This year’s Fan Day will be held on Saturday August 16 in Cardinal Arena from 3-5 p.m. Apparently, fans have to RSVP to even be able to attend the event. Along with the football team, Fan Day will also feature the men’s soccer, volleyball, and field hockey programs.
Usually for football, Fan Day has been held in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, with tables set up along the concourse for fans to get autographs from players and coaches. This is a little different. I envision a lot of fans getting there who did not RSVP that will be disappointed. Maybe we can reach a few of those people with this post.
The annually free event gives fans a unique opportunity to interact with their favorite players and coaches from the football program and other fall sports. Autograph cards will be distributed to fans in attendance, and there will continue to be a one item per person limit for autographing.
In addition to the UofL players and head coaches signing autographs, offensive tackle Jamon Brown, wide receiver DeVante Parker, cornerback Charles Gaines, and defensive end/linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin, Ladybirds, and Louie the Mascot will solely take pictures with fans in a designated location in Cardinal Arena. Full amount of autographs and photos are not guaranteed for all attendees, pending event size.
