JOHNSON CITY (Sept. 27, 2012) – The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Thursday the Bucs have teamed up with TextCaster to launch a new text messaging communications service to its fans called “Buc Updates” for the 2012-13 season.

The “Buc Updates” brand will consist of score alerts, while also allowing fans the opportunity to stay up-to-date with Buccaneer athletic news free of charge. In addition, weather delays will be sent out via the TextCaster service and fans can become eligible to win prizes during special in-game promotions.

Fans can elect to opt in or out at any time, and have the option to receive updates on every Buccaneer athletic team or selected sports by clicking in the individual sport boxes on the sign up page.
