RELEASE: Wolfpack To Partner With Gigi's Playhouse Of Raleigh For Spring Game

March 2, 2020

The NC State football program is teaming up with Gigi’s Playhouse of Raleigh to make the 2020 Wolfpack spring football game one to remember. This special event will kick off at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 4 at Carter-Finley Stadium and admission and parking are free.

The game will be broadcast live on the ACC Network.

The Pack has established a relationship with Gigi’s Playhouse – a Down’s Syndrome achievement center – over the past several years by hosting Victory Day and by having Gigi’s participants visit weekly during the football season. 

Now, the Pack’s friends from Gigi’s will play an integral part in the overall gameday experience by working alongside NC State coaches, players and staff in many aspects of  the day's activities. At the same time, Wolfpack Nation will get its first glimpse of the 2020 squad and the coaching staff that includes five new members.

"This group of awesome people means so much to our players and staff and we're excited to make them a part of our spring game,” said head coach Dave Doeren. “I want to encourage all of Wolfpack Nation to come out and help us give them an unforgettable day and to see our 2020 squad in action."

Carter-Finley Stadium parking lots open at 8 a.m. and stadium gates 2-4 on the East side and 7-9 on the West side will open at 11:30 a.m. 

A Fan Zone with face painters, balloon artists, inflatables and more will provide pregame entertainment and at halftime, the K9 Crew Disc Dog Team will perform. Following the game, fans will be able to come down to the field for autographs and photos with the Wolfpack squad and to meet the Gigi’s participants.

This will mark the 12th year that NC State has utilized the football team’s spring game to expand its philanthropic efforts. This year’s partnership with Gigi’s playhouse offers a unique opportunity to connect the student-athletes and fans to the Raleigh community. The Wolfpack will continue to support the Kay Yow Cancer Fund through Play4Kay and multitudes of other ways throughout the department.
