National Championship Celebration on Feb. 1st

As per the Tallahassee Democrat (sorry, unable to provide a link, so have copied and pasted). Hopefully, they will start to get these things right the first time:

Championship Celebration is on for Feb 1

The celebration is back on.

FSU will hold its community celebration of the Seminoles national college football champi­onship and undefeated season on Feb. 1.

The event will be held at noon inside Doak Campbell Stadium. It’s free, as is parking, and will end by 2 p.m., FSU officials say. Stadium gates will open at 11 a.m. and Seminole Village on Langford Green will be open at 9 a.m.

The celebration had been scheduled for Jan. 18, but was postponed because of scheduling conflicts with key players.

Following the formal program, fans will be invited on to the field to meet and personally congratulate players. While on the field, FSU officials are asking that fans refrain from seek­ing autographs so the players have the chance to talk with as many team’s supporters as pos­sible.

Following the event, 20,000 free commemo­rative posters will be given to fans as they exit the celebration.

In addition to the events beginning at noon, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. fans will get a chance to have their photos taken with the Dr Pepper Coaches’ Trophy on Langford Green and will be allowed to visit the Indoor Practice Facility where the Seminoles train. FSU officials say it also will be the only chance for fans to see the turf from the team’s road wins at Florida, the ACC Championship and the piece taken by linebacker Telvin Smith at the Rose Bowl on display in caskets at the Sod Cemetery before they are buried.

Those attending the event are asked to enter Doak Campbell through Gates B, C, D, F, G or X on the south side of the stadium by the Seminole Sport Shop and Unconquered statue. The normal bag policy for home games will be in effect. The Moore Center will not be open, so FSU officials say the best way to see the National Championship Trophy up close will be on Langford Green or during the official celebration.
