Fans will enter through the Next Level Lobby in the Bill Brown Alumni Football Center and will receive guided tours through the entire Bronco football experience from scouting the opponent’s film, to going to the team room to break down practice footage, to taking the field through the team tunnel after receiving a pre-game pep talk from head coach Bill Cubit.
Fans will experience the pre-game adrenaline rush with sounds of the crowd, WMU Football’s entrance song and the sound of, “Hear Come Your Broncos” over the stadium sound system. Once on the field, fans will have the opportunity to meet the Bronco NFL stars. WMU will provide a commemorative poster and markers for autographs.
Food and beverages will be available on the field to all attendees and a photo station will be set up for Bronco fans of all ages to have their picture taken in authentic WMU football game gear.
Each tour group will be guided by two current WMU football student-athletes and many of the stops along the tour will be led by current members of the Bronco coaching staff. Tours in groups of 20 to 30 fans will begin at 6:30 p.m. Coach Cubit and other current and former Broncos will address the crowd on the field at 8 p.m.
