The University of Nebraska–Lincoln's annual Nebraska Football Fan Day is 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 3 at Memorial Stadium.

Fan Day is the best opportunity for Husker Nation to meet and greet Nebraska football players, coaches and staff before preseason practice begins Aug. 4.

Fans can enter Memorial Stadium from four gates, including Gates 3 (southwest), 11 (northwest), 14 (northeast) and 24 (southeast). The majority of players and coaches will be seated at locations on the field, with true freshmen in the West Stadium stands.

Defensive position groups will primarily be seated along the west sideline; receivers, offensive line and specialists will be on the east sideline; and quarterbacks and running backs in the north end zone. Assistant coaches will be seated with their respective position groups.

During Fan Day, Nebraska will honor Sam Foltz with a short moment of silence and video tribute.

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.

Also, 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 2016 roster, unsigned Coach Mike Riley autograph cards and other items will be available for fans at the gates.

Parking will be available in lots on campus around Memorial Stadium. Fans can park for free in the Champion’s Club lot, 14th and Avery parking garage and Lot 5 northeast of Memorial Stadium. Fans will have access to restrooms on the ground level, near Gates 2, 15 and 24. Fans will not have access to the Osborne Athletic Complex. Water, Pepsi products and Gatorade will be available for sale.

Other Husker items, including 2016 team posters and media guides will be available at Husker Authentic locations, including at Pinnacle Bank Arena and satellite shops inside Memorial Stadium and on Stadium Drive.

UNL's athletic ticket office, which is in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage, will be open until 8 p.m. for fans interested in learning more about season ticket purchases. Season tickets for the 2016 football season are sold out, however single-game tickets are available. For more details, click here.
