Georgia State fans are invited to celebrate the start of the 2013 season at the GSU Football Kickoff Luncheon, presented by the Panther Athletic Club, on Thursday, Aug. 22 at the East Lake Golf Club.

This annual event features new head coach Trent Miles, his staff and players and provides fans with an inside look at the upcoming season. Making a special appearance will be Sun Belt Conference Commissioner Karl Benson, who will discuss Georgia State's move to the Sun Belt and the evolving landscape of college athletics. New for this year's luncheon, fans will have the opportunity to voice their questions and have them answered by coach Miles and a player. 

Doors will open at 11:30 a.m., when a silent auction will feature items such as a new anthracite helmet signed by head coach Trent Miles. The program will begin at noon.

Tables for the event are available for $1100 and include seating for eight guests. Tables will also include two seats for GSU football student-athletes or coaches. Individual tickets are available for $110 per seat.

To purchase tickets, contact Misty Brown via phone at 404.413.4170 or email at
