda, State Farm Insurance, and EVB. The VCU athletic department hopes to make this an annual event and would like to thank fans in advance for their support and participation in the first-ever Stripe the Stu.
Tickets are still available, so call the VCU Ticket Office (804-828-RAMS (7267)) today for your chance to be a part of this historic event.
