Mayor Moncrief Says Get Into the Stadium

With historic TCU football game on deck, Mayor Mike Moncrief asks citizens to pack stadium, start new tradition

Fort Worth, TX

On Saturday, Amon Carter Stadium will host the final regular-season football game for the undefeated TCU Horned Frogs, and Mayor Mike Moncrief wants to make sure the players take the field to a rowdy packed house once again. With a win against New Mexico on Saturday, the Frogs would end the season 12-0 for the first time in team history.

“I’m talking about getting people in seats to support our home team in its march to a perfect season,” Moncrief said. “Many of the TCU students will be away for the Thanksgiving break, so it’s up to us—the citizens of Fort Worth—to make sure that stadium is filled with a sea of purple clad fans. Today, I call on all who are able to reserve your tickets to watch history in the making! Let’s fill that stadium! Let’s make some noise! Amon Carter Stadium is our House! Let’s transform it into a ‘Purple Monster’ that visiting teams fear and dread!

“And, if you can’t make it to the game, show your support at home, in your yard, at your workplace or on your car or truck,” Moncrief continued. “From Westover Hills to Eastern Hills, from Northside to Southside— let’s paint this city purple!”

In a show of support for TCU Football, Moncrief declared the Friday prior to the Horned Frogs game against Utah as “Go Purple Day” in Fort Worth. The declaration was embraced by individuals and businesses alike; and with the city draped in purple, the Frogs went on to defeat the Utes 55 to 28.

“It was phenomenal to see citizens—young and old alike—proudly donning their purple. Everyone wanted to be a part of it! And the support from the business community was something to behold. The downtown skyline bathed in purple was breathtaking,” Moncrief said. “Our city came together and the spirit was electric. The energy level at the sold out stadium was off the charts!

“We can do that again, Fort Worth. This Friday, whether you’re working, shopping or just taking it easy—whatever the case, wear your purple! Let’s show these talented athletes—and especially those seniors who will be playing in their final home game—how proud we are of their historic run!”

Because of the success of “Go Purple Day,” Moncrief proposes making it an annual tradition.

“We heard from so many people and took countless phone calls and e-mails from citizens and fans who enjoyed supporting our home football team. Everyone had a great time. The seed has been planted to make ‘Go Purple Day’ a new Fort Worth annual tradition,” he said. “Beginning next fall, the city workforce will be encouraged to go casual and wear purple on the Friday before each TCU Football home game. I hope all citizens and local employers will join us. We may be one of the largest cities in the nation, but we still have that small town spirit. ‘Go Purple Day’ is another perfect example of the community pride that makes Fort Worth a world-renowned city!”
