Butler Sets Alumni Game For Homecoming Weekend

Former Butler men's soccer players are invited back to campus to enjoy a weekend of Homecoming activities, including an Alumni Game on Saturday, Oct. 25. The match between two teams of Butler alums will be held at Varsity Field, beginning at 10 a.m.

The weekend of activities will begin on Friday, Oct. 24, with Butler hosting Loyola in a key Horizon League match at the Butler Bowl. The contest is slated for 1:30 p.m. Later that evening Butler's alums are invited to Moe and Johnny's, 5380 N. College Ave., for a social gathering.

On Saturday, the Alumni Game will highlight a day of events. Teams will be divided by graduation years with even-year graduates taking on odd-year graduates. Following the Alumni Game, participants are invited to Hinkle Fieldhouse for a tailgate (food an beverage provided) prior to the Butler-Morehead State Homecoming football game. There is a fee to cover the food costs and tickets to the football game.

Former players interested in the Alumni Weekend activities should contact Butler alum Jeff Kurtz (indykurtz@verizon.net) or Butler head coach Kelly Findley (kfindley@butler.edu). The Butler men's soccer office is seeking updated contact information/e-mail addresses for all former players.
