U of G Celebrates Homecoming 2015

The Guelph Gryphons will face rival McMaster Marauders on Sept. 19, 1 p.m., at Alumni Stadium in the annual University of Guelph Homecoming Game.

The traditional alumni football game, the Glory Bowl, will take place at 10 a.m.

For the Gryphons’ match against McMaster, stadium gates will open at 11 a.m. The event will include a pre-game concert and a half-time show featuring Toast and Jam, a two-member acoustic band.

Guelph and McMaster have each started off the season with victories. Last year, Guelph lost a tight Yates Cup match at McMaster 20-15.

“My team, our coaches and I are always excited to be part of Homecoming,” said Guelph coach Stu Lang.

“It means a lot to the team to have former Gryphons cheering them on, and a packed house of our loud and enthusiastic fans against one of our biggest rivals. We look forward to a tough match against McMaster.”

Student tickets for the game are on sale Sept. 11 at the Fieldhouse, with limited $30 adult tickets available online. The game will be broadcast on OUA.tv.
