Senior Bowl Meet the Players
Mobile Convention Center
1 S. Water St. Mobile, AL 36604
$30, $20, $10
One of the highlights of Senior Bowl week for fans and players is the Coca Cola Meet the Players event. Held each Friday of Senior Bowl week, fans get to interact, get an autograph and snap a picture with their favorite player at the Exhibit Hall of the Mobile Convention Center. Fans often line up early in the morning for the event, which runs from 3:30 - 6 p.m. each year.
The event is divided into two sessions, the first from 3:30 - 4:45 p.m. and the second from 4:45 - 6 p.m. More information on the two sessions, including when specific players will be attending the event, will be available on the website the Thursday before the Meet the Players event.
Before thousands of fans pose for pictures with players during the Coca Cola Meet the Players event, they can enjoy several interactive displays, special activities and one-of-a-kind entertainment.
There are plenty of interactive displays from the New Orleans Saints, Under Armour, Coca-Cola and AT&T, plus games for the kids. And, after fans are finished meeting the players, they can stay and continue the fun as the Senior Bowl Experience goes until 7 p.m.
The Reese’s Senior Bowl Fan Experience will be operating under the clear bag policy. For safety reasons, and to help speed up lines during the event, only clear bags no larger that 12x12x6 are allowed in the Exhibit Hall. Small clutch purses are allowed.
