ATHENS — Georgia couldn’t say who or exactly what it would be, but there’s going to be “pregame entertainment” at the G-Day Game on April 16.
The Bulldogs and first-year coach Kirby Smart have rather infamously called for a fans to pack-out 92,746-seat Sanford Stadium for their annual spring intrasquad game. They’ve been using the hashtag #93KDay to promote it.
UGA sent out a news release on Thursday and made Matt Brachowkski, its director of event management, available to answer questions about the logistics involved before the Bulldogs’ second practice of the spring session. But Brachowski insisted he couldn’t shed any light on the entertainment plans.
“I don’t know who it is; they’re still working on it,” Brachowski said. “But that’s the idea. What else could we provide for the game that you couldn’t get sitting there watching (on TV) at home to get extra folks in there. … The idea is to get some musical act in there, but they’re still throwing out ideas.”
Georgia had country music recording artist Jason Aldean play Sanford Stadium a couple of years ago. Brachowksi was asked if it might be someone on that level.
“We’re trying to get folks there,” Brachowski said. “My guess is it’s going to be somebody people have heard of and not me and a microphone out there on the 50.”
Brachowski was able to share that parking lots will open at 7 a.m., that there will be a Football Letterman’s Flag Game at 1:15 p.m., the Dawg Walk will be at 2:50 and pregame entertainment will begin at 3 p.m. That’s also what time the team will start stretching, so that should be an interesting scene.
