The event will be held Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. ET in Rupp Arena, and tickets will go on sale to the public on Aug. 14, at 10 a.m. ET. For the first time, a team of University of Kentucky pros will face a team of North Carolina pros.

All seats are reserved and priced at $50 and $100 (premium lower level), $25 (lower level), $10 (premium upper level), and $5 (upper level). Tickets can be purchased at the Rupp Arena box office, online at Ticketmaster.com, at any Ticketmaster Outlet or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. There is an eight-ticket limit per person. All orders will have additional fees attached plus a $1 facility fee. All proceeds from the game will go to charity.

Set to tip off Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. ET, the game will feature UK players either currently or formerly playing professionally against North Carolina players either currently or formerly playing professionally.

The Big Blue Nation will have an opportunity to enjoy some of the top talent to don the Blue and White against other elite talent. Per NBA rules, the University of Kentucky cannot confirm individual players participating in the exhibition game.

The 2013 UK Alumni Game featured Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones and Patrick Patterson, Brandon Knight and John Wall playing against a team of UK villains. It also raised a reported $1,005,000 for 17 charities.
