For only $40, you can be seen at home games on the Hilltop

Like many other sports programs across the globe during the pandemic, the Georgetown Hoyas are offering fans the ability to have a photo cutout at homes games in McDonough Arena. For only $40 your image can be in place for (at least) games in

It appears that Georgetown is willing to move the cutouts in McDonough to accommodate actual fans should they be permitted in January, February, or March.

Because the promotion is for Men’s and Women’s games at McDonough, moving all the fan cutouts to Capital One Arena if Men’s games were to be played there with fans, seems unlikely—despite the clear amount of superfluous space.

Also, a raffle for Patrick Ewing’s autograph comes in the form of 5 lucky selections. Sadly, cutouts won’t be sent to fans at the end of the season unless you’re one of the lucky five.

All in all, even with the air of disappointment in the lack of “practice” in the “open practice,” this seems like a solid promotion, following every other school doing it.
