Hey, fans of the Huskers, here’s everything you need to know for the 2021 Nebraska football fan day.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers are getting set to welcome Husker fans to the 2021 version of Nebraska football fan day. The Huskers had to take a year off because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Huskers’ fan festivities are back on the schedule for this year.

Of course, as everyone knows now, the 2020 season was a tumultuous one for the Nebraska football team. That’s largely due to the pandemic that sidelined the Nebraska football fan day, but it’s also because the Cornhuskers struggled last season.

The Huskers weren’t anywhere near as good as they’d hoped to be during the 2020 season, which leaves a ton of room for improvement for the 2021 Nebraska football team. The Cornhuskers will need to improve this season if Scott Frost is going to get some of the heat off his back from Husker football fans. 

And those same fans will be lining up to chat with Frost and the rest of his team on Thursday, July 29 starting at 5:30 p.m.

The 2021 Nebraska fan day is the perfect opportunity for Cornhusker fans to get out and greet members of their favorite football team. Show up, introduce your kids (or grandkids or great grandkids) to the players and coaches who will be leading the Huskers forward in 2021.

Get some autographs, shake some hands, get and out and show some support to your favorite team.

The event is set for July 29 and will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. It’ll take place at Memorial Stadium and the gates will open at 5:30. According to a guide published by the Nebraska Athletic Department, Nebraska football fans can enter through gate 3 and gate 24. They’ll be able to exit through gate 3, gate 11, or gate 24.

According to the Nebraska Athletic Department, Frost will only speak with kids during the event.

From the official Nebraska news release that was posted earlier today:

Coach Frost’s autograph line will be limited to young Husker fans entering 8th grade and younger.

Parents wishing to sign their children up for an opportunity to be part of Coach Frost’s line should sign their child up for that opportunity by Monday, July 26.  The sign-up form can be accessed on Huskers.com at www.huskers.com/fanday

The athletic department added that roughly 250 kids will be chosen at random to get the opportunity to get an autograph from the head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Remember, the event is scheduled for Thursday, July 29. For more information about the 2021 version of Nebraska football fan day, click here.
