Racing Louisville FC is excited to host its Pups at the Pitch game on Wednesday, June 14, as the club hosts the Houston Dash! Gates open at 7 p.m. before kickoff at 8 p.m.
Fans can bring their furry friends to Lynn Family Stadium on this special game night, with tickets on sale below benefiting the Kentucky Humane Society. The first 500 fans entering through the gates with their dog will also receive a collapsible water bowl!
New this year, Flew The Coop — a charitable initiative founded by Racing board member Chris Harding — will match contributions to the Kentucky Humane Society! Named after Harding’s dog, Cooper, Flew The Coop supports nonprofit organizations dedicated to rescuing dogs in need and providing emergency assistance to pets in crisis.
We’re also hosting a pet food drive with local news anchor Dawne Gee’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit, “A Recipe to End Hunger.” Click here for more information.
- You must sign a waiver indicating your dog is up to date on vaccines and that you accept liability for your dog’s actions. The waiver can be found below or filled out on site.
- Pups at the Pitch participants must purchase tickets in the Waterfront End of Lynn Family Stadium. Season Ticket Members can use their existing ticket but must go to the Waterfront End.
- Enter through Gate 4.
- Dogs must remain in the Waterfront End and cannot proceed past Section 200 or 228.
- One dog is permitted per adult.
- No retractable leashes are allowed.
Should you take your dog to the game?
Yes, if your dog:
- Is up to date on all required vaccinations and old enough to be around other dogs and people (4+ months of age)
- Is in relatively good health and can walk up and down several flights of stairs
- Does well on leash and is not reactive toward other dogs or humans
- Does well with crowds and loud noises such as fireworks and cheering
Probably not, if your dog:
- Is unvaccinated or under 4 months of age
- Is a senior dog that would have trouble navigating stairs and being outside for an extended period of time
- Tends to get overheated
- Has reactive tendencies toward other dogs or humans
- Is exhibiting any signs of illness close to the day of the game such as cough, nasal discharge, lethargy or diarrhea. These symptoms can be signs of potentially infectious illnesses and it would probably be best for your dog, as well as the other dogs in attendance, if they did not attend.
- Has issues with loud noises (fireworks, loud music, sirens, etc. will occur before/during/after the game)
