Titans Host Buccaneers in Preseason Home Opener Saturday at LP Field - Bring Shoes To Donate!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans return home this week to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first preseason game of 2009 at LP Field (capacity 69,143). Kickoff for the LP Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts Game is scheduled for 7 p.m. CST on Saturday, Aug. 15.

The game marks the 11th preseason opener at LP Field, which opened in 1999. The Titans are 13-7 all-time in the preseason at LP Field, including a 7-3 mark in home preseason openers. For the first time, the Titans and Louisiana Pacific Corporation (LP) are partnering with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in the preseason opener. LP, which upon becoming a naming rights sponsor in 2006 began the tradition of honoring a non-profit during the preseason, has donated 500 game tickets to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Representatives of LP and the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be recognized during the game with an honorary game ball.

Additionally, fans are encouraged to bring “gently-worn” shoes and donate them outside of the stadium gates in the Tennessee Titans Soles4Souls Shoe Drive.
