Tennessee fans can head to Neyland Stadium at 4 p.m. ET on April 22 to get their first glimpse of what the Volunteers could look like in 2017.

The school announced the game’s date and start time on Thursday.

(UPDATE: The game will be played on SEC Network.)

Admission and parking are free, and the school is calling it “Fan Appreciation Day.”

Volunteers coach Butch Jones and players will be available for autographs. The cheerleaders and Smokey will be there for pictures with the fans.

Tennessee drew 67,027 fans to its spring game in 2016. The largest crowd it ever has drawn for a spring game was in 1986, when 73,801 fans showed up following a win in the Sugar Bowl.
