The 2018 UGA football G-Day game is set for Saturday, April 21 at 4:00pm ET and will be televised by ESPN. Gates open at 1:00pm ET and admission is free.

Due to construction on the West End Zone Complex, fans that enter the stadium will be issued a pass to sit in a certain section. Below is more info on that from UGA:

Entrance to the G-Day Game will be free of charge.  With expected high demand and temporarily reduced seating due to the construction on the new West End Zone complex, we will be implementing a pass system to ensure that each guest has an enjoyable experience.  Upon entrance, you will receive a commemorative pass with a seating section. We ask that you sit in this section to help us as we manage what we expect to be a near-capacity crowd. Gates 2-9 will be open as usual, but Gate 10 (Gate under the bridge/ next to the Tate Center) will be closed due to construction. To help reduce congestion and further improve ingress flow, please enter on the side of the stadium where your preferred seating location would be.  Additional pass/entry questions can be directed to

UGA’s clear bag policy will also be in effect for the G-Day Game.

Below is information on G-Day, including the schedule of events and links to parking information.

Parking for the 2018 G-Day game is the same as previous years.  Parking is available all over campus on a first come-first served basis.  There are no other Georgia athletic events scheduled for April 21st, so all lots are open.
