The University of Louisville will celebrate the men’s basketball national championship and the women’s team’s surprising appearance in the national title game at 5 this afternoon at the KFC Yum! Center. 

Here’s ticket information:

UofL season ticket holders will have the opportunity to pick up free tickets to the event from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Athletic Ticket Office, located near Gate 2 of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Season ticket holders should bring their Cardinal Athletic Fund number, which they will receive in an email Tuesday night. After 2 p.m., based on availability, remaining seats may be picked up on a first come, first served basis at the KFC Yum! Center box office.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m.

Earlier this week, Louisville Metro Police issued a notice that streets would be closed downtown with the title “NCAA Parade Schedule.” But Mayor Greg Fischer said on Twitter on Tuesday that reports of a parade are incorrect.
