“Homecoming is an exciting time for the university and the Guelph community,” said U of G vice-president Daniel Atlin.

The football game is a 1 p.m. kickoff on Saturday with the Gryphons facing the Queen’s Gaels. Country band The Reklaws will play the halftime show.

The Glorious Sons show is at 8 p.m. in the Athletics Centre.

Atlin said that homecoming is a safe event as the university works closely with the Guelph police and city hall for a year prior to the weekend.

There will be increased police and bylaw officers on patrol in local neighbourhoods and Guelph Transit will provide free bus service along key routes during peak hours.
