Wildcat Football Announces Promotional Schedule

by | Aug 20, 2019 | Sports

The 2019 Wildcat football team listens to Head Coach Scott Abell after their first practice.


DAVIDSON, N.C. –Davidson football is slated to host seven games at Richardson Stadium this season and on top of the exciting NCAA FCS action there will be a full slate of promotional opportunities for all.

The home opener on Aug. 31 against Georgetown will once again serve as the annual Military and First Responder Appreciation Day. Be sure to stop by and check out emergency vehicles from the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office and Davidson Police Department. 

On top of that, thanks to a generous gift from Steve Smith ’66, Wildcat fans can claim up to six tickets as part of the “Pack Richardson” campaign. Don’t miss out, use the promo code PACKRICHARDSON to claim your complimentary tickets now!

The following weekend, Saturday, Sep. 7, it’s not the “Red Wedding,” but come decked out in red for “Red Out Richardson” and enjoy Game of Thrones night. The first 500 games will receive a Davidson/Westeros themed t-shirt.

The final game of the month, Sept. 14, will serve as the Educator Appreciation Day. Half-price tickets available to school staff with valid ID. 

When the ‘Cats return on October 12, we ask that as many former Wildcats come back to see Davidson on the gridiron. During the game against defending Pioneer Football League Champion, San Diego, Davidson will honor the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Tangerine Bowl Team. The first 500 fans will receive a replica Tangerine Bowl/Southern Conference Champions banner. It will also serve as the Breast Cancer Awareness Game.

The clash with Marist on Oct. 26 falls on Homecoming and Family Weekend. All Davidson College parents will receive half-priced tickets to see the ‘Cats take on the Red Foxes.

Be sure to bring the young ‘Cat fans out on Nov. 2 for the annual “Take a Kid to the Game” day. Children under 12 get into the game free with the purchase of an adult ticket.

The 2019 season finale on Nov. 23 will honor the seniors with a Senior Day ceremony prior to kick-off against Drake. The season finale will also serve as “Youth Sports Day.” Kids wearing their youth team jersey of any kind get free entry into Richardson Stadium!

Single-game tickets are now available here.
