Gold-Blue Game set for April 30

MORGANTOWN — West Virginia University will hold the annual Gold-Blue spring football scrimmage on Friday, April 30, at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium.

 Festivities are set to begin at 7 p.m., with an old timers game featuring former Mountaineer players. The intrasquad scrimmage under the lights will conclude WVU’s spring football drills. The offense will be wearing gold uniforms, and the defense will don the blue uniforms.

 Fans are encouraged to attend the Mountaineer Fan Festival in the stadium lot adjacent to the Ronald McDonald House from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., featuring inflatable games for kids and an autograph session with select former Mountaineer football players.

 Tickets are available for $5 each. They can be purchased at the Milan Puskar Stadium gate on game day or in advance the week of the game at the Mountaineer Ticket Office located in the WVU Coliseum. WVU students will be admitted free with a valid ID. Stadium parking information will be released at a later date.

 Once again this year, there will not be an autograph session following the game, and fans will not be permitted on the field. Mountaineer Football will conduct its annual Fan Day in August with details being released later this summer.

 Proceeds from the Gold-Blue Game again will benefit WVU Children’s Hospital. The Mountaineers have donated $597,032 to Children’s Hospital during the past 25 years.
