The UTC Mocs Club and the Student Government Association’s Athletics Committee are pleased to announce FREE PARKING for UTC students for the remaining four home football games on the 2013 schedule. The Mocs host Western Carolina this weekend at 6:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) at Finley Stadium to debut the FREE student parking.
“Our students have been fantastic for the first two games of the season,” stated Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics David Blackburn. “However, we are always looking for ways to get more of them to our football games. They asked last week at their SGA meeting about free parking, and we went to work to make that happen.”
The UTC Mocs Club, along with the help of SGA Athletics Committee Chair Ryen Rae, secured the lot at 1410 Chestnut Street for student parking. This lot is located just north of the corner of Chestnut and Main Streets and is marked on the photo below.
Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. One individual per vehicle has to present a valid and updated Mocs Card before entering the lot. It opens at Noon for the next two games that kickoff at 6:00 p.m., and at 8:00 a.m., for the last two games of the season that kickoff at 2:00 p.m.
Carpooling is encouraged, since there is limited space in the lot. Tailgating is also permitted, or students can join the pregame festivities in the First Tennessee Pavilion.
This is the only lot allowing free parking for students so be sure to get there early before it fills up. Due to the expected high demand, saving spaces will not be permitted. As always, admission to the game is FREE for UTC students with a valid Mocs Card.
