CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics has taken additional steps to improve the Game Day experience for fans coming to campus for Saturday night’s 8 p.m. game vs. Connecticut.
To ease traffic and congestion in and around campus and the stadium, fans are encouraged to arrive early and make their way into Nippert Stadium as soon as possible as the game is a sellout, UC’s second of the season.
Including the final two regular-season games vs. West Virginia and Illinois, which also are both sold out, UC has eight sellouts over the last three seasons. Nippert Stadium has been home to Bearcats football since 1902, making it the fourth-oldest playing site and sixth-oldest stadium in college football.
The UC Ticket Office, located on the main floor of the Richard E. Lindner Center, will open at 5 p.m. for customer service issues. Will Call tickets will be open for pickup at 6:30 p.m. at the windows located in between Lindner Center and Fifth Third Arena.
The UC Football team’s CATWALK will parade through Sigma Sigma Commons at 5:45 p.m., while the Nippert Stadium gates will open 90 minutes prior to kickoff at 6:30 p.m. A full assortment of CATSVISION programming begins at that time, including a showing of FOX Sports Ohio’s BEARCATS SPORTS WEEKLY with Brian Kelly.
In the stadium, UC Athletics has more than doubled the number of restrooms, with the majority being added outside of the southwest wall adjacent to Tangeman University Center. Additional restroom units have been placed in Victory Plaza in front of Lindner Center, along with UC merchandise and concessions.
Fans in the Bearcat Lair (Sec. 131-135) and the West Side of the venue (Sec 119-127) are encouraged to utilize the restroom facilities in the “Knuckle Building,” which is located in the northwest corner of Nippert Stadium.
