Athletics launches first Fan Committee

Marshall Athletics announced Thursday the plans for its first Fan Committee. The athletic department is now accepting applications for the Marshall Fan Committee in search of members who can help create the best fan experience on Thundering Herd gamedays and throughout the year.

“Our Fan Committee will play a critical role in helping us develop our gameday experiences,” said Christian Spears, Marshall’s director of athletics. “If you have great ideas for us, please complete the application. We are excited to put together a great group.”

Those interested in applying for the Marshall Fan Committee can do so here:

The application period is open until Friday, July 8, at 11:45 p.m. The athletic department is looking for a diverse pool of members, composed of 20 to 25 people. Members who are selected are appointed to a term of two years, with meetings occurring quarterly.

The committee will be announced in the coming weeks, with the first meeting scheduled for late July. The Marshall Fan Committee is open to all fans.

The committee will focus on enhancing all aspects of the Marshall Athletics fan experience, including, but not limited to, athletic department communication; fan outreach; in-game experience; facility amenities; ticketing and donor support; and customer service.
