You’ve seen them at Royals games and other college and pro venues across the country, and now you can be in one.

Kansas Athletics announced this week that it would provide KU fans the opportunity to have a fan cutout of themselves placed inside Allen Fieldhouse for the 2020-21 basketball season.

The cost is $62 — to honor the NCAA-record 62 regular season conference titles won by the KU men’s basketball program — and the proceeds from the sales will benefit the Jayhawk Relief Fund which was created to assist KAI with financial shortfalls from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fans wanting to purchase a KU cutout for themselves, or for friends or family members, can log on to The site includes instructions for how to order and submit photos, as well as what kind of KU gear to wear and backgrounds to use to maximize your appearance at Allen Fieldhouse.

All cutouts are roughly 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall and they will be placed randomly throughout Allen Fieldhouse for both men’s and women’s games and not in specific seats.

Fans will be allowed to collect their cutouts after the 2020-21 season as a keepsake.

KU recently announced that Allen Fieldhouse is expected to have a capacity of around 2,100 fans for all men’s and women’s home games this season because of safety restrictions put in place because of the pandemic.

Kansas Athletics reserves the right to reject any photo that it determines to be in violation of cutout guidelines or is otherwise offensive, lewd, derogatory, infringing, discriminatory or inappropriate. If your photo is rejected, a KU staff member will contact you about obtaining a new photo.
