For two weeks, Mountaineer fans had the opportunity to vote for their favorite shirt designs, front and back, and color, gold or blue. On a blue shirt for the first time, the 2014-15 Fan Shirt will feature “Forever a Mountaineer” as the front and the Mountaineer Mascot and state of West Virginia as the back.
In total, 17,500 votes were cast for their favorite design online at http://fanshirt.wvu.edu or via text message. Blue earned 57 percent of the vote. “Forever a Mountaineer” received 59 percent of the vote.
“Forever a Mountaineer” is inspired by the passion and pride of Mountaineer fans from around the world and the knowledge that once you’re a fan, it’s a bond you’ll have forever.
The shirts will be available to purchase in June at ShopWVU.com or at your local WVU/Nike retailer. The shirts will be available in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes.
The winning shirt design was announced at the Gold-Blue Spring Game on Saturday (April 12). The WVU fan shirt is the official shirt for the 2014-15 school year.
