First kick is set for 7:30 p.m., and the game will be televised live on WSTR 64, streamed on FloFC (in-region) and ESPN+ (out-of-region), carried on the radio on WDJO with an audio stream on TuneIn (WDJO) and Pick-Six mini plans, and individual-game tickets and group options are on sale at or by calling 513-977-5425 (KICK).
