One of the most popular traditions surrounding the OU football program, Meet the Sooners Day, will be held will be held on Saturday, Aug. 4, at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. This annual, free event kicks off preseason practice and gives University of Oklahoma fans a unique opportunity to interact with their favorite players and coaches.
This year's event falls on a Saturday for a second consecutive year, a decision that was influenced by summer school dates. While OU appreciates the tremendous support offered by Sooners fans of all ages, in order to accommodate as many young fans as possible, Meet the Sooners Day will again be offered to children ages 14 and younger. Each child may be accompanied by a maximum of one adult, but adults will not be permitted to submit items for autographs.
Each child may bring ONE item to be signed – no exceptions.
A line for the general public will form at Gate 5 beginning at 7 a.m. The line will flow under the Asp Avenue Parking Facility on the west side of the stadium.
Sooner Kids Club members can begin entering the stadium at 7 a.m. through Gate 7. That group is required to check in at the Sooner Kids Club table to receive a membership package. They will then move to the lines under the stadium.
As has been the case for several years, the Sooner Kids Club autograph session will begin 30 minutes prior to the general public. The Kids Club autograph session will begin at 10 a.m., while general patrons will be admitted at 10:30 a.m. The session will conclude at noon.
Public restrooms will be available for fans in attendance, but please note that concessions stands will NOT be open. Patrons will be permitted to bring their own water and water also will be on sale inside and outside the stadium during the event.
Further information on parking and other details will be made available once they are finalized.
