Kentucky Football Fan Day is this Saturday, August 6, and this morning, we finally got some details.
This year’s event is open to the public, free, and will feature an open practice on the practice fields at the Joe Craft Football Training Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. Free parking will be available in the blue lot at Kroger Field. Fans can begin entering the facility at 10 a.m. at the practice field gate in the plaza outside Gate 12 of Kroger Field. Fans will be asked to stay behind the rope line on the perimeter of the practice field, which will be controlled by UK event management staff.
Fan Day will also feature a call to action for fans to consider a contribution to the Red Cross to support people affected by the floods in Kentucky. Donations enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to, and help people recover from the disaster. Signs with QR codes to the donation page will be posted throughout the facility.
Free Kentucky football schedule posters will be available and the UK Bookstore will be on hand to sell UK merchandise in the plaza. Fans can take photos with UK’s trophies from the Wildcats’ four consecutive bowl game victories, plus the Governor’s Cup throughout the day.
Those in attendance are reminded to consider the latest health and safety protocols on the UK campus. Prizes will be awarded throughout the event. Players and coaches will also have the opportunity to throw mini footballs and other prizes to those in attendance at the conclusion of practice. UK’s ticket sales staff will be on hand to discuss ticket packages for the 2022 season with interested fans. UK concessions will sell pre-packaged snacks and bottled water.
