Sept. 3, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky Athletics has announced it will host Heroes’ Day on Saturday, Oct. 11 when the Kentucky football team squares off against ULM inside Commonwealth Stadium. The event is designed to honor all active, reserve and veteran members of the armed forces along with police, firefighters and first responders. Game time is still to be determined.

Among the tentative plans for the day is a football-field sized American flag, which will be presented by the UK Air Force ROTC and UK Army ROTC, recognition of personnel throughout the game and military VIPs in attendance.

To register a group (e.g. full police departments, fire departments, national guard units) for participation in the day’s events, a group representative should contact Nathan Schwake (; 859-257-5526).

Individual tickets may be obtained on game day with the presentation of a service ID at the ticket booth outside Gate 4, while supplies last.
