West Virginia University is calling Mountaineers everywhere to help choose the University’s newest official Fan Shirt.

Beginning April 6, WVU fans can vote for their favorite of three designs created by Nike. The voting will end April 27. To vote, visit: http://fanshirt.wvu.edu .

“We are very excited to allow our passionate fans the opportunity to vote for the official 2011 Fan Shirt,” said Nikki Goodenow, WVU Trademark Licensing coordinator. “This is another unique way to engage our fans in helping strengthen the Mountaineer spirit across campus.”

Fans can also vote via text message by texting wvushirt1, wvushirt2 or wvushirt3 to 41411. Shirts can be viewed online at http://fanshirt.wvu.edu .

All voters will be entered into a drawing, and five will receive official WVU apparel.

Fans are encouraged to wear the official shirt to support all WVU sports teams. Last year, WVU’s Official Fan Shirt was gold with a picture of the Mountaineer on the back. It read “Be a Mountaineer” on the front and “Leave no doubt” on the back.

The official design will be announced at the Gold-Blue Spring Game on Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. at Milan Puskar Stadium. Tickets are $10, and are available online at http://www.wvugame.com/ or by calling 1-800-WVU-GAME. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the WVU Children’s Hospital.
