Greenville expects changes in the area with ECU’s game day approaching

Greenville, NC is buzzing with excitement as game day approaches. Local businesses like Pirates Deli are eagerly preparing for the influx of pirate energy that will consume the city.

According to Mohamed Khaled, an employee at Pirates Deli, game day is their favorite day. “We love the game days, it’s the best day we got!” he exclaimed.

While the atmosphere is electrifying, Khaled admitted that it can also get quite hectic. “It gets very hectic, and when moments like that happen, it’s game over for us. But pressure makes time and that’s what we like,” he explained.

Preparations for the game day crowd are extensive, with ECU police estimating around 30,000 attendees. As the game falls during rush hour, Greenville is anticipating heavy traffic between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Adding to the excitement, the game will feature a blackout theme. Captain Chris Sutton, from the ECU police, is urging motorists to exercise extra caution, especially after the game ends around 11:30 p.m. “When our patrons start to leave in all black when it’s all dark outside, then it is very important for the motorist to be very defensive in their driving to limit their distractions so that they can be aware of individuals that may be darting out in the roads to be able to cross the streets,” Captain Sutton advised.

To accommodate the festivities, 14th Street will be closed starting at 4 o’clock, which aligns with the commencement of tailgates. Drivers are advised to plan their routes accordingly.
