Penn State Athletics Creates Virtual Valley Experience

Penn State Athletics doesn’t plan to allow fans into Beaver Stadium this fall other than student-athletes’ familes, but it still created a virtual experience for game days. Fans will get behind-the-scenes access all season long through Virtual Valley.

Fans can take part in the experience to have a “seat” in Beaver Stadium by buying a cardboard cutout, posting their photos on social media with the hashtag #PSUPride, and taking part in the Raise the Song campaign.

As part of the Raise the Song campaign, students are able to send in videos of themselves cheering on their favorite Nittany Lions. Fans are asked to submit their videos here, many of which will be used in-stadium during games. Other videos may be posted to Penn State Athletics’ social media accounts.

While there won’t be any tailgating allowed this fall, fans can also take part in the Virtual Tailgate of the Game Contest. Each game days, fans can share photos of their socially distanced or virtual tailgates with the hashtag #PSUTailagate. Fans showing the most spirit will be selected as Tailgate of the Game and will earn a prize from the Nittany Lion Club.

Other virtual initiatives include the Nittany Lion Club Tailgate Cookbook Recipe of the Week, Behind the Mic, and several others. Visit Penn State’s Virtual Valley Experience page for more information on how you can get involved in this virtual initiatives.
