In order to help fill out stadiums in the COVID-19 era and to possibly regenerate some of that lost revenue, the Ole Miss Athletic Department announced on Friday they will be selling cardboard cutouts.
The cutouts are sold for $55 and are available for football, soccer, and volleyball.
The full press release can be found below.
OXFORD – With the recent announcements of attendance impacts for fall sports, Ole Miss Athletics is providing fans a chance to see themselves represented at Rebel home games this season with fan cutouts through the new Home Team initiative.
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. All proceeds will benefit the Ole Miss Athletics Scholarship fund to help athletes compete and succeed.
To be a part of history and secure one of these limited-edition cutouts, fans can purchase cutouts at cutouts.olemissgameday.com. They will then upload a high-resolution photo of themselves, a spouse, child, and/or a pet. Photos of fans will be required to feature Ole Miss attire and creativity is highly encouraged.
Commercial advertising, political logos/statements, offensive or negative comments on photos will not be approved. Ole Miss Athletics reserves the right to reject any inappropriate or non-compliant photo.
The first 500 orders will be placed in high-visible locations behind the field goal posts at The Vaught, and the remaining inventory will be placed throughout the lower bowl. Select cutouts will be visible on television broadcasts this season.
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
All submissions after the above deadlines will be in the stands for the next home game.
