Fan Appreciation Day Set for August 15

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State football fans can get their first look at the 2015 Wildcats on Saturday, August 15, as K-State hosts the annual Academy Sports + Outdoors Fan Appreciation Day at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

Fans are asked to park on the west side of Bill Snyder Family Stadium and enter through Gate B for the free event, which begins at 5 p.m. Seating will be open on the west side in Sections 1-9 and fans can watch the final hour of practice. Concessions will also be available on the west side of the stadium.

Following practice, College Football Hall of Fame head coach Bill Snyder and the 2015 team captains will address the crowd prior to a one-hour autograph session on the field with players and coaches. Those participating are asked to limit the number of autographed items to one per person and encouraged to provide their own item to be signed.

The West Stadium Center ticket office will be open during the event for fans wishing to purchase single-game tickets. K-State officials announced last week that all reserved seating for the first four home games is sold out as the Wildcats close in on a season sellout and run their consecutive sellout streak to 27 games.

Additionally, only scattered single seats remain for the Baylor game, general admission tickets are still available for the Iowa State game and a small amount of reserved seating groups are left for the regular-season finale against West Virginia.

Standing-room only tickets are still available for every home game in 2015 with the exception of the Baylor contest, while the best available reserved seating options can be found through Vivid Seats, the official ticket reseller of K-State Athletics. Fans can contact Vivid Seats at www.k-statesports.com/tickets or by calling 1-866-848-8499.

Fans who wish to purchase standing-room only tickets and the remaining available seats for the Baylor, Iowa State and West Virginia games and are unable to attend Fan Appreciation Day can do so by contacting the K-State Athletics Ticket Office at www.k-statesports.com/tickets or 1-800-221-CATS.

Although reserved seating is sold out for a majority of the 2015 home games, visiting teams will have opportunities to return unused tickets up to a month prior to their visit. Stay tuned to www.k-statesports.com for information regarding returned ticket availability. All returned tickets will be sold at the full public rate and season ticket wait list accounts will have first opportunity to purchase.
