Beginning at 11 a.m., Art Rooney Avenue will host an array of kid-friendly activities, including an inflatable bounce house, various interactive games and Pitt-themed airbrush tattoos.

All fans will enter Heinz Field through Gate A, which opens to the general public at noon (11:30 a.m. for Panther Club donors with membership card). Seating will be general admission in the lower bowl on the west side (home sideline) of the stadium.

Fans interested in viewing the game from the West Club can register here. Great Club seats are available for the 2019 Pitt football season and the Blue-Gold Game provides an outstanding opportunity to tour the West Club and discuss seating options with the Pitt ticket staff.

As in past years, the team will be divided by position into two separate squads. A true game format will be utilized with conventional scoring and four quarters of play.

At the conclusion of the game, the Panthers will host an autograph and photo session on the field. To participate, fans must preregister at the Pitt Athletics tent outside of Gate A before kickoff. Pitt football posters will be available for all attendees.

All events surrounding the Blue-Gold Game are free of charge. Parking will be available for a nominal fee in Gold Lot 1 and Gold Lot 2 beginning at 10 a.m.
