As excitement builds toward next week’s season-opener, fans can meet the 2014 Mississippi State football team at the annual Fan Day this Sunday, Aug. 24 from 4:30-7 p.m. in the newly renovated and expanded Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field.
The new northwest gates of the stadium open at 4:30 p.m. Sunday. In addition to getting autographs and photos from the student-athletes and coaches, fans can get a first look at the new north end zone concourse. To help ensure everyone in attendance has a chance to meet all the players and head coach Dan Mullen, student-athletes may only sign posters while Coach Mullen will autograph one item per person.
The MSU volleyball and soccer teams will also be on hand for autographs and pictures as will the MSU Spirit Squads, Bully, Bully XX and the Golden Egg trophy.
Posters and schedule cards from MSU’s 2014 fall sports be available for free to fans. Other attractions include music, kids’ face painting, a Kids’ Zone with inflatable games. Free refreshments will be available at the northwest concession stand.
In addition to this year's festivities, fans who have not purchased their 2014 season tickets can purchase them at Fan Day. Ticket office and Bulldog Club representatives will be on hand to assist fans and take orders.
