Louisville’s first hoops scrimmage tipoff set

The first public Red-White intrasquad scrimmage for the University of Louisville men’s basketball team on Oct. 3 will start at 4:30 p.m. in the KFC Yum! Center. UofL’s football team plays at NC State at 12:30 p.m. earlier that day.

Tickets for the scrimmage, as well as those for the second Red-White contest on Oct. 17 presented by Mark’s Feed Store, are on sale for $10 at the UofL Ticket Office, located near Gate 2 of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium at 2800 South Floyd Street. The ticket office is open weekdays from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Tickets will also be on sale prior to the Cardinals’ Sept. 26 football game against Samford.

Cardinal fans may also purchase the tickets by visiting Ticketmaster online at www.Ticketmaster.com, calling 1-800-745-3000 or by visiting any Ticketmaster Ticket Center, including statewide Kroger locations. Convenience fees are applied with Ticketmaster orders.

A limited number of tickets are available for UofL students to each scrimmage at no charge. Student tickets — no more than two for each scrimmage — must be obtained with a valid student ID in advance at the UofL ticket office.

Game time for the Oct. 17 scrimmage will be set when the kickoff time for the Cardinals’ football game at Florida State on that day is determined, so as not to conflict with each other.
