The one-hour event, which will be held outside the stadium’s main entrance at Gate B, is free and open to the public and will also be broadcast live on K-StateHD.TV. The ceremony will include video presentations and comments from Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, K-State president Kirk Schulz, athletic director John Currie, and football coach Bill Snyder, among others.
Parking in the stadium’s west lot opens at 9 a.m. and is free, but fans are asked to clear the lot immediately after the ceremony to allow stadium crews to prepare for pregame activities. All stadium parking lots will reopen at 2:30 p.m., five hours before the 7:30 p.m. kickoff. The football game is sold out.
Seating for the dedication will be limited and assigned, but there will be seating for guests who are physically impaired or unable to stand for long periods. A public open house of the center will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Sept. 13.
