LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The annual Kentucky Football Fan Day has been slated for Saturday, Aug. 6 at Commonwealth Stadium, as the Kentucky football team will hold an open practice along with an autograph session and fireworks show.

Gates for the event will open at 5 p.m. ET with the open practice, which will consist of offensive, defensive and special team drills, beginning at 6 p.m. ET. Parking will be available in the green, red or blue lots surrounding Commonwealth Stadium.

“We changed the format of the event last year and I think the fans really liked it,” Phillips said. “I think it is important for the fans to see what we do on a daily basis and understand how hard our players work on the practice field. Fan Day is a great chance for our fans to meet our players and our staff and it is something we enjoy doing.”

The open practice will run until 8 p.m. ET and be followed by an introduction of the players and an autograph session. Players and coaches will sign autographs before a fireworks show closes the event. The fireworks are scheduled to take place at approximately 9:30 p.m. ET.

Because of the construction of the new state-of-the-art video boards, ribbon boards, and sound system, a temporary sound system will be used for this year’s Fan Day event and video boards will not be available.

Complete schedule:
5 p.m.                          Gates open
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.             Open practice
8 p.m.                          Players announced, autograph session
9:30 p.m.                     Fireworks show
