August 5 is Oklahoma State’s annual fan appreciation day.
The event will take place from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in Gallagher Iba Arena, with the doors to the stadium opening at 1:30 p.m. Fans can enter the arena from any entrance as they would for a basketball game or wrestling match.
The concourse (the upper level) will be broken down into four zones, according to the OSU press release.
- Zone 1 – accessible from the northwest corner of the arena with the large statue of Pistol Pete – features the running backs, offensive line and safeties.
- Zone 2 – accessible from the northeast entrance to the arena – features Mike Gundy, the quarterbacks and the Cowgirl soccer team.
- Zone 3 – accessible from the southeast entrance to the arena – features the cornerbacks, linebackers and defensive line.
- Zone 4 – accessible from the southwest corner of the arena – features the wide receivers, Cowboy Backs and specialists.
Fans can pick up football and soccer posters and schedule cards inside the arena for free and can get autographs from the Cowboy football and soccer teams from 2:30-4:30 p.m. on the concourse level of the arena. Each fan can get one autograph from each player or coach.
No photos with the players or coaches will be allowed, in the interest of keeping lines moving.
Parking is available all over campus, but the best parking will be in the south lot of Boone Pickens Stadium.
What better to hold you over until the fall sports seasons kick off than this?
