University of Oregon to sell fan cutouts for Autzen Stadium

EUGENE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- You might be able to show up at Autzen Stadium this fall, after all.

Well, your picture at least.

No fans will attend any Ducks games this season, but the University of Oregon is taking a page out of the playbook of many sports teams during the pandemic and offering fans a chance to purchase cutouts of themselves to display at Autzen Stadium this season.

The cutouts, which can be purchased on fancutouts.com, will range from $50 for students and 2020 season ticket holders, to $75 for everyone else.
Fans are invited to send photos of themselves in Ducks gear for the cutouts.

Another $25, and the cutout will be sent to you after the season.

NewsChannel 21 spoke with a couple Central Oregon football fans who were excited about the announcement.

Oregon Ducks fan Debbie Courtain said, "I think it would be a fun way to show support of the team and again, try to make something out of a difficult situation."

Kim Leason, an Oregon State Beavers fan, added: "I think it shows team spirit, and I think it shows that we support athletics at the college level, even though we can't be there. I think that the thought of sending a virtual cutout of yourself to sit up there and watch them play, I think it's a really heartfelt gesture toward the athletes."

Oregon State has not yet announced any plans to offer similar cutouts, but Leason said she thinks the Beavers will follow the Ducks' lead soon.

The abbreviated 7-game Pac-12 season kicks off on Nov. 7.
The Ducks and Beavers will meet on Nov. 27.

  1. The idea is somewhat funny, but it also seems a little ridiculous. Maybe my outlook
    on it would be different if I didn’t detest the U of O…
    There are a lot of people that spend ridiculous amounts of money going to the games
    all season long, so I’m sure there will be plenty of people that are willing to waste
    another 100 dollars to stick their picture on a piece of cardboard and have it tossed
    into a seat by someone…
    Maybe Phil Knight finally got tired of dumping millions into the school, so they are
    having to get creative. I’m curious how many billions of dollars he has donated to
    the school over the years. It seems like about half of the buildings have his name on them…
