All Game-Day Roads Lead to 'Terp Town'
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - A big part of the excitement surrounding Maryland Football game days in 2011 will take place prior to each home game as fans are encouraged to enjoy "Terp Town" at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center.
The event is being presented by Capital One Bank and is being coordinated by the University of Maryland Alumni Association and Intercollegiate Athletics.
"Capital One Bank is proud to be the Official Bank of University of Maryland Athletics, and we're pleased to continue our partnership and bring this exciting new experience to Terps fans," said Michael Pugh, Market President, Capital One Bank. "As an NCAA corporate champion and a long-time sponsor of Maryland Athletics, Capital One Bank is committed to supporting all areas of college sports and contributing resources to help student-athletes reach their goals on the playing field and in the classroom.
"We look forward to another successful year on and off the playing field for University of Maryland student athletes, families and fans."
Terp Town will provide family fun for all ages, including inflatable games, face painting, autographs, a live DJ and more. The first 2,000 fans to stop by receive a free exclusive giveaway item.
"We want this to be the ultimate game-day experience," said assistant athletics director Nick Lofaro. "There's always something special about a college football game on campus and we want Terrapin fans of all ages to come together to enjoy the experience."
The Tailgate Grill located inside the center's Moxley Gardens will sell food and drinks, and fans will also be able to catch all the day's college football action on the big screen. Drink discounts will be available for all Alumni Association and Terrapin Club members with their membership card.
The action will begin three hours prior to kickoff.
