LEXINGTON, Ky. — With the attendance capacity for John Cropp Stadium set at 20 percent, the Kentucky Softball team is inviting fans who can’t make games in-person this season to be close to the action in the form of a cardboard cutout, which will be placed inside the stadium for the duration of the 2021 home schedule.
Similar to other major sporting events around the world, Kentucky Athletics will be taking photos sent in from the Big Blue Nation and placing them in vacant seats around John Cropp Stadium so fans will be able to see themselves in attendance in the form of a cutout on national television.
To purchase your cardboard cutout, visit https://ukathletics.com/fancutouts [nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com]. Fan cutouts are $40 and softball fans will need to simply click on John Cropp Stadium from the drop-down menu.
Fans who are not able to attend games this season are also encouraged to consider a charitable gift in support of UK Athletics and the new Ev’ry Wildcat Fund. This new fund will be used to sustain the mission of UK Athletics, serving our student-athletes, during these unprecedented times. Proceeds from the cutouts will directly benefit scholarships for the 500+ UK student-athletes, including tuition, room and board, educational support, and more. Fans are encouraged to contact the K Fund to learn more.
