Wednesday marks the start of another new era for the Royals.

At Wednesday night’s basketball game, EMU will hold its first ever Rowdy Royals Game.

At a Rowdy Royals Game, all 263 of EMU’s student-athletes will attend to support their fellow Royals playing in the game.

Each of the Eastern Mennonite teams that host an event on campus selected one date in their upcoming season as a Rowdy Royals Game. The full weight of EMU’s student-athletes will then be present in the stands for the game, wearing either the black EMU Royals t-shirt they received at the year-opening Royals Night or a vintage EMU uniform from any sport. There will also be special giveaways or contests at those games. Student-athletes are encouraged to post pictures and videos on social media, using the #RowdyRoyals.
