|Welcome to Vanderbilt Stadium... home of Commodore football.
A Reminder to our Fans...
Due to an increase in security at all public venues, most sports stadiums , including Vanderbilt Stadium, now specifically prohibit backpacks and discourage other large bags and items. While the vast majority of our fans know and remember this policy, we had a few isolated instances before our first game in which someone had to return a backpack or bag to their car in order to gain admission. In order to prevent the inconvenience of returning prohibited items to your car, we encourage you to consider this policy when choosing the items that you bring into the stadium.
It is our goal to make your visit to our campus as pleasant and as safe as possible.
Vanderbilt Stadium gates open two hours before kickoff of each home game.

Commodore fans are widely known for their enthusiasm, team support, hospitality and sportsmanship. Our image is shaped not only by our student-athletes, coaches, students and faculty, but by our fans as well. Our goal is to create a first-class environment to lend support to our team while maintaining a safe and fun atmosphere for visiting fans as well.
In all sports, access to the competition area shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly-credentialed individuals at all times. For the safety of participants and spectators alike, at no time before, during or after a contest shall spectators be permitted to enter the competition area.
Students involved in such activities or other disruptive behavior will also be subject to disciplinary action. Students enjoy the rights and privileges that accrue to membership in a university community and are subject to the responsibilities which accompany that membership.
The Vanderbilt Athletic Department reserves the right to remove the ticket holder from the premises if in the sole opinion of the security personnel his or her conduct endangers or disrupts the players, coaches, officials or fans.
Vanderbilt Athletics thanks you for your support.

In Tennessee, particularly in September, development of heat related problems are a common occurrence during football games at Vanderbilt Stadium. A high heat index increases the body temperature leading to significant sweating and fluid loss. Unless fluids are appropriately replaced, heat-related illness may occur. Fans with cardiac, respiratory or gastrointestinal problems are at higher risk for heat illness. Heat problems can usually be prevented by:
- Applying sunscreen 15-30 SPF
Other medical problems may occur during a game. Should you become ill and feel the need for medical attention during a game, Event Staff or Security Personnel can direct you to find the nearest aid station or they can summon Emergency Medical Personnel if you are too sick to be moved. If you have significant medical problems, please bring a list of your medications with you to the game in case you have to be seen in our aid stations.
