Student Council Water Distribution Program Activated for Richmond Football Game | UVA Student Council

Student Fans of Virginia Football,

Good news! While it might be hot for today’s game, you don’t have to suffer. One free water bottle will be provided to you by the Student Council Athletic Affairs Committee as part of our Water Distribution program. We love looking out for those wahoos that come out and support the Cavaliers against our football foes! Below is a little more information of the program and where you can get your water:

Student Council’s Athletic Affair Committee will be implementing our Water Distribution program at Virginia’s home football game against Richmond on Saturday, September 1st. Kickoff is at 3:00 p.m.

This marks the third time Student Council has implemented the program, following the William and Mary game in 2011 and the VMI game in 2010.

Every University student will receive one free bottle of water at a home football game if  the heat index (a combination of temperature and humidity) is expected to reach 90 degrees at any point after the gates open. In years past, one to two games have hit this threshold each season.

The bottled water will be distributed to University students at a tent located above Section 101. Water will be given out up until the end of the third quarter. Students must present a University ID to receive a bottle of water, and bottles will be limited to one per person. A student’s hand will be marked to indicate receipt of a free bottle of water.  Recycling bins will be placed in convenient locations throughout the student section of Scott Stadium.

We hope to see you all at the game! Go Hoos!

Brett Gazard and Julie Parent
