UT To Use Stadium Security At Spring Game

KNOXVILLE — Fans attending the Orange and White spring football game at UT April 13 will be asked to observe many of the same security measures that were used at Neyland Stadium last fall.

Large items and backpacks will not be allowed in the stadium and all parcels are subject to inspection, Philip Scheurer, University of Tennessee vice president for operations, said. Parents with infants will be permitted to bring diaper bags, he said.

All fans will enter through Gate 21 at the north end of the stadium. Gates will open at 12:30 p.m. and fans will be able to meet with players and coaches from 1-2 p.m. Gate 21 ticket booth will be open at noon.
Game time is 3 p.m.

“Keeping with current stadium policy, still photographic cameras will be permitted,” Scheurer said. “For the Orange and White game only, video cameras also will be permitted. Camera cases may be searched, and all fans are subject to screening before they enter the stadium.

“As was the case last fall, we ask fans to bring only small parcels, headset radios and camera bags. We really appreciate the cooperation and acceptance we received last fall.”
