The Tennessee Titans have announced the schedule for Titans Caravan XII, the first of many events in a year-long celebration of the organization’s 50th season in professional football. This year’s Caravan begins Monday, April 13 and will make a total of 44 stops over a span of nine days.

One of the first stops this year will take place in Roane County as the caravan will be stopping at the Roane State Community College Expo Center on Monday, April 13 at 3:45 p.m. 

 “Titans Caravan is a special way our organization personalizes our connection to fans across all of Tennessee and the Mid-South. It offers players and staff the opportunity to meet people individually and demonstrate our appreciation face-to-face,” said Titans Owner and Founder K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. “The celebration of our 50th Anniversary underscores the importance of our direct link to fans; and in this special year, Titans Caravan continues its unique tradition of building memories, creating lasting bonds with fans, and offering our thanks for their support. At a time when professional sports can sometimes seem too removed and too distant, Titans Caravan is a one-of-a-kind experience that puts fans in close contact with our players.”        

Fans in Roane County will be in for a treat as one of Tennessee's best players, Kyle Vanden Bosch, will be at Roane State to sign autographs and take pictures with the fans.

Titans Caravan XII will end with a special visit on Thursday, April 23 with soldiers and family members of the 101st Airborne Division and the 160th SOAR(A) of the US Army at Fort Campbell, Ky. Multiple players, cheerleaders, T-Rac and staff will be part of the day, as they take the opportunity to thank our troops and their families for the great sacrifice that they make for all of us.

Over the last 11 years, Titans Caravan has made nearly 600 stops, traveled approximately 50,000 miles, visited over 200 schools and shaken hands with over 100,000 fans. The number of autographs signed and pictures taken is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands.

 Titans Caravan began in 1998 as a small effort to spread goodwill through the region. The current Caravan includes six full-time staffers that travel with Titans players, broadcasters and T-Rac throughout the Mid-South on a specially-decorated motor coach from Premiere Transportation.

 “We’re excited to take Titans Caravan XII to our fans,” said Titans Senior Executive Vice President Steve Underwood. “Mr. Adams has made a strong commitment to this effort, and we all look forward to making the 50th season of the organization one of our most special.”
