Move NIU Football Games to Saturdays

This petition had 244 supporters


All Northern Illinois Students know that the best part of fall semester is tailgating football games. NIU has reduced the number of home games that are on Saturdays to only two for the 2017 season. Illinois State, a school that often draws comparisons to NIU, for comparison has every single game on a Saturday. This transition from weekend games is bound to hurt student attendance as well as attendance from nearby fans, and opposing schools. This will clearly affect the amount of money NIU is able to make off of football games to fund our athletics programs. Finally, a lack of an strong athletics program is, for many people, a major factor when choosing which university they would like to attend. It is imperative that NIU moves its football games to Saturdays in order to increase student happiness, increase attendance and revenue, and increase appeal to prospective students.
