Mercer University has launched a website to help people enjoy the Bears' return to football after 72 years.
On Saturday, Aug. 31, Mercer will play its first game since 1941 when it faces Reinhardt University. Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m. at Mercer University Field.
The university said students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the Bears are encouraged to visit www.mercergameday.com.
The website contains information aimed to make football gamedays in Macon safe and enjoyable, the university said.
The website features a season schedule, gameday schedule, maps of the Moye Football and Lacrosse Complex, campus parking and tailgating and downtown parking and shuttle to campus, as well as stadium and tailgating policies and listings of hotels and restaurants nearby.
There are also links to follow every play on radio on 96.5 FM and a fan guide available for download.
