Fan Bus Packages Available for Hornets Season Opener

Release Date: Jul 13, 2012

Bus packages now are available for Montgomery and Atlanta-area Hornets fans who want to cheer on their team at the MEAC/SWAC Challenge Presented by Disney on Sept. 2.

College football season is just around the corner, and ASU football fans aren’t wasting any time gearing up for the Hornets’ first game.

Several major support groups of  ASU athletics are sponsoring spectator / fan buses to Orlando, Fla., to see the Hornets football team play the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats in the MEAC / SWAC Challenge presented by Disney on Sunday, Sept.  2. Kick off for the game is at noon EST at the Florida Citrus Bowl. 

“We're so excited, and we want everyone to be just as excited so we can fill up the Citrus Bowl,” said Millie Johnson, ASU alumna and member of the Atlanta Metro chapter. “Since Disney is the sponsor, this is a huge deal for us and we need to get everyone involved.  Most importantly, we love and support ASU to the fullest, so we definitely want to come out in big numbers.”
