MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - A Soctoberfest celebration will be held at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium this Friday, Oct. 4, when the 10th-ranked West Virginia University women’s soccer team plays host to Texas. The match is scheduled for 7 p.m. and is a Gold Rush as all fans are encouraged to wear gold.

Soctoberfest will feature an evening full of American and German food and drink, including a Biergarten. German dishes such as sausage, pretzels, potato salad and more will be served, while Oktoberfest beers and domestic beers also will be available for purchase.

The match also is a “Dollar Night,” with all tickets, hot dogs, popcorn and Coca-Colas available for $1 each. Admission is free for WVU students with a valid student ID.

Fall Family Weekend opens this Friday on campus, and Mountaineer Parents Club members are encouraged to attend the soccer match. Kids under 13, who bring a completed Musket Coloring Sheet to the gate, will receive one free youth admission and will be entered into a drawing to win a plush Musket toy. The coloring sheet can be found at WVUsports.com.
