Fans will have a chance to see former Kentucky Wildcats once more in the annual UK Alumni Charity Game.

On Monday, UK announced all of the details regarding this year’s game, which takes place Aug. 25 in Rupp Arena. This year’s event will feature two games, with a Legends Game starting at 7 p.m. and the UK Alumni Charity Game tipping off at 8 p.m. Doors to Rupp Arena will open at 6 p.m. ET.

The Legends Game will feature legends from the past, while the annual UK Alumni Charity Game will feature current UK pros against one another. Per NBA rules, the University of Kentucky cannot confirm any current NBA players participating in the exhibition game, so we won’t know who’s taking part until later dates.

As for the Legends Game, it currently includes UK greats and former NBA players Derek Anderson, Keith Bogans, Rex Chapman, Joe Crawford, Tony Delk, Kevin Grevey, Kyle Macy and Kenny ‘Sky’ Walker, among others.

Tickets for the 2017 UK Alumni Charity Game will go on sale to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. You can buy tickets at the Rupp Arena box office, online at, at any Ticketmaster Outlet or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Proceeds from the games have normally gone to the Calipari Foundation and other charities. The first charity game came in 2012 and has been held every year since with the exception of 2014.

Last year’s charity event was a softball game due to the renovations at Rupp Arena.
