A Tradition of Alumni Pride Since 1969


Alumni Band Changes to Rehearsal/Registration Location and Other Updates

18 Oct 2022 9:24 AM | Sarah Harper (Administrator)

We have been invited by Dr. Williams and The Pride to spend Homecoming Game Day shadowing them from practice through pre-game! Please read this entire email so you do not miss several important updates concerning Homecoming Weekend 2022.

Game Day

WVU Athletics is graciously working with the Band Office and our Board of Directors to accommodate us spending the day with The Pride and all of our game day activities. Some game day highlights include:

  • Limited number of parking passes near the stadium. Carpooling will be encouraged.
  • Registration in the Indoor Practice Facility (IPF), located directly behind the stadium across from the Press Box tunnel.
  • Combined pre-game show rehearsal at Mountaineer Field.
  • Joining The Pride on Law School Hill and marching as a unit with them to the tunnels.
  • Playing in the stands! This year we will be bringing our instruments back to our seats so we can play some of our pre-game music during the game.

Only those registered to march pre-game will be allowed to enter the facility for practice. You must have your wristband and personal ticket/ticket lanyard for entry. If you have a pre-teen/teen with you as your guest, please let us know ASAP at info@wvualumniband.org.

Details are being worked out with the Band Office and a formal schedule with game day details is forthcoming. All updates for the weekend will be sent out by email and also available under the tab Homecoming 2022 at the website.

After Homecoming, WVU Athletics, the Band Office and our Board of Directors will meet to discuss how the day turns out this year to determine if this is something that can continue in the future. WVU Athletics and the Band Office have made it very clear that our alcohol policy applies to all of the facilities we enter (i.e., Mountaineer Field, IPF) for rehearsal, registration, annual meeting, and pre-game. The success of the day will determine future game day activities spent with The Pride.

Additional Guest Ticket

If you would like to purchase an additional guest ticket for the game, you may do so by emailing Sarah at Webmaster@wvualumniband.org. Guest tickets are $70.

Parade Time Change

Parade time step-off is 6:00pm. This time change is due to the high school MoHawk Bowl held Friday evening.
