Find a watch party

The MSU Alumni Foundation has a list of championship watch parties across Montana and the nation on its events calendar.

The informal parties are free to attend and open to all Bobcat fans. An optional RSVP helps the event coordinators plan for the appropriate number of attendees, but it doesn’t guarantee a seat. The foundation suggests arriving early to the events.
