UTEP Athletics and the Miner Athletic Club will be hosting the 2016 Luncheon Series to help kick off this year’s football and basketball seasons. The events will be held at the El Paso Convention Center, located in downtown El Paso, from noon – 1 p.m.
The last two years each event has reached near capacity, so fans are encouraged to reserve their seats today.

The Hoops Tip-off Luncheon is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 25 featuring men’s head coach Tim Floyd and women’s head coach Keitha Adams. They will take a look back at the 2015-16 campaign, discuss their highly-regarded recruiting classes and preview the new season.

The Miner Athletic Club (MAC) serves as the fund-raising arm of the UTEP Department of Athletics. The MAC’s mission is to annually raise funds to offset the departmental cost of scholarships and sport programs supporting UTEP student-athletes. Funds are raised by the Miner Athletic Club through annual membership, major and planned gifts, the donor portions of season ticket sales and special events.
