After a year’s absence, the chance for WVU fans to meet members of the Mountaineer football team up close returns in 2021. West Virginia University has announced that the annual meet, greet and autograph session with WVU players and coaches, along with a chance to watch practice, will take place on Saturday, Aug. 7.
Coach Neal Brown, assistant coaches and West Virginia players will sign autographs and visit with fans from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on the West Concourse of Milan Puskar Stadium. Fans should enter through the stadium’s West Gate on the press box side, which will open at 8:50 a.m. Admission to the event is free of charge.
In an effort to accommodate as many requests as possible, each fan will be limited to one autograph item. Setting up posed pictures with players and coaches will not be allowed in order to keep lines moving and to give as many fans as possible the chance to get autographs.
Following the conclusion of the autograph session, fans can watch the Mountaineers practice inside Milan Puskar Stadium until 12:30 p.m.
Free parking will be available in the Silver Lot behind the Puskar Center, as well as lots A1, B1, E, F1, F2, F3 and F4, and the parking garage on Don Nehlen Drive.
Fans also will be able to pick up the 2021 football schedule poster during the autograph session.
