Trashcan Football at Paternoville

If you have ever wanted to play football at Beaver Stadium, then the first annual Paternoville Trashcan Football Tournament is the perfect opportunity. The tournament may not actually be in the stadium, but it will be close enough that you can still tell your friends you played there.

Students can register for the tournament beginning on Monday at 9 p.m. at Paternoville. The fee to play will be $20 a team. The actual event will take place on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., where teams of two will battle in a single-elimination tournament. Each team will get Nike Paternoville Trashcan Tournament t-shirts the day of the tournament.

Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis, so make sure you register before all the spots are taken! Plus, the event is for a good cause, with all net proceeds going to Lift for Life, an annual weightlifting competition at Penn State that donates to the Kidney Cancer Association.

For more information about the tournament and other Paternoville events, visit the Paternoville Facebook page or the Paternoville site. Then, head over to Paternoville to establish your team of two as the best trashcan football team in all of Penn State!
