KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee athletics will host a Big Orange Watch Party for this weekend’s NCAA Knoxville Super Regional games against Notre Dame.
The watch party will be located in the green space just beyond the outfield wall down the right-field line of Lindsey Nelson Stadium between the GF1 and GF2 parking lots. CLICK HERE (PDF) for a map showing the location.
The new location for this year’s watch party is due to the current construction of Haslam Field as well as the street closure of Pat Head Summitt Street to create the extended concourse for ticketed fans.
This weekend’s watch party will feature a live big-screen game broadcast, tailgate games, a pep rally with the Tennessee Spirit Squads, DJ Sterl the Pearl, food trucks, face painting, a VolShop merchandise stand and more.
More details for the watch party are listed below:
- Begins 90 minutes prior to first pitch each day
- Friday at 4:30 p.m.
- Saturday at 12:30 p.m.
- Sunday TBD (If necessary)
