Hello Spartans!

Just in time for college football season, the SF Bay Area Spartans are announcing TWO new official gamewatch locations!

Come join us in San Francisco at Green’s Sports Bar in Russian Hill, and for our East Bay Spartans, hang out with us at Athletic Club Oakland by the 19th St BART Station!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all there! Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and become a member of the Facebook group to get all game time updates!


September 8th: Tigers at A’s

Hello friends!

Let’s celebrate the start of The Bay’s warm season with a baseball game! Come join the SF Bay Area Spartans & the University of Michigan SF Alumni Club for camaraderie, good food, and the 7th inning stretch!

The tailgate starts at 11am, while the game begins at 1pm. Don’t forget to bring your increasingly desperate hopes for a Tigers win!

Tickets are available here!

Join Us for Happy Hour & Board Meeting!

Are you interested in getting more involved with your SF Bay Area Spartans Alumni Club? Here’s a great opportunity!  This Monday night we are hosting an informal happy hour, followed by an open board meeting where we will be glad to consider you for one of our available board positions.  So come on by, have a drink and meet some other alumni including our current board members!

If a more formal board seat is not right for you at this time, we also have several committees that could use your help. Consider pitching in to help with Game Watches, Detroit Sports Events, Community Service Events, Networking Nights or our Endowed Scholarship Fundraising. We can always use extra hands.

When:  Monday, May 13, 6pm Happy Hour, 7pm Board Meeting
Where: The Brew Coop, 819 Valencia St, SF (Close to 16th St BART)

As always, GO GREEN!
