Louisville Football fans have been desperately wanting a true spring game. We haven’t had one since the days of Bobby Petrino. Coach Scott Satterfield is bringing it back to life. UofL will hold a spring game this Sunday April 3rd at 4:00 pm.
The game will be more of a practice than a scrimmage, although there will be a controlled scrimmage after the first 40 minutes. It will also air on the ACC Network. So, fans that can’t attend will be able to watch it and it will air for recruits nationwide to see.
So, we will get to see the Cards in the preseason and see who’s standing out, who’s looking to be a starter, and which freshman might see significant playing time. Head to Cardinal Stadium Sunday if you can to watch the Cards finish out their spring practices.
Below you can find all the details about when parking lots open, when gates open, etc:

Press Release From Louisville Athletics:
Louisville Football To Hold Spring Game on Sunday
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Football returns to Cardinal Stadium Sunday, April 3, when the University of Louisville hosts its Spring Game at 4 p.m.
The event, which will resemble a more traditional practice than a typical game, is free to the public. The scrimmage will be televised on the ACC Network with Wes Durham, Rocky Boiman and Lericia Harris.
The Cardinals will conduct a traditional practice for approximately the first 40 minutes until head coach Scott Satterfield puts his team through a controlled scrimmage situation, which will feature several drives that will last a minimum of eight plays.
UofL fans will get their first look at the 2022 Cardinals, which features exciting new staff members, newcomers and transfers to join a team that returns 16 starters from last year’s squad that appeared in the First Responder Bowl.
The Cardinals return one of the most exciting offensive players in the nation in quarterback Malik Cunningham. The four-year starter rushed for 1,034 yards and threw for a career best 2,941 yards and 19 touchdowns. The defense will once again be anchored by second team all-conference linebacker Yasir Abdullah, who recorded 10 sacks a year ago and 17 tackles for loss.
Parking lots will open at noon and fans can enter the stadium beginning at 3 p.m., with seating only on the East side of the stadium.
Fans can enter Gate 2 of Cardinal Stadium and the first 5,000 fans will receive a free 2022 Football Schedule Poster.
Former UofL great and Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch will entertain the crowd with interviews from coaches and selected players during the game.
