LEXINGTON, Ky. (UK Athletics) – Kentucky football’s annual Heroes’ Day game is set for the Wildcats’ home game vs. Eastern Michigan at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 7 at Kroger Field.
UK Athletics is proud to honor all active and reserve members of the armed forces along with police, firefighters and first responders on Heroes’ Day and offer one complimentary game ticket to each hero. New in 2019, Heroes’ Day tickets will be available through GovX instead of in person as in previous seasons.
Through this new partnership with GovX, UK Athletics is pleased to offer members of eligible Heroes’ Day groups one complimentary ticket to the game in addition to specially priced guest tickets by purchasing at UKathletics.com/GovX, while supplies last. This offer is exclusively available online through GovX in advance of game day. UK Athletics will continue to honor these groups throughout the 2019 season by extending specially priced ticket offers through GovX to all home football games, while supplies last.
