NIU Football Family Fun Day
Saturday, August 19, 2017
Northern Illinois University Athletics will hold its Annual Family Fun Day on Saturday, August 19 at Huskie Stadium with activities for all ages, free parking and admission and more. Fans, families, and alumni from DeKalb to Chicago, Rockford and beyond are all invited to enjoy an afternoon with the Huskies less than two weeks before the team takes on Boston College in the 2017 season opener on September 1 at Huskie Stadium.
NIU is looking to #BlackOutBC for the 2017 season opener when Boston College becomes the first Atlantic Coast Conference team to play in Huskie Stadium since 2003. Single game tickets are priced at $30 (West Side, reserved) and $20 (East Side, general admission). Discounts for groups as small as 15 people are also available.
The Family Fun Day begins at 3:30 p.m. on August 19 when fans are invited to the West Stands to watch the 2017 NIU Huskie Football team practice. After watching the Huskies, fans are invited onto the field to meet the team, get autographs and mingle with the coaches, staff, and players in the North End Zone beginning at approximately 4:45 p.m.
The NIU Bounce House and inflatable games will be set up in the End Zone for kids. Purchase concession items, pick up 2017 posters for football, volleyball, and men’s and women’s soccer to keep track of every game, and see the Jacoby Trophy, won by NIU for the first time and recognizing the top women’s athletics program in the Mid-American Conference.
