WACO, Texas – In less than a month, the green and gold will enter the field of competition. To further unite the Baylor family, the Baylor Athletics division announced its “Go Gold” initiative for the upcoming athletic season. Fans are invited to visually unite in gold throughout the year, creating visual impact for opposing teams and fans alike.
The gold factor was contagious at the 2022 Sugar Bowl, and it’s time to bring that same energy back to the Baylor campus. Each of Baylor’s 19 sports will be awarded gold at their conference home opener this year. Baylor Athletics is committed to providing gold giveaways at these games ranging from gold poms, gold rally towels to apparel.
“We want to create something special that Baylor fans can look forward to every year,” he said Jovan exaggerated, senior associate athletic director for external operations. “Our goal is to create an atmosphere that leaves a physical impression. From the moment the opposing team takes center stage, we want them to feel the presence of our fans. If you have 45,000 fans in gold, the visual impact is impressive and strong. Gold stands for Preparing Champions for Life. It’s the gold standard we expect our student athletes to be by, and we hope our fans will join us in this visual rally and wear gold all year long.”
To celebrate the Go Gold initiative, Baylor Athletics has created official Go Gold apparel. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase exclusive Go Gold apparel at the Baylor Bookstore and licensed apparel partners. Equipment can be pre-ordered herebut the first opportunity to purchase in person is at Baylor’s annual Meet the Bears event on Saturday, August 27th.
“The Go Gold initiative is an exciting opportunity for Baylor to prepare and show our cohesive entity,” said Larissa Rupley, Area Director of Retail Shops at Baylor University. “We are committed to creating a range of merchandise to offer fans a variety of ways to join the ‘Golden Wave’ of solidarity.”
