West Virginia University is hosting its annual Gold-Blue Spring Football Game on Friday, April 30, at 7 p.m., at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium.

The gates open at 6 p.m., and tickets are available for $5 each. They can be purchased at the Milan Puskar Stadium gate on game day or in advance this week at the Mountaineer Ticket Office located in the WVU Coliseum. WVU students will be admitted free with a valid ID.

There will be no stadium re-entry passes issued for the game. Stadium seating, restrooms and concessions will be open on the west lower side only.

All stadium parking lots will open at 5 p.m., on Friday. The following east side lots are available for parking for this year’s Gold-Blue Game: F1, F2, D and E. The following hospital parking lots on the west side are available: A1, A2, M2, K1, K3 and L.

The center and west lots of the large Blue hospital parking areas (hospital parking lots C1-C7 and B) are reserved for hospital parking only and will not be available. (Click here for a map for further information).

Fans are encouraged to attend the Mountaineer Fan Festival in the stadium lot (K2) adjacent to the Ronald McDonald House from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., featuring inflatable games for kids and an autograph session with select former Mountaineer football players.

Festivities are set to begin at 7 p.m., with an old-timers game, featuring former Mountaineer players. The intra-squad scrimmage under the lights will conclude WVU’s spring football drills. The offense will be wearing gold uniforms, and the defense will don the blue uniforms.

Once again this year, there will not be an autograph session following the game, and fans will not be permitted on the field. Mountaineer Football will conduct its annual Fan Day in August with details being released later this summer.
