Inside Marketing: Football in the Fall

On the first Monday of every month (a week early this month), a member of the Marketing staff  will give a behind-the-scenes look at what’s going on around its area and the department. Over the course of every month, each department will be featured at least once. Coming Wednesday: Panther Athletic Club

After a few weeks on the road and a bye week, we are excited to welcome the Georgia State football team home for two games in the month of October. They are exciting because one is our annual Homecoming game and the other will be our first match-up with Georgia Southern.

For both of those games, we know that a strong student presence can give us a great home field advantage, so with that said, we have an exciting opportunity for students to make some money.

First on the list is the $10,000 cash drop which will return for the Georgia Southern game. Students who wish to have a chance to participate will need to register at the Arkansas State game on Oct. 11. There will be a limit of 500 participants which is double the amount as last year.

Georgia State students will also have the chance to win $100 during the first three quarters and $200 in the fourth quarter for the football games on Oct. 11th against Arkansas State and on Oct. 25th against Georgia Southern. The student must be present to win.

If the award is not collected it will multiply to the next quarter. For example, if the $100 is not collected in the first quarter, we will give $200 in the second quarter and so on. The money will carry over to the next game if not collected. The maximum a student could win is $1000.

To be eligible to win, students must sign up for the competition throughout the weeks leading up to the games. Students will not be able to register for this prize at either of the football games.
