The ECU athletic department hosted the annual “Meet the Pirates” night on Saturday night inside Minges Coliseum. The event was supposed to be held at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, but the threat of bad weather forced the event indoors.

“Meet the Pirates” gave fans the chance to interact with all the ECU fall sports teams including football, volleyball, women’s soccer cheer and dance.

Hundreds of fans turned out for autographs and pictures with their favorite Pee-Dee and their favorite Pirate student-athletes and coaches. 

The event marks the start of the fall sports calendar which kicks off on Sunday night when the ECU women’s soccer team hosts Radford at Johnson Stadium at 7 p.m.
