The Tempe Chamber of Commerce proudly hosted the 2022 ASU Sun Devil Football Kickoff Luncheon presented by San Tan Ford on August 26, 2022. The luncheon was held at the San Tan Ford Club perched high above the Sun Devil Stadium field.

Amidst a sea of maroon and gold, the event was packed full of fun and special guests as Sun Devil Football builds momentum for the start of the football season. Tim Healey, voice of the Devils, started it off with a spirited round of Q & A with coaches and players. Many of the Sun Devil football rising stars were in attendance, filling the room with contagious team spirit and projecting dreams of breakout campaigns in an exciting season to come.

“This event is important because it provides a chance for the business community to get behind the Sun Devil Football team. Their fans go far beyond the ASU students and reaches the entire Valley, “ said Colin Diaz, ACE, IOM, president and CEO of the Tempe Chamber. “It also is the perfect vehicle for the team itself to gain a little swagger and start building confidence because everyone in that room is cheering for their success.”

Fans also heard from key supporters of the Sun Devil Football team, including Ray Anderson, vice president for University Athletics at ASU, and Dr. Christine Wilkinson, president of ASU Alumni. Attendees met many of the 2022 team and enjoyed photo opportunities with players; Sparky, the Sun Devil Mascot; and ASU spirit squads.
