Ole Miss announces cardboard cutout program for fans

With college football stadiums operating at 25% capacity due to an executive order from the governor, you can still be in the stands for every Ole Miss sporting event, including football, this fall…sort of. 

Ole Miss Athletics announced Friday that, for $55, fans can purchase a cutout to be placed inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, the Gillom Athletics Performance Center and the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium. 

Similar cutouts have been seen since the beginning of the Major League Baseball season.

You can secure your spot by going to  cutouts.olemissgameday.com. You’ll then upload a high-resolution photo of yourself, a spouse, child, and/or a pet. 

According to a news release, photos of fans will be required to feature Ole Miss attire. Additionally, commercial advertising, political logos/statements, offensive or negative comments on photos will not be approved.

The first 500 orders will be placed in “high-visible locations” behind the field goal posts inside the football stadium with the remaining cutouts being placed throughout the lower bowl.

In order to make sure cutouts are in the stands by game time, fans are asked to purchase and upload by the following deadlines:

  • Football – Friday, Sept. 18 by 5 p.m. CT
  • Soccer – Monday, Sept. 14 by 5 p.m. CT
  • Volleyball – Friday, Oct. 9 by 5 p.m. CT

Select fans who purchase cutouts will also have the chance to have their cutout signed by Lane Kiffin, Matt Mott and Kayla Banwarth at the conclusion of each sport’s home season. Fans will also be able to pick up their cutouts at the end of the fall season.
