Rocket Fridays will return to The University of Toledo campuses Aug. 29, just in time for UT’s home-opening football game vs. New Hampshire.

Rocket Fridays webThe initiative is designed to increase school pride by encouraging all UT students, faculty, staff and alumni to wear their Rocket attire or midnight blue and gold clothing every Friday.

The first Rocket Friday will be Aug. 29; the Rockets will host the Wildcats in the Glass Bowl Saturday, Aug. 30, at 7 p.m.

Rocket fans are encouraged to post photos of themselves wearing their UT gear on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #RocketFridays. The best two submissions each week will receive prizes of $50 and $25, respectively, to Rocky’s Locker, located in the Sullivan Athletic Complex at Savage Arena.

UT athletics officials also will be on campuses every Friday during the school year to select two winners for the best Rocket attire. Winners will receive a pair of tickets to a football, men’s basketball or women’s basketball game. One winner will be chosen from the Main/Scott Park campuses and one from Health Science Campus.

As a special Rocket Fridays promotion, Rocky’s Locker will give all UT students, faculty, staff, alumni and fans 25 percent off selected items in the store on the first Thursday of each month. The first Thursday special will be Sept. 4. The 25 percent Rocket Friday discount cannot be combined with the Ultimate Fan Plan or any other promotional offers. UT faculty and staff receive 10 percent off all other times, while UT students receive 20 percent off.

For more information, call Rocky’s Locker at 419.530.5432 or stop by the shop.
