UK Football Fan Day set for August 9th

Something tells me this year’s Fan Day will be a little bigger…

UK Football’s annual Fan Day has been scheduled for Friday, August 9th at 6 p.m. in Commonwealth Stadium. The team will hold an autograph session, followed by an open practice along with a fireworks show. Admission and parking to the event is free of charge.

Gates for the event will open at 6 p.m. (gates 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12 will be open) with 2013 posters and schedules cards available at gates 1, 4, 9 and 12 beginning at approximately 5:30 p.m. The 2013 Wildcats will be available for autographs on the main concourse with C.M. Newton Field accessible for fans to take photos. The autograph session will conclude at 7:15 p.m. with the team hitting the field for open practice at 7:30 p.m.

A fireworks show will close the event following the conclusion of the open practice, which is scheduled to end at approximately 9:45 p.m.

Parking will be available in the green, red or blue lots surrounding Commonwealth Stadium.

Mark Stoops is pretty excited about it:

“After seeing the crowd and enthusiasm in Commonwealth Stadium for the Blue/White Game a few months ago we are very anxious to get back in front of the Big Blue Nation. Fan Day is not only an opportunity for our players to interact with our great fans, but for us to get on the Commonwealth Stadium field and get some work in. We are very excited to get the players here for fall camp and get this season going.”

    Have they practiced in the past for this? I feel like it always been just a meet and greet type of deal. I’m probably wrong, I just don’t remember them practicing in the past.

    Can’t wait to be there. KSR needs to start pushing this on the radio show like they did the spring game. Gotta pack it up.

    @ #2 they have held a practice before. Last year at least. Usually the players practiced first and then signed autographs for an hour or 2.

    The timing of this is terrible…Everybody does realize that this is on a FRIDAY, right?…Why?..What are folks who work and those that have to drive several hrs. suppose to do…The timing of this will more than likely make it very hard for them to attend…Just makes zero sense to do have it on a Friday…Sounds like something the previous staff would have done…

    Agree with #7 about Fan Day being on a friday, is this a typo by any chance? Tina has been coming to Fan Days for the past several years and they have always been on saturdays. What about those of us that live outside of the Lexington area, we are not going to be able to attend. Please, somebody tell me the date is actually SATURDAY the 10th!!!!!
