Are You Ready for Some Football?

There is something special about fall… the crisp air, pumpkin flavored everything, and FOOTBALL!

Our beloved Kansas City Chiefs took to the field on Sunday for the home opener. While the outcome wasn’t in our favor, many people gathered to celebrate the start of the season. The Jayhawks and Wildcats both brought victories home this weekend and the Missouri Western Griffins faced the University of Central Missouri Mules on Thursday in St. Joe. The Griffins came out on top with a 10-9 victory.

Whether you’re a football aficionado, fair-weather fan, or just cheering for the team with the best mascot, there’s something about football that ignites passion and brings us together. Maybe it’s the atmosphere? Maybe it’s the watch party food? Or maybe it’s the fact that sporting events are the original reality TV?! We, as a society, love football!

Do you remember being taught about first downs and why one field goal scored a team 3 points when another only scored them 1? Well, we hope that you will join us and the KU Athletic Department on October 11 to watch the Jayhawks take on the Oklahoma State University Cowboys to ignite passion for the sport in your girl and teach her basics of the game. We know this will be an experience that she will treasure for years to come!


On October 11, families will be able to participate in pre-game activities hosted by Kappa Delta Sorority at Memorial Stadium and Girl Scouts will be able to take a pregame photograph with the team on the field. Based on Girl Scout ticket sales, girls will be selected, at random, to welcome the players onto the field and participate in pre-game activities.

Visit our website for more information and purchase your tickets by October 7! Use the promo code to secure your seats with Girl Scouts from all over our region. For each ticket purchased, KU Athletics will donate $5 back to Girl Scouts. The more tickets purchased through PROMO Code: GIRLSCOUTS, the more opportunities Girl Scouts are provided to participate in on-field activities.

So make this a friends and family affair and share the love of the game with your girl!
