UTEP Officials are inviting the orange and blue faithful to attend Miner football practice, then interact with players and coaches as part of the team’s annual “Fan Day” festivities on Saturday, August 24.
“We are looking forward to having the fans come out to watch us practice on Fan Day so they can get a good feel for what they are going to see from us this year,” UTEP coach Dana Dimel said. “It will also be nice to have fans meet the team afterward and learn about the guys they are going to see on the field this fall.”
The Miners will conduct an open practice on Glory Field from 9:20-11:20 a.m. Immediately following practice, UTEP players and coaches will sign complimentary UTEP football schedule posters in the Sun Bowl stadium concourse.
The UTEP cross country, rifle and soccer teams will also participate in the autograph session.
Fan Day promises to bring fun for the entire family with games and a DJ. The UTEP band and cheerleaders will also take part in the day’s events.
“This is a great opportunity for fans to get up close and personal with our student-athletes before the season starts!” UTEP Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing Daniel Veale said. “Giving them the chance to connect and interact with the community is the best way to kick off a new year!”
