LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - After a season of reduced capacity due to Covid 19 protocols full capacity days at Cardinal Stadium are back. On Thursday afternoon U of L announced that they will return to full capacity starting with their home opener on September 11th against Eastern Kentucky.

We couldn’t be more excited to fill our house and welcome Card Nation back home. Get your tickets. Plan your tailgate. Bring your voice. Our football team and staff are so excited to see you. So am I. Let’s bring our Louisville Football life back to Floyd Street.”
