WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - In an attempt to create a visible show of support for the Purdue football team at Homecoming in Ross-Ade Stadium, Purdue officials are encouraging fans to wear either gold or black, depending on where their seats are located, for the game against Wisconsin on Oct. 13.

"The homecoming football game is one that fans and alumni everywhere look forward to every year," head football coach Danny Hope said. "The Wisconsin game is very important for our football team this year, so we are looking for all Boilermakers to show their colors and to be part of the game-day experience by wearing their designated color. This can be a lot of fun for the fans, provide tremendous support to our team and give Ross-Ade an awesome look on television."

Fans with tickets in sections 101 through 105 - the primary area for visitor seating - are asked to wear gold, while the Purdue student sections, 106 through 115, wear black. Sections 116 through 124 will don gold and sections 125 through 134 go with black.

 

 

Gold t-shirt available for Gold & Black Game.


"We know that fans across the country have had fun doing this sort of thing in the past so we've come up with a plan to put our own spin on an idea that others have found successful," said David Wilson, Purdue's Director of Trademark Licensing. "I hope the fans embrace the idea and come wearing the appropriate colors."

Specially designed t-shirts promoting the game are available in gold and black colors. They are available online, as well as at University Spirit, University Bookstore, Follett's and Purdue Pride, plus Meijer Target and Walmart throughout Central and Northwest Indiana.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the shirts go to the 12th Boiler Scholarship Fund in the John Purdue Club to help endow a Purdue football scholarship.

Tickets for the game are available starting at $25. They may be purchased online, by calling 800-49-SPORT or 765-494-3194, or in-person at the Athletic Ticket Office in Mackey Arena.
