Free Admission Offered for Saturday Games

 Free Admission Offered for Saturday Games

10/03/2013 

The SUNY Cortland Athletics Department is saying thanks to local fans this weekend by offering free admission to a pair of Saturday home games and celebrating community youth teams.

All fans will get in to the College’s football and women’s soccer games for free. Cortland hosts Plattsburgh in soccer on the Jets Field at 11:30 a.m. and Kean University on the gridiron at 1 p.m.

“This is a way for us to recognize fans in the community — the loyal ones who have been coming to games for years and also those who might never have experienced a home game,” said Ashley Whiting, the College’s assistant athletic director for marketing, promotions and event management.

Along with the free admission offer, the College plans to welcome local football and cheerleading teams from the Cortland Youth Bureau and Groton Youth Football. It all ties in with the Athletics Department’s “communiversity” theme for the day.

“We try to make our games fun for kids and affordable for families,” Whiting said. “That stays true all year long.”

With a 2-3-4 record, Cortland’s women’s soccer team is battle tested so far this season. Six of its nine games have gone into overtime, including a draw with then-No. 2 nationally ranked Emory. The Red Dragons played to 0-0 ties in their first two State University of New York Athletic Conference games and host Potsdam on Friday before their Saturday game against Plattsburgh.

The football team enters its New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) match-up against Kean at 1-2, coming off a 33-25 loss at No. 19 St. John Fisher. The Red Dragons will look to keep their perfect NJAC mark intact after knocking off William Paterson, 26-15, at home Sept. 21.
