The Auburn gameday experience will be altered this coming season, the University announced Monday evening.
Tiger fans will experience a multitude of changes in and around Jordan-Hare Stadium, most of which are expected to enhance the atmosphere of campus on Saturdays.
Inside Jordan-Hare stadium, concourse amenities have been expanded and additional tailgating items, such as grills and tents, will be subsequently added. The Tiger Transit system will also add routes, including pre-game to downtown Auburn and post-game to War Eagle Way.
To continue along Auburn’s path of top-of-the-line video entertainment, the jumbotron will feature a first down marker during plays, and 45 flat-screen televisions have been added to concourses.
The Athletic Department will honor the 125 years of women at Auburn University during homecoming weekend on Sept. 16, when the Tigers are set to take on the Mercer Bears. Following the homecoming game, fans will be allowed to roam Pat-Dye Field for a fixed period.
The student section will now feature a DJ. In addition, fans will be able to collect three souvenir cups and seven gameday programs. The programs can be opened to reveal a pull-out poster and, when combined at the end of the season, will form an image.
Tiger fans’ color palettes will be directed toward a theme on multiple gamedays. The season opener against Georgia Southern on Sept. 2 will be the "Orange-Out" game, Nov. 11 against Georgia will be the "True Blue" game and Sept. 30 against Mississippi State is set to be the annual "Stripe the Stadium" game.
The University will honor service men and women with the sixth-annual Military Appreciation Game on Oct. 7, when Auburn takes on the Ole Miss Rebels.
