AMHERST, Mass. - After the success of last year's event, the UMass football team will once again field an Alumni Team as part of this season's Spring Game which will be held Saturday, April 20 at McGuirk Stadium. The game will begin at 4:00 PM as the current Minutemen take on the Alumni Team for the first half before moving to a traditional intra-squad scrimmage for the second half. Admission to the Spring Game along with all events during the day are free to all.

The day will be full of activities for UMass football alumni and fans. For the second year in a row, the Minutemen will hold a Captain's Breakfast where former team captains will gather with the current senior class. Last year's event featured the return of several Hall of Fame players whose impact resonated with players and staff.

There will also be an autograph session with current and alumni players along with a Youth Clinic prior to the Spring Game. The autograph session will begin at 12:30 PM, while the Youth Clinic will run from 1:00-2:30 PM.

To register for the Youth Clinic (children in grades 1-through-8), please contact the UMass Athletic Marketing Department at 413-577-7252 or via e-mail at
