University of Hawaii football welcomes fans to ‘Braddahhood’ with Spring Game

University of Hawaii football fans are invited to join the “Braddahhood” and cheer on the Rainbow Warriors at the 2022 Island Day Football Spring Game at the Clarence T. C. Ching Athletics Complex on Saturday, April 16.

New Head Coach Timmy Chang is thanking fans for their overwhelming support by making the last scrimmage of spring practice a community celebration. This free event is open to the public and will include activities for kids, food trucks, beer gardens, vendors and live entertainment.

“It’s basically a party atmosphere. I want this place packed. I want this place rowdy and let’s come have fun with our football boys,” Chang said. “They’ve been working out all spring. They can’t wait to see you, come liven this place up.”

Gates open at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, with kickoff at 6 p.m. and followed by an autograph session with Coach Chang and the Rainbow Warriors.

Parking is $5 and will be available on a first come, first serve basis in the athletic parking complex and on upper campus. Parking can be purchased on event day at the parking booths located near the point of entry at Dole St. or Waialae Ave. gates.

Alternate Parking (Upper Campus): There are two entry gates into Upper Campus; Maile Way and East West Road. Parking may be purchased at the kiosks upon entry for $5 on game day. Please follow all parking guards and staff directions as they assist in directing fans to Upper Campus lots.
