IOWA CITY — Coach Kirk Ferentz’s Iowa Hawkeye football team will put on its initial public display at the annual “Iowa Football Kid’s Day at Kinnick” on Saturday, Aug. 18. Gates to the historic stadium will open at 10 a.m.

The Hawkeyes will practice approximately two hours from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by a 30-minute autograph session for fans young and old.

Only Gates A, B and E will be open for entrance and normal stadium search procedures will be in place. Several Hawkeye promotional items, including 2007 football posters, schedule cards and magnets, and schedule cards for the volleyball, field hockey and soccer teams will be given away while supplies last. Roster cards for the football practice session will be given away free of charge at all three entrances.

Concession stands will be open and selling items at a reduced cost.

“The Kid’s Day event is a great opportunity for us to invite friends and fans of the Iowa football program to Kinnick Stadium,” said Toby Trail, UI’s director of marketing. “The best part for the fans is that it’s free.”

The first game for Iowa is Saturday, Sept. 1, against Northern Illinois at Soldier Field in Chicago.
