UWG Announces Paint it Blue 2013 and Big Blue Friday

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Rivals will hit the court at The Coliseum on the campus of the University of West Georgia this Thursday evening, Jan. 10, as UWG Athletics presents Paint it Blue 2013 with the Valdosta State Blazers in town for a doubleheader. The first game begins at 5:30 p.m.

The game is annually one of the most exciting and is routinely the game that every UWG fan marks on their calendar. With this year’s Paint it Blue, fans will have an opportunity to receive a free T-Shirt along with many other offerings at the game.

The first 1,000 fans who enter The Coliseum for Thursday night’s games will receive a free T-Shirt. In addition, fans will have the chance to win numerous prizes throughout the night, and two fans will be entered into a drawing for a 60-in HDTV, courtesy of Georgia Power.

The UWG Athletic department also recently announced the first Big Blue Friday of the 2012-13 athletic year. Fans are encouraged to keep the blue going on Friday with Big Blue Friday, followed by the UWG Basketball Explosion Weekend on Saturday at 2 p.m. against West Florida.

"Big Blue Friday is a chance for the university and the local businesses to work together to show appreciation to Wolves fans as part of an action packed weekend," said Senior Associate Athletic Director Eddie Duffey. "We are excited about the enthusiasm our fan base has and look forward to another successful Big Blue Friday."

Big Blue Fridays feature opportunities where fans can receive discounts, complimentary products or services at one of 15 friends of the UWG Wolves, just by wearing your West Georgia blue. Typically, a Big Blue Friday in Carrollton will take place on a Friday that is part of an action-packed weekend of home West Georgia athletic events.

Fans can don their West Georgia blue shirt or jacket and receive great deals at the locations listed below. UWG Athletics would like to thank all of these local businesses for their support for Big Blue Friday.
