CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Due to the weather delay Wednesday night, Chanticleer supporters are now invited to meet the university’s baseball team at 11 p.m. Thursday and watch the Welcome Home Motorcade and Ceremony Friday afternoon.

“The Conway and Grand Strand communities are invited to join Coastal Carolina University to welcome home the CCU Chanticleers as they return from the College World Series in Omaha,” states a release from the university. The team is expected to arrive at the General Aviation gate of the Myrtle Beach International Airport, located at 1250 Airdrome Avenue in the Market Common area, at 11 p.m. Thursday. Fans are encouraged to welcome the team there.

The Welcome Home Motorcade and Ceremony is scheduled for Friday. The Chanticleer Motorcade will parade through Downtown Conway at about 1:30 p.m., the release states.

The team will continue on to CCU and arrive at the main entrance of the TD Sports Complex on West Chanticleer Drive at about 2 p.m.

“Fans will form a gauntlet to cheer on the team, starting at the Chauncey statue leading to the Springs Brooks Baseball Stadium,” the release states. “The official Welcome Home Ceremony will immediately follow at the stadium. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held at the HTC Student Recreation and Convocation Center.”
