GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- North Dakota football fans will get the opportunity to meet the coaching staff and hear all about the Fighting Hawks' 2018 recruiting class next Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the program's annual Signing Day Party set for the Alerus Center.
Head coach Bubba Schweigert and his staff have been working hard to secure the next wave of North Dakota football players and they will all be on hand to unveil the 2018 class on the main concourse.
The event will start at 5:30 p.m. with a meet-and-greet with fans before the official program starts at 6 p.m. Schweigert will introduce his staff and they will show highlight videos and talk about each new member of the football team.
Complimentary hor d'oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available starting at 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
The Signing Day Party will recap both the early signing period additions along with those future Fighting Hawks that sign their national letters of intent on Wednesday. The early signing period that was held in mid-December was the first of its kind for college football and Schweigert and his staff were able to secure 20 signatures for the upcoming class. The fifth-year head coach expects to add a handful more on Wednesday to bolster his roster even further.
Fans attending the party can also pledge their loyalties to North Dakota Football in 2018. Season tickets are on sale now and start at $94 per seat.
All season-ticket holders from 2017 will receive their 2018 renewal packet in mid-April, but can renew their football season tickets on their My North Dakota account at any time.
Fans can reserve their seats for the 2018 home slate by contacting the Ralph Engelstad Arena Box Office at 701-777-4689 or through online purchase here.
