WKUBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (7/23/19) — WKU's annual Fan Fest will return to E.A. Diddle Arena on Saturday, August 10 as first-year head football coach Tyson Helton and his team, as well as Lady Topper soccer and volleyball, welcome Hilltopper Nation from 2 pm. to 4 p.m., for the annual kickoff event.

Highlighted by autographs and interactive stations with the entire 2019 Hilltopper football squad, it will be a carnival atmosphere inside Diddle Arena with inflatables, face painting, balloon artists and more. The Lady Topper soccer and volleyball teams will also be on-hand to sign autographs.

Fans will have their first opportunity to get their hands on the brand new 2019 schedule posters and purchase season tickets for both Football and Volleyball.

Head volleyball coach Travis Hudson and his squad will also hold an intrasquad scrimmage from 3-4 p.m. in the auxiliary gym that will be open to the public.

Fans can park in both parking garages around Diddle Arena and enter through the US Bank entrance, near the WKU Ticket Office. The first 500 fans in the door can also take advantage of free ice cream provided by Chaney's Dairy Barn as well.

The 2019 football season, presented by LifeSkills, begins with a 6:30 p.m. kickoff on Thursday, August 29 vs. Central Arkansas at Houchens-Smith Stadium. WKU returns 16 starters on offense and defense, the third-most nationally, while the team's 10 returning starters on offense rank as the most in the nation.

Entering his 25th season at the helm of the Lady Topper volleyball program, Hudson has led the Red and White to eight of a possible 10 Conference USA championships since joining the league prior to the 2014 campaign. WKU opens its season on Aug. 30 against Loyola in Toledo, Ohio, before making its home debut on Sept. 10 vs. Eastern Kentucky.

Head coach Jason Neidell's Lady Topper soccer team is set to begin its 2019 campaign with an exhibition contest against Murray State on Aug. 14 at 6 p.m. at the WKU Soccer Complex.
