The University of Georgia will hold its annual Fan Picture Day on August 21 in Sanford Stadium and will feature Bulldog football coaches, players and interim mascot, “Russ.”
Due to the construction on the north side of Sanford Stadium, Picture Day will be held in the Gate 6 and 7 plazas and the club level located between Gates 6 and 7 all on the south side of the stadium. University of Georgia Athletic Association officials request fans to be patient and prepared for longer lines and tighter surroundings due to the construction.
Gates will open at 1 p.m. to give fans ample time to get into position to meet players and coaches. The Georgia football players and coaches will be on hand for photographs and autographs from 3-5 p.m. Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers will be set up in Gate 6. Offensive linemen and defensive linemen will be set up in the club level between Gates 6 and 7. Defensive backs, linebackers and special teams will be set up in Gate 7.
Fans are reminded that only two items are allowed per person, and event staff will be in place to enforce the limitations prior to entering autograph lines. Starting at 8 a.m., 150 tickets each for “Russ” and Coach Mark Richt will be distributed from the East Campus Ticket Windows. Fans should be aware that there are two different lines for each ticket and should make plan accordingly if they want to have photos made with both.
In the press box, “Russ” will be available for photos from 1-3 p.m. and Coach Richt will be signing autographs and taking pictures from 3-5 p.m. The fans with tickets will be directed to access the press box through Gate 8 or at the barricade off the ramp from the Gate 6/7 area. Fans must show tickets to access these areas, and no stand-by tickets will be distributed.
Families traveling with children and strollers will need to make plans to park strollers in the designated parking area prior to entering the press box. No strollers and food or drink will be allowed inside the press box. Fans with tickets for “Russ” must be in line by 1:30 p.m. while fans with tickets for Coach Richt must be in line by 3:30 p.m.
Parking is available to the general public in the following campus lots: any lots along East Campus Road, Journalism-Psychology Building, Clarke Howell Hall, Legion Field and Tate Center lots. Handicapped parking will be available in the Tate Center lots.
