MANHATTAN, Kan. – K-State fans will have their first opportunity to see the 2012 football team on Saturday, August 18, during the K-State Football Kickoff at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

The public is asked to park on the west side of Bill Snyder Family Stadium and enter through Gates C and D for the event, which begins at 5 p.m. The ticket window on the west side of the stadium will be open for fans who wish to purchase season and single-game tickets. Additionally, concessions will be available on the west side for drinks and snacks.

Beginning at 5 p.m., fans can watch the final hour of practice from seats in Sections 1-9 before head coach Bill Snyder and team captains address the crowd. Fans will then be able to participate in a one-hour autograph session on the field with all players and coaches. Those participating are asked to limit the number of autographed items to one per person and are encouraged to provide their own item to be signed.

K-State opens the 2012 season at 6 p.m., September 1 against Missouri State. A very limited number of seats remain for the Missouri State, North Texas, KU, Oklahoma State and Texas games, while great seats are still available for the highly-anticipated matchup with Miami on September 8 and the October 27 Homecoming game with Texas Tech.
