It may be the middle of summer, but Texas A&M University is inviting fans to a fall tradition early this year – Midnight Yell Practice – as part of the filming of its national football commercial that will air during fall games. The university is asking for 5,000 fans to come to Kyle Field on Friday, July 30 at 7 p.m. for an evening* that will include free food and special edition T-shirts.

“No other university can draw thousands of fans at midnight before Gameday like Texas A&M has done for nearly a century,” said Shane Hinckley, vice president of brand development at Texas A&M. “It’s one of our most powerful and unique traditions. We’re excited to have it featured in our national commercial aired during Southeastern Conference (SEC) and non-conference games.”

The first 1,000 fans through the gate will receive a free, special edition Texas A&M T-shirt.

Attendees will enter through the northeast entrance of Kyle Field at 7 p.m. to be in place for filming beginning at sundown. Fans should expect to be at the stadium for several hours.

Brookshire Brothers will be on site providing free food and refreshments, but fans are encouraged to bring unopened bottled water and snacks. Participants need to be 18 or older or show up with a parent/guardian.

Free public parking is available for this event in:

Fans are asked to wear Aggie gear/school colors, and to avoid large logos unrelated to the university. Attire with obscene, indecent or profane content is not allowed. Those who leave the stadium during filming will not be allowed reentry. Kyle Field’s clear bag policy and rules here will be in effect.
