Kentucky to Play Nebraska in 2024 AVCA First Serve Showcase

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The American Volleyball Coaches’ Association (AVCA) First Serve Showcase is returning in 2024 and the Kentucky Wildcats will be a part of the action on August 27 in Louisville, the organization announced Monday.

The four-team, two-match event will take place at the KFC Yum! Center in downtown Louisville with Kentucky facing Nebraska at 7 p.m. ET and the host Cardinals facing Wisconsin 30 minutes following the conclusion of the UK/NU match. Both games will be televised by the ESPN family of networks, with specific channel designations announced at a later date.

“The AVCA is very excited to bring together four teams of this caliber to get the new season started,” says AVCA CEO Dr. Jaime Gordon. “AVCA First Serve offers another way to showcase the sport and continue the momentum from the record-setting 2023 season.”

With AVCA First Serve taking place in Louisville on Aug. 27, it means the 2024 season will both begin and end at the KFC Yum! Center, which is also the site of the 2024 NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship Dec. 19 and 22.

Tickets for AVCA First Serve will go on sale Friday, June 14 at 10 am at the KFC Yum! Center box office and ticketmaster.com. There will be a presale period from June 10-13. For more information on the AVCA First Serve Showcase, click here.
