Auburn fan day scheduled for Aug. 10

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn will hold its annual fan day on Aug. 10 in the Auburn Arena, according to a release sent out by the school on Tuesday.

The event will run from 4:30-6:30 p.m. ET. Admission is free, and doors will open at 4 p.m. ET to allow fans to begin getting in line for autographs. The autograph session will end at 6:30 p.m.

Auburn football coach Gus Malzahn and players will be available to sign autographs. Players will be seated at tables with their names clearly marked. Others on hand to sign autographs are Auburn's cheerleading squad, the dance team (Tiger Paws) as well as the soccer and volleyball team. Aubie will not sign autographs; photos are allowed to be taken, however.

Posters and schedule cards for the upcoming season will be provided at no charge.

Each fan is permitted to bring only one item to be signed. There is no restriction on the items as long as it can be carried by one person without holding up the line and it does not pose a safety hazard.

The autograph procedure for fan day, provided by Auburn's media relations department, is outlined below.

To access the 2014 Auburn football seniors, fans will need to enter the Auburn Arena from the south side through the doors leading in to the practice court facility.

To access the remaining football players, cheerleaders, Tiger Paws, Aubie and the soccer and volleyball teams, fans will need to enter the main arena entrance, located on the north side of the arena.

The remaining members of the football team will be located at two positions inside the arena. Members of the offense and special teams will be positioned on the main arena floor while the defense will be located on the scholarship terrace on the main concourse level.

Fans interested in obtaining Coach Malzahn's autograph will be asked to enter the arena through the Scholarship Entry on the southeast corner. There will not be access to Coach Malzahn’s line from inside the arena. One item, per person. The item must be in hand as nothing will be signed on individuals (i.e. jerseys or tee shirts). Pictures will not be available with Coach Malzahn on Fan Day due to time constraints.

The cheerleaders, Tiger Paws, soccer, volleyball and Aubie will be located in the Kids Zone section on the main concourse.
