GAME DAY TRADITIONS Ignite the Flame Before the Game! Game day is a lot more fun when you tailgate! Traditionally, fans and students have primarily tailgated in the first row of Speakman Lot (adjacent to University Boulevard). This year, Liberty Athletics wants to increase tailgating presence in all game day areas. Join us for tailgating this season and experience Liberty Football game day like never before!
"The Walk": A new tradition that began in the 2015 season. Fans are encouraged to leave their tailgate area to welcome the team as they arrive to campus approximately two (2) hours and 30 minutes prior to kickoff. On Saturday, fans will join Liberty cheerleaders, drumline and Sparky at 1 p.m. to welcome the team as they walk to Williams Stadium down University Boulevard near the Welcome Center and Bookstore through Gate 1.
The Raising of the 71 Flag: This is a special time on game day to remember the founder of Liberty University, Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr. The 71 Flag is raised at Williams Stadium 20 minutes prior to kickoff every game.
Go Flames Go! After big defensive stops or as the Flames defense come onto the field, Liberty Athletics introduced a new chant to fire up our defense!
Move Those Chains! Make sure to join the fun on every Liberty first down by yelling with the student section. The PA Announcer will get it going with "That's another Liberty!!" to which the entire stadium chants "FIRST DOWN! Ohhh, Move those chains, move those chains, move those chains, HAAAAAH!"
FOUR QUARTERS OF FURY: Stick around every game for all 60 minutes to cheer on our Flames! We'll shoot out 3 Gatling Gun shots throughout the 4th quarter with 4QF Shirts!
