AUBURN — Approximately 9,000 fans passed through the doors of Auburn Arena Sunday afternoon for the annual Auburn Fan Day, presented by Golden Flake. Players and coaches from several of the Tigers’ fall varsity teams, along with Aubie, the cheerleaders and Tiger Paws, met with fans and signed autographs during the two-hour session.
“When you pull up to the front and you see all these people standing in line, waiting to get autographs and socialize with our team, it’s humbling,” Auburn head coach Gene Chizik said. “It makes you understand what a great responsibility we have.
“Our fans are the greatest fans. When we see people taking their time to do that, it means a lot to us. There’s a sense of excitement building. Our players can get a sense that game day is getting close. This time of the year for Auburn fans, it’s football season.”
Sunday evening, the Tigers went through a 90-minute practice.
Auburn has announced two different three-game football mini-packs. The mini-packs, as well as the season tickets, are currently the only opportunities to get tickets for the LSU, Arkansas and Texas A&M contests.
The Blue Pack includes tickets for the home opener vs. Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 15, No. 1-ranked LSU on Sept. 22 and 10th-ranked Arkansas on Oct. 6 for just $205. With the Orange Pack, fans get tickets for Texas A&M on Oct. 27, New Mexico State on Nov. 3 and Alabama A&M on Nov. 17 for $160.
All three-game mini-pack seats are located in the upper level of Jordan-Hare Stadium. Season tickets and six-game mini-season tickets are still available in lower and upper level seats.
The Tigers open the season Saturday, September 1, facing Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome.
