Great news from Oxford as Ole Miss has just announced The Grove has been reopened for the coming fall football season.

While Rebel fans will certainly embrace this news, this announcement should really excite Lane Kiffin and his football program the most as Ole Miss now has the ability to fully capitalize on the momentum that began last fall.

“With its pageantry, hospitality and pure joy, there is no place on earth like The Grove, and as our lives return to normal, there is nothing that will give me more pleasure than to officially welcome Rebel Nation back to the greatest patch of grass in sports,” Ole Miss Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics Keith Carter said following this news. “With the unique tailgating atmosphere of The Grove and our new partnership with REVELXP to advance the experiences in and around Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, fall Saturdays at Ole Miss are going to be even more memorable.

“We’ve always said gamedays at Ole Miss are family reunions, and we can’t wait to have our family back together again this fall.”

If you thought Ole Miss recruited well during the previous recruiting cycle, just wait until prospects see The Grove rocking this fall and the improvements made on the field in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in 2021.

In addition to this news, Ole Miss has announced there will be new ways to enjoy Vaught-Hemingway in 2021:

  • North Plaza Walk of Champions: Turnkey, white glove tailgating services lining the bell tower bundled with pre-game experiences, premium food and beverage amenities and parking passes.
  • Pre-Game Pavilion: Indoor and outdoor experience between Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and The Pavilion that includes select food and beverage menu offerings, a beer garden and live entertainment.
  • Field Level Pre-Game and In-Game Experience: Accessible and premium viewing experiences in the northeast corner of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium offering top-class hospitality with food and beverage opportunities for groups of 30+.
