Yale Football Invades NYC - Yale @ Columbia!

Click here for event registration and more details:

The bulldogs continue their run for another Ivy Championship with a visit to Columbia... just a quick subway ride (1 or A trains) uptown.  YAAMNY will be rocking the visitor section!

Columbia's Wien Stadium was featured in Sports Illustrated as one of the most beautiful places in the country to watch a football game.

We are organizing a section in the visitor stands, as well as a mini-tailgate before the game at noon.  Just $10 for the ticket + mini-tailgate (with some refreshments) if you register this week... still just $15 after that!  What a deal!  We'll send out the meetup/tailgate location closer to gametime.
