The event will run from 6-8 p.m., and includes a special program in which each of the Utes’ head coaches will appear and talk about the upcoming season, according to a news release from U of U Athletics.

“Fans will get their first look inside select areas of the spectacular expansion of Rice-Eccles Stadium, which includes the brand-new Utah Football locker room, visiting team locker room, Field Club, Suite Club, Premium Terrace and restaurant,” the news release said. “The Ken Garff Red Zone at Rice-Eccles Stadium is nearing completion after nearly 18 months of construction, and will increase the stadium’s capacity to 51,444 when the 2021 season opens on Thursday, Sept. 2, at 5:30 p.m., against Weber State.”
