The evening’s Cardinal basketball games see men’s and women’s teams battling against the Moberly Greyhounds. Fans are encouraged to wear red to show support for the MAC basketball teams.

“If you don’t have a red shirt then show up early and get one for free,” said Mike Overman, MAC athletic director. “Special homecoming t-shirts will be given away for free while supplies last.

In addition to the athletic side of homecoming, performances, games and activities should make for a fun evening for the entire family. The MAC and Flat River Junior College yearbooks will be available in the dining room off the gym, a photo booth will be set up nearby and the Bookstore will feature fantastic deals on MAC apparel and merchandise. Bookstore opens at 4 p.m. At 4:30 p.m., getting close to game time, MAC’s Music Department, will perform classic hits to warm up the crowd. The Lady Cardinals take on Moberly at 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for youths.

Between the games, as the crowd packs the stands preparing to cheer their teams to victory in full, Kirby the Cardinal will strut his stuff on the floor.

MAC Cheerleaders will be hosting a clinic on Friday, February 2 from 4:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. in the evening for ages 5-13! The cost is $25 per child, this will include a t shirt and they will perform with the college cheerleaders at halftime for the men's game.

Then it’s time for the men’s basketball game against Moberly at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for youths, or free for those who already paid to attend the women’s basketball game.

But it doesn’t stop there—after the game, kids can join Kirby the Cardinal and Athletic Director Mike Overman on the gym floor to shoot some hoops like a MAC Cardinal. There will be something for everyone at the 2018 MAC Homecoming. Gather the family and pack the stands with Cardinal Red!
