Local Ball State football fans had a great opportunity to meet members of the 2014 Ball State football team during the lunch hour Tuesday as the Cardinals participated in Paint the Town Red presented by Mutual Bank.

In a redesigned format this year, Ball State’s football team spread out between three locations from noon to 1:30 p.m. In conjunction with Downtown Muncie Development, the Cardinals were at Canan Commons in downtown Muncie, while Visit Muncie helped sponsor the event at the southside Walmart at 1501 E. 29th Street. Ball State football players also visited the Yorktown business district and sports complex.

At both the Canan Commons and southside Walmart events, fans enjoyed free hot dogs, chips and Pepsi plus music.  

Ball State fans should also save the date for two more opportunities to meet members of this year’s football team.  From 7-8 p.m. Monday, Ball State’s football team will be at Tuhey Pool, and the annual fan favorite event Fan Jam is set for 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16 at Scheumann Stadium.

The Cardinals kick off the 2014 season at 2 p.m. on 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
