COOKEVILLE – College Colors Day – the annual holiday that celebrates collegiate fandom – returns on Friday, Sept. 3, alongside the 2021 college football season opening weekend. The annual College Colors Day encourages Golden Eagle fans from coast-to-coast to don their favorite Tennessee Tech apparel on a single day to showcase how the sport can bring people together.
The Golden Eagles open their fall football campaign on Thursday, Sept. 2 at Samford.
Created by the university’s licensing partner, CLC, College Colors Day unites Tennessee Tech fans across the country in showing their passion, spirit and the joy of supporting the Golden Eagles by wearing Tech gear and sharing pictures and videos on social media using #CollegeColorsDay. The Golden Eagles football season starts Sept. 2 with an away game at Samford.
“The connection that the Golden Eagles have is so powerful because it’s about belonging to a passionate community bound together by common traditions and spirit,” said Nicole Armentrout, Senior Vice President of Marketing at CLC. “Coming off an unprecedented year for fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s College Colors Day highlights that feeling when you can reunite with other Golden Eagle fans to cheer on your team. We can’t wait to see Golden Eagle fans posting pictures of themselves wearing their Tennessee Tech gear on College Colors Day to share their excitement for the upcoming season.”
In addition to showing their spirit, Golden Eagles fans are invited to visit www.CollegeColorsDay.com for a chance to win tickets and a trip to the national championship game in Indianapolis through CLC’s partnership with the College Football Playoff and its charitable arm, Extra Yard for Teachers. The website also contains graphics and resources for fans to celebrate College Colors Day, including a “meme generator” to create fun, sharable memes focused on their fandom.
“We want all Golden Eagle fans to wear their gear and show their spirit for College Colors Day,” said Bobbie Maynard, Tech’s Executive Director of Communications and Marketing. “Mark your calendars for Sept. 3, grab your gear and show the world why Tennessee Tech is the best.”
After an unprecedented fall 2020, this year’s college football season is among the most anticipated in recent memory. College Colors Day offers Golden Eagle fans everywhere an opportunity to reignite the connection and camaraderie formed by wearing their purple and gold. Whether it’s the joy of attending a game in-person for the first time since the pandemic or gathering again with friends to watch from home, every fan is encouraged to show what “That Feeling When” means to them this College Colors Day.
