    EVANSTON, Ill. -- As the anticipation builds for the 2013 Northwestern Football season, one sure sign that kickoff is near is NU's annual Meet the Team Night at Ryan Field, slated this year for 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23. Hosted on Walker Terrace overlooking the north end zone of Ryan Field, this free event offers Wildcats fans of all ages the chance to get to know their favorite players and participate in fun on-field activities.

    Northwestern fans in attendance at Meet the Team Night also will be the first to obtain the official 2013 Northwestern Football poster and have it autographed by members of the 22nd-ranked Wildcats.

    Eighth-year head coach and College Football Hall-of-Famer Pat Fitzgerald also will be on hand to preview the upcoming season and publicly announce for the first time his 2013 team captains.

    From there, fans are invited to meet and mingle with the Wildcats, who will be separated into groups by position and scattered around the Ryan Field turf. Young 'Cats fans are encouraged to play catch, kick field goals, take pictures and run races on Ryan Field, all with members of Chicago's Big Ten Team.

     

     

    Free parking will be available in the Ryan Field East and West parking lots. The event ends at approximately 8 p.m. For more information on Meet the Team Night, please email wildcatmarketing@northwestern.edu.

    Season tickets and group ticket packages for Northwestern's exciting 2013 home football season are on sale now and are available by calling 888-GO-PURPLE or by visiting NU's online ticket sales center. Coming off a 10-3 season a year ago, the Wildcats make their debut at Ryan Field at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, when they host ACC foe Syracuse.
