Are You Ready For Some Football?!?

As the month of July is wrapping up, it is time to seriously start thinking about Wolfpack football.  After all, September 4th is only 39 days away!  With all of the excitement already surrounding the upcoming basketball season, what better way to get ready than kicking-off Wolfpack Football?  We have a pretty difficult schedule for the upcoming year, but as always, we Wolfpack faithful can expect an exciting product on the field, and a fun time in the stands.

This blog post will provide you with all the info you’ll need to get ready for the season.  I’m sorry that there are quite a few tables and pictures, but all provide important and necessary information.  Read to the end to see a cool update on Carter-Finley Stadium.

First, take a look at our upcoming schedule, courtesy of GoPack:

As a reminder, this year we will be beginning the first year of having all students in the lower bowl.  Here is the new seating chart highlighting student sections in yellow.

Having all students sit in the lower bowl, while moving the main away section to the upper deck will allow more sound to be closer to the field, enhancing our home-field advantage!  Students get closer to the action and our increased loudness and rowdiness will definitely pump up the football team.  This move will only help our status as one of ESPNs top 5 most spirited student sections (scroll down to see us) in the US.

Lastly, its exciting to say that the sound system in Carter-Finley is getting a nice (and long overdue) upgrade.  Fans can expect better quality sound and less annoying feedback noise.  Crews have been out working the past couple weeks on the jumbo-tron as well as other speakers around the stadium.  These upgrades should allow Carter-Finley to remain the best venue in NC, and one of the best in the ACC, to watch football.

I’m definitely ready for some football!  Go Pack!
