Having fun comes in a lot of different forms and Bearkat Athletics has a little something for everyone. For some, the fun part is simply cheering on the home team. For others it's the in-game entertainment, special promotions, or the pageantry and tradition associated with intercollegiate athletics.  Regardless, there's no better way to spend time with your closest friends and family than a Bearkats game. 

We will help you eliminate the stress of actually putting your outing together. To accomplish this, we'll help you set everything up. We'll help you organize your tickets, work with you to promote your event, and make any necessary special arrangements that your group may need.

We've created some really great group outings and would love to be the scene of your next office party, birthday party, family or school reunion, or club outing.  Just give us a call at (936) 294-1729 and let us help you get started!
