Before we get to some Georgia football game day reminders, I’ll share some fun facts about Sanford Stadium.

  • The last time that Georgia played at Sanford Stadium was  November 20, 2021. The Dawgs were 10-0 and beat Charleston Southern 56-7.
  • The last time they lost at home? It was November 7, 2020 against Florida.
  • Sanford Stadium played host to the 1996 Olympic Games for the medal round of the finals in soccer which was watched by over three billion people worldwide
  • The iconic hedges have been part of the stadium since 1029
  • There is a mausoleum in the southwest corner of the stadium, reserved for when each UGA passes away.

Stadiums around the country updated policies, especially during Covid. The good news? According to ugastadium.com  Sanford Stadium no longer requires masking or limited seating. There are still a few reminders for what you can’t bring inside the stadium.

Prohibited items

  • Non-clear bags & backpacks
  • Clear bags larger than 12”x12”
  • Laser pointers
  • Thermos bottles, bottles, and cans
  • Infant seats/strollers
  • Artificial noisemakers
  • Umbrellas
  • Weapons of any kind
  • Ice bags
  • Hard-surfaced materials
  • Ice Chests
  • Food/drink containers
  • Cameras with detachable lenses
  • Seatbacks larger than 16” or that have arms or pockets

Sanford Stadium has a strictly NO alcohol or any other intoxicants in the venue rule neither are attendees allowed to smoke on UGA grounds. Offenders found with an intoxicant or smoking will be ejected out of the stadium without any form of a refund.

The good news about Saturday’s weather? Cooler with temperatures in the mid 70’s around kickoff at 4:00pm. The bad news is a good change of rain. I would bring a raincoat.

If you can’t be at the game or watch it, don’t forget WGAC’s game day coverage begins at Noon. Something new this year, we’ll have the games available on the NEW WGAC App! You can get it in the app store or HERE.
