Fan Jam Presented By MutualBank Set For Saturday

Annual free event involving Ball State’s fall sports teams set for 5-7 p.m. at Scheumann Stadium


MUNCIE – Have you ever wanted to race a Ball State wide receiver in a 40-yard dash, catch passes from a Cardinals quarterback or learn how to tackle like a Ball State linebacker?  What about attempting to dig a volleyball hit by a Cardinals women’s volleyball player?  Perhaps you want to fire a shot on goal like the women on Ball State’s soccer and field hockey teams?


The annual highlight of summer for many members of the Ball State community and Cardinals fans of all ages returns from 5-7 p.m. Saturday at Scheumann Stadium.


Fan Jam, presented by MutualBank, is a free opportunity to meet members of Ball State’s football, women’s volleyball, soccer and field hockey teams in a fun, casual setting. 


Interactive stations will be set up for all Cardinals fans to test their skills against their favorite Ball State student-athletes. Team posters from each of the fall sports will be available for autographs from the student-athletes and coaches.


This year’s Fan Jam features free food and beverages, while supplies last, from Chick-fil-A, Jimmy John’s, Marsh, McDonald’s, Papa John’s, Pepsi and Texas Roadhouse.  The merchandise stand at Scheumann Stadium will be open so fans can purchase Cardinal and White apparel for this season.  WLBC-FM will also be present at Scheumann Stadium conducting a live broadcast.


The Ball State soccer team hosts IUPUI in an exhibition match beginning at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Briner Sports Complex, located adjacent to Scheumann Stadium.  Fans will be able to get a preview of the 2014 Cardinals either before or after their visit to Fan Jam.


Admission and parking for both Fan Jam and the soccer exhibition match are free.


Ball State fans should also circle Sunday on their calendar as the annual Kickoff Dinner featuring the Ball State football team is slated for Worthen Arena, beginning at 5 p.m.  Registration is currently open for the event where fans dine with members of the football team. 

Tickets for Cardinal Varsity Club members are $25 per person, $20 for children ages 5-12 and children under 5 are free.  A $75 family four pack also exists for CVC members.  Future CVC members are able to purchase tickets for $35 per person, $25 for children ages 5-12 and children under 5 are free.  The family four pack for non-CVC members is $95.  Reservations may be made by calling the CVC office at 765-285-8120 or emailing


The Cardinals open the 2014 season at 2 p.m. Aug. 30 versus Colgate at Scheumann Stadium.  Ball State – the only team in the nation to increase its win total in each of the last four seasons – plays six games at Scheumann Stadium in 2014, including five on Saturdays.  Season tickets, multi-game flex packages and single-game tickets are all on sale now.  The Cardinals are proud to offer the best value in college football as season ticket prices begin at less than $8 per game.  For more information on pricing plans, visit
