Fred W. Smith Football Center Tours???
« on: August 18, 2013, 12:25:18 am »

On game day I presume the new football center will be open for fans to visit.  Is that correct? Will there be tours available or will fans just be allowed to wander around and look on their own?

What has happened to the displays in the northern end of the stadium?  Have they been moved to the new center, or will this area also be something I can show off to out-of-state visitors on game day?

TIA,

SK

They haven't announced any tours. Still finishing the inside of the facility.

According to AD Long, they haven't decided on how to handle any tours. Really, they don't need the traffic of people running through there while preparing to play foitball. I'm assumimg when the foyer and entrance are finished they will let fans in there. I don't ever see a full blown tour, just places you don't want to run people through.

Probably equal to the ones using the potted plants as a urinal.

Perhaps they should just wait until next year's spring game, or they could be like JerryWorld and open it during specific weeks of the year for people to tour.  Highly recommend that, btw, if anyone is ever in Dallas.  It was $20, but you get to walk on the field and go into the locker room area and the VIP area.  Self-guided, so you can take as long as you want and they let you take still photos, but it's not available during the season.

They sure didn't mind tours of the old dump when they needed money for upgrades.

Well, hang around another 25/30 years and they'll give you a tour of this one. I imagine if you donated to this one you can get a tour.
