Review 1 for East Carolina Pirates Football
Location:Greenville, North Carolina
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium... Where Purple Reigns
Date:October 14, 2014
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium is a historical stadium, as it is the location of the final game of the 1970 Marshall Football Team before its ill-fated plane crash that killed the entire team and many members of the coaching staff and several athletic boosters.
The East Carolina Pirates are the pride and joy of Greenville, North Carolina. Now playing in the American Athletic Conference (AAC), ECU is school that is extremely passionate for one thing: football. Every game at Dowdy is a treat with quality football, a wonderful marching band, and a great football atmosphere. You won't be disappointed!
