The 2023 football season kicks off today when Lindenwood University welcomes the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point to Hunter Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m., and a short fireworks display will follow the game.
Hunter Stadium seats up to 6,000 fans, and the University needs your support once again this season.
In 2022, the Lions finished 7-3 overall, including a 4-1 record at Hunter Stadium. This season features five home games, including two sets of back-to-back home contests.
The first Lion Pride Tailgate kicks off at 4 p.m. today and includes over 30 local vendors, serving food, beverages, products, or promoting their business or organization. Vendors may have items for purchase, business information, and free giveaways.
“We are excited to promote the 2023 football tailgating season and Lion Pride Tailgates,” Special Events Coordinator Sarah Kozy said. “Our tailgate event promises an unforgettable experience that brings together the spirit of the LU community.
Tailgating is free and vehicles will be loaded in on a first come, first served bases. Tailgaters are permitted to set up tents in the designated areas. Lots will open at the designated start time. Tailgates can begin no earlier than three hours prior to the scheduled kickoff.
About two hours before kickoff, the Lindenwood football team, cheer, and marching band will make their way down Find Your Roar Drive for their pre-game walk, allowing fans to get a first-hand glimpse of everyone before entering Hunter Stadium.
Come on out and show your Lion pride during each of LU’s five home games this season. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Lindenwood Box Office.
