K-State Reports to Fall Camp

MANHATTAN, Kan. – With Kansas State’s nationally-televised season opener at Stanford just under a month away, Wildcat football players reported to the Vanier Family Football Complex on Wednesday morning for the beginning of fall camp.

K-State will conduct 20 practices over the next 17 days before getting in its regular in-season routine when classes begin on Monday, August 22. The next week, the Wildcats will prepare for the season opener against the Cardinal on Friday, September 2, at Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, California. The game is set for an 8 p.m. (CT) and will be televised nationally by FS1.

Fans can get their first look at the 2016 Wildcats on Saturday, August 13, as K-State hosts its annual Fan Appreciation Day. Details for the event will be announced later this week.

K-State will hold its annual Media Day on Saturday beginning with a press conference featuring Hall of Fame head coach Bill Snyder at 4 p.m. To watch Snyder’s press conference on Saturday and other premium content – including K-State’s September 24 game against Missouri State – fans can subscribe to K-StateHD.TV at www.k-statesports.com.

Excitement is building for the 2016 K-State Football season, Snyder’s 25th year at the helm of the Wildcats, as a limited number of single-game tickets remain for K-State’s six home games. Only 500 adjoining tickets remain for the Eighth Annual K-State Family Reunion home opener against FAU on September 17, and less than 40 remain for the homecoming matchup against Texas on October 22, as K-State looks to extend its sellout streak to 33-straight games.

To order tickets, fans can contact the K-State Athletics Ticket office online at www.k-statesports.com/tickets, by phone at 1-800-221-CATS or at the main ticket office inside Bramlage Coliseum.

A bye week follows the game at Stanford as Bill Snyder Family Stadium will host the Wildcat Kickoff music festival featuring Zac Brown Band and Train on Saturday, September 10. The festival also includes top acts Phillip Phillips, David Ray and Adley Stump. Tickets can be purchased at www.wildcatkickoff.com.

The 2016 football season is the first for the new clear bag policy at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. To provide a safer environment for the public and significantly expedite guest entry into our venues, K-State Athletics is implementing a new bag policy in 2016-17 for all ticketed K-State events that limits the size and type of bags that may be brought into our venues.
