WVU Basketball

The annual WVU men’s basketball alumni game will make its return July 6 at Fairmont State. 

The charity game brings back Mountaineer favorites from across the program’s storied history to play against each other – all in the name of giving back to the community. Over four years, the game has raised $25,000 for various charities and causes.

This year, player and event organizer John Flowers said the alumni game will benefit Special Olympics West Virginia. 

“We’re hyped to be back,” said Flowers. “We want our fifth year to be the biggest, raising the most we ever have for our chosen charity. And, we want our fans to have the most fun.”

This year’s event will also feature some new elements. According to a release, fans will also be able to give back to charity through purchasing exclusive experiences, which are yet to be announced. Merchandise will also be available at the event, and available for pre-order online.

Tickets are on sale now at from $15, with general admission, sideline and baseline seating options available.
