Georgia reveals rules, restrictions for fan day

ATHENS — Georgia football will open the doors to its “House of Payne” for fans who want to spend a few moments with players and head coach Kirby Smart from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on Aug. 3. 

The University of Georgia announced this year’s Fan Day will take place in the William Porter Payne and Porter Otis Payne Indoor Athletic Facility and feature a free autograph session. 

The line will likely start to form long before doors open at 10 a.m. Entry to the building is off Smith Street. 

Georgia is limiting fans to two posters per person. The posters must be the 2019 Georgia football schedule poster, and those will be distributed to the fans as they enter the building. 

Smart and his players are not signing any other items. Smart is also not posing for any pictures for fans, nor will his players, according to the UGA release. 

Fans can, however, get their picture taken with UGA X at 11:30 a.m. in the Richard B. Taylor room of the Stegeman Coliseum Practice Annex. 

Special tickets will be required for that photo opportunity with Georgia’s famous and friendly bulldog. 

The first 150 fans in line at the Stegeman Coliseum ticket booths when they open at 8:30 a.m. will get the special ticket coupons needed to get their picture taken with UGA. 

Only those with a ticket are guaranteed a photo, and the UGA release says “to stand-by tickets will be issued.” 

Parking will be available in lots located behind Foley Field, along with he McPhaul Lot, the Carlton Street parking deck and South Campus parking deck.
