Autograph Request

 

GENERAL POLICY

This policy applies to all memorabilia, autograph, charitable donations and other FOOTBALL related requests submitted.
  • No student-athlete autographs are available by request, but may be obtained at fan days or other special events.
  • Coach Smart autographed footballs are available for $50 to charitable organizations and individuals through the below request forms.  A portion of the $50 paid for each football goes toward covering the cost of the football and shipping and handling.  The remainder goes to The Kirby Smart Family Foundation.
  • No footballs or other memorabilia can be dropped off or shipped to Georgia Football for Coach Smart’s signature.  Autographs are only available on the footballs provided so that Coach Smart can sign in bulk and attempt to maintain an inventory.
  • All approved requests filed during the season are subject to Coach Smart’s schedule and are not guaranteed to be fulfilled.  All requests should be made as early as possible.
  • NCAA rules prohibit donations to, or for the benefit of, prospect-aged individuals (9th-12th grade).  This includes donations directly to such individuals, donations for scholarship funds, or other direct or indirect fundraising endeavors.

FAQ’s

Who receives the $50 payment for autographed footballs?
A portion of the $50 paid for each football goes toward covering the cost of the football and shipping and handling.  The remainder goes to The Kirby Smart Family Foundation.
 
What is The Kirby Smart Family Foundation?
Mary Beth and Kirby Smart have always exhibited the focus and work ethic required to become champions on and off the field.  They bring that same passion to the opportunity to help children and families who are facing adversity.  Working to be champions and help those in need in their home state of Georgia means so much to their family.
 
My charity’s event is in 1 week, can I still get an autographed football?
Delivery of the football cannot be guaranteed.  If your request has been approved and you do not receive the football before your event, we suggest offering a certificate for the football and you can forward the football to the recipient once it arrives.
 
Can Coach Smart and some football players autograph the football?
No, only Coach Smart’s signature is available for request.
