I ‘Spartan’ SF T-Shirts are Back on Sale!

They’re back! Due to popular demand, we’re thrilled to offer another round of the Official San Francisco Spartans ‘I Spartan SF’ t-shirts from East Lansing’s own Underground Printing.

Sales end October 5th. Shirts will be shipped on October 16th so you can wear them when we pack The Brick Yard for the Michigan game on October 25th.

You can order them here.

The Forest Green shirts are offered in two athletic cut unisex styles: crew neck (size chart here) and v-neck (size chart here). Women should order one size *smaller* than they are used to – if you’re normally a small in women’s sizes, get an extra small in the unisex size.

All shirts are $29.95 each. Profits go to support our alumni club and the San Francisco Bay Area Endowment Fund. We are well on our way to our endowment goal and every contribution helps. Thank you for your support! If you’d like to donate directly to our fund, click here.

Bay Area Spartans Take on Wine Country!

We are pleased to bring to you an incredible chance to visit wine country with Spartan Alums. The day trip will include round-trip coach bus transportation between San Francisco and Sonoma, two wine tastings, snacks and wine on the bus. We have selected two wineries for the tastings: Sebastiani Vineyards and Chalk Hill in Sonoma. Both are beautiful vineyards with excellent wine. The cost for the event will include the tastings at each location. 7 pours are included in the tasting price at Sebastiani.

Transportation: Reservations for the 49-seat bus are available on a first-come, first-served basis and we expect the bus to fill up quickly! Unfortunately after the 49 seats are taken, we will be done taking any more requests.

Tasting will take approximately 1 hour, 10 minutes (maybe a little less). The bus will be leaving SF (near Caltrain) at 9am and return by 5pm.

Cost: $59.99
