Football season looks a little different this year, and so will the 2020 HAIL WV Experience. For 2020 we’re offering exclusive access to WVU Greats, a subscription box service and more!

Join the 2020 HAIL WV Experience

A New HAIL WV Experience 

Every year we try to give WVU football fans a unique experience by treating them to VIP access before each and every home game. This year, due to COVID-19, we don’t know what football season will look like for spectators and, quite frankly, we’re not positive that we can give WVU football fans the in-person VIP experience we strive to provide. So, for the 2020 season we’re switching things up.

This year HAIL WV will be a completely new experience for our most loyal supporters. Rather than an in-person experience, we’re offering a limited number of fans exclusive access to conversations with Mountaineer Greats like coach Don Nehlen and star Darryl Talley, who went on to play 14 seasons in the NFL. HAIL members will join virtual conversations throughout the 2020 season to ask questions, discuss football strategy and learn more about the WVU Greats we love. 

What do former coaches think about an upcoming game against Texas? What was it like for Charles Emanuel to go from playing on Mountaineer Field to playing for the Philadelphia Eagles? 2020 HAIL WV members will be able to ask all of their questions and relive their favorite Mountaineer moments.

In addition, members of the 2020 HAIL WV Experience will receive subscription packages to their homes throughout the season with exclusive gifts and gear you can’t find anywhere else. 

If we could, we’d love to be celebrating every WVU football game at The Erickson like we always do. But, because that isn’t possible this year, we’re offering new opportunities to stay connected and show your love for WVU football in uncertain times. 

2020 Hail WV Experience Benefits:
