BEAR DOWN WITH PRIDE
Wildcat fans, we need your help in making Arizona Stadium the loudest and classiest in the nation. One of the primary goals of the University of Arizona Athletics Department is to promote first class conduct at each of our athletics events. It is important that coaches, players, staff, spirit groups, students and fans represent the University in a positive manner at all times. The University of Arizona has many traditions, but bad sportsmanship isn’t one of them. If you see it, report it and text any stadium problems to firstname.lastname@example.org, Remember to Bear Down with Pride.

JOIN THE WILDCAT WALK
Prior to every Arizona home game, fans are encouraged to welcome the Wildcats to campus as the team arrives 1 hour and 45 minutes prior to kickoff. The team will unload from busses at the corner of University and Cherry Avenue, where it will be greeted by the Pride of Arizona marching band to begin the Wildcat Walk. Fans are encouraged to flank the processional route along Cherry Ave. as the Wildcats head south on foot towards Arizona Stadium.
**Special Parking information regarding the Wildcat Walk**
For our fans who have parking permits in either the Cherry Garage (E permits) or the Optical sciences lot (C1 permits), please adjust your arrival in these areas during this time as all traffic will be closed off during the Wildcat Walk. Cherry Ave. from University to Enke Drive will be closed off to all traffic from 4:45pm to 5:45pm this Saturday. Cherry garage permit holders can continue to access the garage from the south entrance off of National Championship Drive or Enke Drive. C1 permit holders will need to wait until the walk clears before they can access the lot again. We would encourage all C1 permit holders to arrive by 4:45 p.m. to avoid the closure and be a part of the Wildcat Walk.
