Fans attending the open practices can park for free in the West Lot of Scott Stadium and enter through the West Gate. Gates will open at 11:45 a.m. for both practices.
Virginia will play its annual Orange-Blue spring football scrimmage at Scott Stadium on Saturday, April 6. Gates will open at 11 a.m. with on-field activities available for fans starting at 11:30 a.m. The Orange-Blue spring football scrimmage will begin at 1 p.m.
Virginia fans will have an opportunity to view and walk-through the football practice fields, including the new George Welsh Indoor Practice Facility, on Saturday, March 30 from 2-5 p.m.
"I'm really excited about having the George Welsh Indoor Practice Facility available this spring," London said.
