Northwest Missouri State University will bring its recent national championship trophies to Kansas City this summer when it sponsors its second annual Northwest Night at the K on Thursday, June 8, at Kauffman Stadium.
The Northwest Alumni Association will host, giving fans opportunities to take photos with the 2016 NCAA Division II football national championship and 2017 NCAA Division II men’s basketball national championship trophies. Fans also are encouraged to wear their Northwest gear.
Ticket packages are $55 for View Box Section 417 or $75 for Field Plaza Section 208. Both packages include a tailgate ticket, game ticket and Northwest pennant. Field Plaza packages also include a GordoNation T-shirt and Alex Gordon big head, courtesy of the Kansas City Royals.
All Northwest ticket holders will receive a tailgate meal that includes grilled hot dogs, cheeseburgers, pasta salad, baked beans, chips, cookies, salad and a bottled water or soft drink. The Northwest tailgate begins at 5 p.m. at the Hall of Fame Pavilion, located on the west side of Kauffman Stadium.
“The Northwest Night at the K provides Kansas City-area Bearcats the opportunity to come together to cheer on the Royals while celebrating all things Northwest, especially our recent national championships in football and basketball,” Bob Machovsky, Northwest’s director of alumni relations and annual giving, said. “With over 10,000 Northwest alumni living in the Kansas City metro, we see the importance of hosting family friendly events that allow Bearcats young and old to come together to have some fun and watch some great baseball.”
The Royals game will be the fourth night of a four-game series versus the Houston Astros.
The deadline to purchase ticket packages is Thursday, June 1, or while supplies last. Tickets may be picked up beginning at 4:30 p.m. on the night of the game at the green Northwest Alumni Association tent, located outside the stadium’s Hall of Fame Pavilion.
Fans who already have tickets to the game and want to attend the tailgate should contact the Northwest Alumni House at 660.562.1248 for details.
