A Message To The Pirate Nation
Sept. 1, 2009
Pirate Football 2009
The ECU student body and members of the Pirate Nation have established a game atmosphere in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium that is the envy of all visiting fans and teams who play here.
Each game is an opportunity to show the state, and often the nation, what makes a Pirate Football game day so special, both on and off the field.
It is imperative for every Pirate to be a good host to all who visit while establishing a national standard for the display of good sportsmanship
As you prepare to attend each home game we encourage all fans to remember:
1) Scanners will be used at all gates. Please have your tickets ready to be scanned.
2) Stadium gates open two (2) hours before kick-off.
3) Enter the stadium gates early. There are simply not enough gates at the stadium to admit 43,000 people quickly and the team needs you in your seats at least 30 minutes before kick-off.
4) As a reminder, fans are not permitted on to the field after the game. Stay in the stands and join the team in singing the ECU fight song and alma mater after every Pirate Victory. This gives all East Carolina fans an opportunity to celebrate together.
Let's coin a new phrase - S(UP)PORTSMANSHIP
Wear your Purple and Gold and cheer for our Pirates!
Be loud and Be Proud!
Pirates of the East...Where Purple Reigns!
Treat everyone with respect while showing your Pirate Pride.
