First Saturday on The Flats Set for Saturday

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech athletics has finalized arrangements for Saturday’s 2022 First Saturday on The Flats, Tech football’s annual Fan Day event, which will be held from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the John and Mary Brock Indoor Football Facility.

First Saturday on The Flats will feature more than a dozen different interactive stations with activities for the whole family to participate in alongside Georgia Tech football student-athletes, spirit squad members and Buzz. Stations include:

  • autographs with head coach Geoff Collins;
  • “Combine Corner,” where fans can display their throwing and kicking skills, as well as test their mettle in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump and agility drills and show off their end zone dive and touchdown celebration, all directed and graded by Georgia Tech football student-athletes;
  • cheerleading activities with Tech’s spirit squads;
  • four different photo stations, where fans can take their picture with the Ramblin’ Wreck and the Yellow Jackets’ new adidas uniforms, as well as have their image captured by different ends of the technology spectrum – from Polaroid to 360 degrees;
  • interactive inflatables;
  • face painter;
  • balloon artists;
  • tailgate games.

Fans will receive a card when they arrive that will be marked with the completion of each station (see below for full stations map). At the end of the event, they can return their completed card to the marketing table to claim great prizes. The more activities each fan completes, the better the prizes they’ll take home!
