The Arizona football program invites season ticket holders, Wildcat Club members, fans, families and friends to Fan Appreciation Day to conclude the Spring Showcase Series presented by OrthoPros. This interactive event is free to attend and will be held from 12-1:30 p.m. at Arizona Stadium.
Head Coach Rich Rodriguez will open the festivities by introducing the 2017 Wildcats on the field at noon. Thereafter, on-field activities with players, Lowell-Stevens Football Facility tours, autographs and photo opportunities will take place through 1:30 p.m.
Arizona players will host fans at six different stations to demonstrate football drills and skills for fans, especially kids. There will be three offensive and three defensive stations spread out across the field.
After Coach Rodriguez's introduction, fans will have the opportunity to tour areas of the Lowell-Stevens Football Facility, including the Wildcats' locker room and weight room.
Fan Appreciation Day marks the first opportunity for fans to pick up their 2017 Arizona football schedule poster. There will not be a formal autograph session set up, but all players and coaches will have pens and markers on hand to sign autographs throughout the 90-minute event. In addition, fans can take their photos with the Territorial Cup and actual Arizona football equipment.
An on-field host will serve as emcee for a live video board show inside the stadium. The host will roam around the field to interview coaches, players and fans from the various events taking place.
Arizona Stadium Gate 2 will open to fans beginning at 11 a.m. Food trucks will be on site for fans looking to purchase lunch or refreshments.
Ticket office staff will be on hand to take new season ticket orders as well as handle season ticket renewals for those who not already done so. The season ticket and Wildcat Club renewal deadline of May 1 is quickly approaching.
