Husker football fan day is 6 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 5 at Memorial Stadium. Admission is free.

The Husker football team will hold its annual Nebraska Football Fan Day, 6 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 5 at Memorial Stadium.

The annual event allows the best opportunity for fans to meet and greet the Husker football players, coaches and staff before the start of fall practice. Admission is free.

Fans can Memorial Stadium through Gates 3, 15 and 24. The majority of players and coaches will be seated on the field throughout the stadium, with true freshman located in the stands in West Stadium.

Defensive position groups will primarily be seated along the West sideline, offensive line and receivers on the East sideline and quarterbacks and running backs in the North end zone. Assistant coaches will be seated with their respective position groups. A more detailed map is available on

Nebraska fans are asked to respect players and coaches, as well as other fans by limiting their autograph requests to one item per player or coach. Any apparel items fans are wishing to have autographed should be in hand, rather than being worn. These policies will help accommodate as many fans as possible within the Fan Day time window.

Also as a reminder, autographs obtained for players and coaches are for personal use only. Any re-sale of an autographed item is prohibited and re-sale of an item with a student-athlete’s signature could jeopardize the player’s eligibility.

Autograph cards with a full 2015 roster, signed and unsigned Coach Mike Riley autograph cards, and other items will be available for fans at the gates.

Parking will be available in lots around Memorial Stadium. Free parking (available after 5 p.m.) will be available in the 14th and Avery parking garage, the Champions Club lot and Lot 5 northeast of Memorial Stadium.

Restrooms for fans will be available near Gates 2 and 24, as well as under the northeast corner of the stadium near Gate 15. Fans will not have access to the Osborne Athletic Complex. Drink stations will be available near the 50-yard line on the West sideline and individuals will also be moving around the field selling refreshments.
