LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 14 (UPI) -- The coach of the University of Louisville women's basketball team in Kentucky said he will buy beers for the first 2,500 fans at Thursday night's game.
Jeff Walz said the first 2,500 fans to order their brews at Thursday night's Preseason WNIT semifinal game against Louisiana State, which is $2 beer night at the KFC Yum! Center, will receive their beverages on him, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal reported Thursday.
Walz said the beer promotion is a sign of gratitude to the team's loyal fans and an incentive for more people to come watch the team play.
"We're just trying to have a little bit of a good time here at the ballgame," Walz said. "Make sure you have a designated driver if you want to come and have a few of them."
"It's a little way to say thanks to all our adults who come and support us, and we're just trying to get some of our fans who haven't come out to come on out one time and get a drink and enjoy the ballgame and hopefully grab the attention of a few more fans," he said.
