The University of Tennessee Athletics Department announced Tuesday times and additional details for Fan Day, set for August 5 at Neyland Stadium.
Head Coach Jeremy Pruitt said earlier this year the autograph session normally held the day of the Orange and White Game would be moved to a date in early August during fall camp. The university said at the time it would give fans the chance to watch the Vols practice inside Neyland Stadium.

Admission and parking for the event will be free. Gate 21 opens to fans at 1:30 p.m. The autograph session on the field begins as soon as practice is over, which will be approximately 4:30 p.m. Stations will be designated by position group on each sideline and Pruitt will have his own table.
Fans interested in attending the autograph session will need to obtain a wristband as they enter Gate 21. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last. Due to time constraints, a wristband does not guarantee obtaining an autograph.
Concession stands on the lower level will be open, as will the Official Athletic Team Store at Gate 20. Ticket sales representatives will be available for fans interested in purchasing season tickets or mini-plans.
A portion of Volunteer Boulevard between Cumberland Avenue and Peyton Manning Pass will be closed for streetscape improvements. The university’s clear bag policy will be in effect.
The university says if inclement weather forces practice indoors, the autograph session will be canceled.
The first game of the season will be on September 1 against West Virginia at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. It will be the first time the Vols and Mountaineers face off in school history.
