Cards’ Annual Military Appreciation Game on Nov. 12 will unveil POW/MIA Chair of Honor and debut new adidas “Young Patriot” Uniforms
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville and adidas today unveiled the ‘Young Patriot’ pack, featuring the Primeknit alternate football uniform and the adizero 5-Star 6.0 x KEVLAR® and FREAK x KEVLAR® cleats. The special edition pack pays homage to the nation’s active duty members and veterans, while creating a bold alternate look for the Cardinals for their game against Wake Forest on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m.
The game serves as Louisville’s annual Military Appreciation Game salute to honor those who serve and have served in the United States Armed Forces. Over 1,500 tickets have been generously donated by BAE Systems of Louisville and Humana to distribute to active duty soldiers, Veterans, and their families.
During the game, Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium will dedicate an unoccupied chair that is to remain perpetually empty. The Chair of Honor will pay tribute to the more than 91,000 service members who are POW and MIA since World War I – including current POWs.
The Chair of Honor, which will be permanently installed on the east terrace, will be accompanied by a plaque that reads: “This unoccupied chair honors those who are Prisoners of War (POW) or Missing in Action (MIA) and symbolizes there will always be a place in this stadium awaiting their return. You will never be forgotten. Dedicated November 2016 by the University of Louisville Cardinals.”
