Chargers FanFest 2016, presented by Bud Light, returns to Qualcomm Stadium on Saturday morning, August 6, and admission and parking are free. Fans will enjoy the team's first appearance in Qualcomm Stadium in 2016 along with an opportunity to get autographs from many of the franchise's great former players.
The parking lot will open for fans at 9 a.m. and the stadium gates will open at 9:30. As soon as the gates open, a number of Chargers alumni will be stationed on the plaza concourse (Gates A, D and G) signing autographs for fans. A few of the former Chargers greats scheduled to attend include Luis Castillo, Stephen Cooper, Raylee Johnson, Darren Carrington, Billy Ray Smith and Ed White.
At 10:15 a.m., the action shifts to the field with the debut of the 2016 Charger Girls. The Chargers will take the field for a full-pad practice where fans will see their favorite players, including Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates, Keenan Allen and Jason Verrett.
Fans attending FanFest also will see the best season seats available for the 2016 season tagged for the annual Select-A-Seat Day. Fans interested in looking at season-ticket options can access the stadium through the Chargers Ticket Office at Gate C at the stadium starting at 9 a.m. Every fan who becomes a new Season Tickets Member at FanFest will receive a free Chargers replica micro-helmet and 2016 Chargers Yearbook (one per account). Single-game tickets to all 10 home games also will be on sale.
Fans should bring an appetite to FanFest as hot dogs and soft drinks will be available for just $2 apiece. Also, some of the newest Chargers merchandise and apparel, including jerseys, hats and t-shirts, will be available at the Chargers Team Store at Gate G. Every fan who spends at least $50 anywhere inside the stadium during FanFest will receive a 2016 Chargers Yearbook as a gift.
Many of the entertainers who are at the stadium on game days will also be in attendance at FanFest and fans will have an opportunity to get their faces painted and receive temporary tattoos among other fan-friendly opportunities on the Plaza level concourse between Gates A and C.
