University of Nebraska-Lincoln


2 1/2 hours prior to kick-off, the UNL Marching Band takes the field inside Memorial Stadium to practice their upcoming pregame and halftime performances. The public is invited to sit in the stands to watch practice–a great way to see the band show and sit in Memorial Stadium, even if you don’t have tickets to the game!

Everyone is welcome, but strict security rules do apply:

  • Enter and exit the stadium through Gate 3 ONLY. Gate 3 is located in the southwest corner of the stadium. See map.
  • ALL guests must sit in Section 26 in the west stadium or in Section 6 in the east stadium depending on the show’s orientation. See map. A sign will be posted on Gate 3 telling you where the seating is for that day. Please don’t wander into another area of the stadium.
  • Please be courteous to the stadium staff and security personnel. They have a difficult job to do and they’re trying to keep everyone safe.
  • A security check will be done immediately following rehearsal. Please exit the stadium quickly remembering to take all of your personal belongings, water bottles and food wrappers with you.
