As the Manning Center opens, the Rebel soccer, volleyball, rifle and spirit squads will be greeting fans and signing autographs. Chick-fil-A will be providing concessions, and the Rebel Shop will be selling apparel, media guides and other merchandise.

The Ole Miss Athletics Ticket Office will be selling single-game tickets to the UT Martin, Fresno State, Vanderbilt and New Mexico State games, as well as Rebel 4-Pack and Rebel Pick 3-Pack options. A one-day $10 discount will be offered for tickets to the Sept. 5 season opener vs. UT Martin if they are purchased at Meet the Rebels Day.

Football coaches and players will be signing autographs and visiting with fans from 1 until 3 p.m., when the event comes to a close. In order to quicken the lines and accommodate as many people as possible, fans are limited to one autograph item per individual player or coach, and photos or videos with football coaches and players will not be permitted.

New team posters will be handed out to fans, and a kids zone will be set up with inflatables and other games.

SuperTalk Mississippi, which will air locally on 93.7 and 105.5 FM, will broadcast live from the stage beginning at noon with an on-air team led by the “Voice of the Rebels” David Kellum.
Several Ole Miss coaches and administrators will be interviewed, including head football coach Hugh Freeze and athletics director Ross Bjork.
