Baylor Stadium Groundbreaking during Community Day Saturday at Floyd Casey Stadium

Sept. 12, 2012

The impact of a strong Baylor-Waco partnership has never been more apparent. We stand on the brink of a new and exciting Home Field Advantage — one fueled by the economic impact of Baylor Stadium and a city in which fans — exhilarated by the most recent Baylor victory — flock to restaurants and hotels along the river's edge and to an eclectic mix of shops and businesses that buzz with the energy of a vibrant downtown.

Join us for Community Day at Floyd Casey Stadium Saturday and be a part of history as city officials, alumni donors and University leaders break ground for the new Baylor Stadium.

Game day events include:

  • 3 p.m. United Way Tailgate in Touchdown Alley - First 500 fans receive a free Community Day t-shirt.

  • 3:30 p.m. Team arrives for March of the Bears.

  • 6:05 p.m. Kickoff! First 40,000 fans receive a commemorative game-day button.

  • Halftime United Way recognition, Baylor's Golden Wave Marching Band salutes Waco, and Baylor Nation joins in a ceremonial stadium groundbreaking.
