Show your Badger pride and wear red on Friday

Friday is Red Day at Brock as faculty, staff and students rally around the Badgers men’s and women’s basketball teams by wearing red.

During the day, the hallways will be awash with Brock red. The tide of crimson school spirit will continue into the sold-out stands in the Bob Davis Gymnasium for Brock’s season opener against the Lakehead Thunderwolves. The women play at 6 p.m. and the men tip off at 8 p.m.

Red will again be the colour of the night Saturday when Brock fans take over the Meridian Centre for the first-ever games in the downtown facility. It will be the biggest-ever sporting event in Brock’s 51-year history with more than 2,000 tickets already gone. Both teams will again play the Thunderwolves.

The Brock community has a lot to be proud of with these teams and Red Day will show the athletes how much support they have.

Both Badgers teams come into the home opening weekend ranked in the Top 10 in the country and with 3-1 records in Ontario University Athletics (OUA) play.

Tickets for the Meridian Centre games are on sale through Ticketmaster for $15 for adults and $10 for youths, students and seniors. There are still a limited number of VIP seats available.

While you are downtown, stop by the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts for a look around. It will be open to the public Saturday from 4-7 p.m.
