For the first time in school history, San Jose State University Athletics will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with “Los Spartans Night,” which will take place Friday, Sept. 27, when SJSU Football takes on Utah State, with kickoff at 6 p.m. at Spartan Stadium. Nationally televised on ESPN, this game is a highly anticipated rematch. Utah State was one of only two teams that defeated the Spartans last season.

Prior to kickoff, San Jose State Athletics will host an Hispanic Heritage Night networking mixer beginning at 3 p.m. on the Spartan practice fields. Top Hispanic businesses and business owners will be in attendance as well as both on and off-campus Hispanic organizations. The mixer will include cultural performances, Hispanic music and food catered by Chavez Supermarkets, one of the official sponsors of this event.

Chavez Supermarkets has donated 1,000 Los Spartan Night t-shirts for those who purchase tickets. Fans can buy tickets online, by phone and at all Chavez Supermarkets. Fans who purchase tickets at Chavez Supermarkets will also receive two free children tickets (12 and under) with the purchase of every adult ticket.

Tickets are $25 and include entrance into the networking mixer event, a reserved seat in section 108, and a limited edition “Los Spartans Night” t-shirt. Supplies are limited. Even though San Jose State students are admitted free into Spartan home games, they must still purchase a ticket to be admitted into the networking event and to receive a “Los Spartans Night” t-shirt.
