As one of the top teams in the country, it is highly likely that Florida State will host the opening rounds of the tournament for the first time in school history and we want you to join in on the celebration!

For only $5.00 per person, fans can enjoy food and drinks with the Seminoles at the Varsity Club as the selection show begins at 8:30 p.m. on ESPNEWS. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. for drinks and appetizers. The players and coaches will be available for photos, autographs and much more!

For more information, or to RSVP, contact Tamara Metcalfe via email at tmetcalf@mailer.fsu.edu ASAP.

Following the announcement, the team, staff, administrators and fans will gather at the “Unconquered” statue which sits on Williams Plaza at Langford Green just south of Bobby Bowden Field at Doak S. Campbell Stadium for the lighting of the spear.

FSU adopted a policy two months ago that allows flames to lap more frequently from the spear of the “Unconquered” statue recognizing events of great significance and accomplishment on the FSU campus.




Unconquered, a 31-foot high sculpture that depicts a spear-brandishing Seminole astride a rearing horse, was designed by Fritz White to capture the indomitable spirit of the Seminole people and those who have adopted that spirit as a symbol for their university. Since its dedication in 2003, the spear has been set ablaze at sunset before FSU home football games only and it burns until sunrise the morning after the game.

The new policy means the spear will be lit when FSU wins an Atlantic Coast Conference team championship in any sport, or an NCAA individual championship in any sport. In addition, the spear would be lit the night an FSU team is selected for NCAA Championship competition and will burn for 24 hours.
