Charleston Southern Director of Athletics Jeff Barber announced a series of Appreciation Days for the 2019 CSU Football schedule centered around the Lowcountry community.
The Bucs will be hosting a series of “Lowcountry Appreciation” games to recognize the communities located around Charleston Southern. Hanahan, Moncks Corner, Goose Creek, North Charleston, and Summerville will all be recognized on specific game dates throughout the football season at Buccaneer Field.
“One of the most important goals we have as an athletic department is building a positive relationship with the people that live near and around the CSU campus,” Barber said. “The Lowcountry Appreciation games are a means for us to say thank you to each of these five communities. We are working hard to build a high-quality football game experience in a fun and exciting environment at a very affordable price. I have no doubt that everyone who attends will see great college football under new leadership with Coach Autry Denson.”
Fans from within these cities will be able to purchase a $5 general admission ticket to their recognized game at the gates following proof of residency. Kids wearing their recreation uniforms will be admitted free of charge.
The mayor of each city will be recognized and participate in pregame festivities, including the coin toss, while members of youth leagues, first responders and others will also be recognized throughout the game.
Each game will also be sponsored by a local business from within their respective communities.
