It's being called the Mountaineer Massacre this Saturday in Greenville as the East Carolina Pirates take the field for the first game of season against Appalachian State.
The excitement continues to build around Greenville, as pirate faithful gear up with the newest purple and gold apparel at U.B.E.store.
Besides the excitement of the game, merchants are trilled to see the return of business.
Which can be a win-win for fans of all ages planning to cheer on the pirates Saturday.
Merchants are also ready for the increase in business, as chamber officials expect the city could see three million dollars in sales this weekend.
