Background[]

Pitt's spring football game should be played in the South Side at Cupples Stadium and be part of a big community celebration for sports.

In 2015, the event can come with a South Side Saturday Sports Celebration and be with a parade down East Carson Street, players, coaches and others marching from the UPMC practice facility to Cupples Stadium at 9th Street. Then we can have a huge alumni, homecoming in various eating establishments, by class and major too. All the Pitt teams should be involved, and the sandlot teams too.

  • Pitt got about 3,642 fans at the game in 2013 at a WPIAL field.
