CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Sebastian the Ibis, Miami Hurricanes cheerleaders, the Sunsations and the student-athletes from football, baseball, men's basketball, women's basketball, volleyball, women's tennis and swimming & diving highlight the annual BankUnited CanesFest this Saturday at BankUnited Center.
The free event is set to run from 4-7 p.m. Saturday. Free parking is available in the BankUnited Center lots. Doors will open at 4 p.m. and the football team is expected to sign autographs and meet fans from 5-7 p.m.
Coaches and student-athletes will be available to sign autographs. As part of the University of Miami’s commitment to NCAA compliance and in light of recent national news, student-athletes will only sign the official Miami Hurricanes athletics team posters that will be provided for free at the event. Please do not bring or ask student-athletes to sign other items. Your cooperation and support for the athletics department in complying with NCAA regulations is greatly appreciated.
With a large crowd expected and a limited amount of time available, it is highly unlikely that fans will be able to receive an autograph of every player in attendance. To accommodate as many people as possible, fans will only receive one poster (per person) for the autograph line. Fans will be allowed to take additional posters as they exit the event.
In addition to the autograph signing, 2013 BankUnited #CanesFest events will include:
- “Dress Like a Miami Hurricane” photo booth
- ACC Championship Trophies photo booth
- Homestead-Miami Speedway Race Car photo opportunity
- Purchase single-game and season tickets
- UM Bookstore Merchandise on sale
Single-game and season tickets are on sale now at www.CanesTix.com. The only way to attend the highly anticipated matchup between the Florida Gators and Canes is by purchasing a small amount of remaining season tickets.
