KFC Yum! Center to host NBA preseason game

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The NBA is coming to the KFC Yum! Center in the form of a preseason game between the 2013 NBA champion Miami Heat and the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday October 4.

This is the first time the KFC Yum! Center will host an NBA game.

"It's a well-known fact that Kentucky is basketball country, yet many area fans have never been able to experience a professional game in person," said KFC Yum! Center General Manager Dennis Petrullo. "This event is a great opportunity for people to put aside their college basketball allegiances and cheer on some of the best players in the sport."


Tickets for the game go on sale Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m. at the KFC Yum! Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, Ticketmaster.com and by phone at 800-745-3000.
