VESTAL, N.Y. – The Binghamton Athletic Department has announced its 2012 Homecoming Weekend Schedule. Held from Oct. 12-14, the three-day, campus-wide event brings many alumni back to campus and includes numerous activities throughout the university.
This year, Late Nite Madness, the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony highlight the Athletic Department’s Homecoming Weekend events. In addition, there are home games for three of Binghamton’s fall sports programs and several alumni games.
For the fourth time in the past five years, Time Warner Sports will be televising the men’s soccer team’s Homecoming game, which will be against Vermont on Saturday, Oct. 13 starting at 7 p.m. at the Bearcats Sports Complex. In the Binghamton market, the game will be on Time Warner Channels 23 and 813. Since 2008, the men’s soccer Homecoming Game has averaged over 2,000 fans and has sold out twice. Once again, there will be a post game fireworks following the men’s soccer game behind the Bearcats Sports Complex on the East side of campus.
Preceding the men’s soccer match will be the Fifth Annual Homecoming Tailgate from 4-7 p.m. in the Events Center parking lot. Also during that three-hour stretch will be the athletic department’s tent sale, which will be held in the Events Center lobby.
