Kentucky is getting in on the popular Pokemon Go act on Wednesday afternoon, allowing fans into the stadium to catch their own Pokemon.

Via Twitter, UK Athletics announced it is allowing fans to come to Gate 9 between 4:30-6:30 p.m. with the promise that “Cats catch ’em all!” Parking is available in the Red Lot off University Drive.

The University of Nebraska had an event last week at its stadium for fans to capture the animated characters on the football field, too. Thousands flocked to the field.

“It’s just a chance to get some people on the field,” said Guy Ramsey, a UK athletics spokesman. There will be a disc jockey on hand playing “kid friendly music” and some waters available for visitors.
