MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University Athletic Department announced its 125 years of football campaign started on May 1.
Today, the special website, produced to help relive and recapture the great history, the unforgettable moments, players, coaches and teams that make up one of college football’s most storied programs, has launched. Fans can access the site at WVUsports.com/125.
The site has special features, classic videos (some never-seen before), interactive graphics and fan poll voting to help celebrate the 125-year tradition. A fan vote tournament of the great teams is underway to determine what fans believe are the greatest.
Updated content will be added to the site throughout the campaign.
Later this summer, season ticket holders will receive a commemorative flag with the 125-year logo to display at home, work or while travelling to their destinations.
Fans are being asked to take their own unique photos with the 125-year flags using the #WVU125 hashtag, wherever their travels take them, during the summer months. Photos will be shared on all of WVU official social media platforms, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Members of the athletic department have been searching the archives for unique content, photos and videos to post on the website as well as on its social media platforms. All these items will be recognized as they will have the hashtag #WVU125 when they are posted to commemorate the celebration. Fans can send in their own unique photos and memories using the #WVU125 hastag.
