On a clear Monday night, some Seattle University Redhawks got their wings.
Red Bull made its way on to campus to host a street soccer tournament between Championship Field and the Douglas Apartments. The street was closed off and the party was complete with a DJ, game commentator, Mad Dawgs hot dogs and a bunch of free Red Bull.
With classes cancelled on Veterans Day, it was a great opportunity to bring some students out to have a good time. The games were entertaining, and several students were drawn over to the festivities by the music.
The soccer tournament consisted of eight three-person teams in a double elimination bracket. Winning teams were awarded prizes. Once the tournament was finished, the group headed for the Chieftain which was hosting an afterparty for the event.
“It was nice big event to get people out,” said senior and Red Bull student brand manager Alexander Dow.
“We wanted to make something different and cool that people can get excited about, something they haven’t experienced before,” Dow said.
