Kansas Wesleyan University is hoping to pack Salina Stadium Saturday evening. The school is inviting all of Salina out for “Community Day”.
According to the school, Kansas Wesleyan opens the home portion of its football schedule on Saturday when the Coyotes host No. 22 ranked Evangel (Mo.) at 6 p.m., at Salina Stadium. It’s Community Day 2013, and the Coyotes would love to pack the stands with purple.
Community Day is a celebration of the Salina community and Kansas Wesleyan.
KWU and Salina have relied on each other since KWU’s founding in 1886. Salina provides a great hometown for Kansas Wesleyan and its students, faculty and staff. From internships to fan support, the Salina community is a strong asset for the Coyote program.
At the same time, Kansas Wesleyan believes its many athletics programs, including football, provide a quality of life benefit to Salina and provide a rallying point for the community, alumni, faculty, staff and students. Saturday is the first opportunity of the season for the two communities to cheer for the hometown college football team.
To kick off the celebration, Kansas Wesleyan is hosting a pre-game tailgate at Salina Stadium starting at 4:30 p.m. Admission to the tailgate is $5. Enjoy food and drinks, get your game face on, participate in some giveaways and get in the Coyote spirit before the action starts on the field!
Kickoff for the game is at 6 p.m., and fans who bring the Community Day ad appearing in the Salina Journal can receive a discount on adult tickets. Youth tickets are just $2, and children under 12 are free. Kansas Wesleyan Alumni Association members receive a free admission when presenting an alumni association membership card.
