Louisville Cardinals Women’s Volleyball TicketsThe University of Louisville’s women’s volleyball team is the historically premier program in the ACC. The Cardinals have been selected to the NCAA Tournament 28 times, more than any other league school. The atmosphere at home matches tends to be electric as well as fans and students regularly pack the arena. In fact, official attendance figures are often above the listed capacity. Despite a purported capacity of 1,000 people, a total of 1,074 fans squeezed in to watch Louisville sweep Notre Dame, 25-21, 25-18, 25-14, on Nov. 22, 2019. Attendees at Cardinals matches are witnessing some winning volleyball action on the court. In 2019, the Cardinals advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight for the first time in school history, and women’s volleyball fans are hoping for more postseason runs like that one in seasons to come. If you’d like to be a part of the winning action, join the fans heading to L&N Federal Credit Union Arena this fall. Pick up your Louisville Cardinals women’s volleyball tickets at StubHub.
