The SeaWolves are pleased to introduce Fauxback Friday, a season-long promotion in which the club will wear 1970s inspired jerseys. Additionally, scoreboard graphics and in-game promotions will feature a throwback flavor during Friday home games.

The SeaWolves will celebrate their first Fauxback Friday on Friday, April 7 with a special '70s Night. For the April 7 game only, select drink prices will be rolled back to the '70s including 75-cent specials on Budweiser, Bud Light and Pepsi fountain drinks at UPMC Park concession stands.

On Friday, August 11, the first 1,000 fans ages 15 and older will receive a Fauxback Friday replica jersey. The team will also sell merchandise featuring fauxback branding throughout the season.
