While some may bemoan the millennial generation, the Georgetown men’s soccer team has plans to celebrate it on Sept. 4 when the Hoyas host UCLA on “Millennial Day” at Shaw Field.

“At #MillennialDay, you can expect only the most #awesome giveaways (because millennials expect everything to be free) and the most hella cool activities,” the team said in a press release Monday. “So that everyone feels welcome at Shaw Field, a #dabbing safe space will be roped off, as well as a halftime naptime break if you ~can’t even~ stay awake for the whole game.”

In addition, the first 500 fans to the 12 p.m. game will receive participation trophies “because all #millennials are #special,” and team mascot Jack the Bulldog will be available “to take some #Kardashianworthy pregame selfies.”

For fans attached to their electronic devices, the Hoyas will also offer a “#MillennialCommunicationSection,” in which attendees can only communicate using their smartphones. Not only that, but according to the release, “tickets will be FREE for attendees who have held at least three jobs in the last three years, and have these jobs listed on their LinkedIn profiles.”

The Hoyas are coming off a disappointing 6-9-2 campaign in 2016, but the team promises Millennial Day will be the “most lit game of the regular season.”
