Fan Day Festivities Set for Saturday

The annual Nebraska Football Fan Day will be held this Saturday morning, Aug. 19, at Memorial Stadium, giving Husker fans the chance to meet their favorite Husker players and coaches. Festivities will be held following the third annual Coach Callahan Fun Run/Walk.

This year's Fan Day will take place from 10-11:30 a.m. on the field at Memorial Stadium. Fans can utilize Gates 3 and 24 to enter the stadium and follow designated lines to reach coaches and players, who will be seated by position groupings.

The players and coaches will leave their seats at 11:30 a.m. to continue their schedules for the remainder of the day. Fans are asked to respect the time of players, coaches and other Husker fans and to limit their autograph requests to one item per coach or player.

Husker merchandise will be available throughout the day at the Huskers Authentic Team Store in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage. Huskers Authentic will open at 6 a.m. on Saturday to accommodate fans who arrive early. Huskers Authentic will also have two satellite locations, one near Gate 24 and one near Gate 2.

In addition to all the merchandise normally available at Huskers Authentic, fans will also have the first opportunity to purchase the 2006 football team posters, as well as the 2006 Nebraska Football Media and Recruiting Guide.

Vendors will be selling Pepsi products and water throughout the stadium on Saturday. Fans will be restricted to the field level. The new seating in the North Stadium and the Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex will not be available to the public as the area is still be a construction zone. Details of public tours of the new facilities will be announced soon.
