Wednesday, UK announced its partnership with 15 Seconds of Fame, an app that lets fans watch their video board moments at athletic events. The app will allow UK sports fans to watch their Kroger Field video board moments after the game through the app.

UK is the first school in the SEC to partner with 15 Seconds of Fame, who already have agreements with many collegiate and professional athletic programs around the nation. They also have agreements with the NFL and MLB, so fans can see their own moments at every NFL and MLB game.

“We are thrilled to enter the SEC with Kentucky,” said Brett Joshpe, CEO of 15 Seconds of Fame. He said Kentucky is “a school with a proud history of athletics and a fan base that eats, sleeps and breathes Wildcat sports.”

Fans can use the app starting with the UK-Florida football game this Saturday at Kroger Field. Users upload a selfie to the app to sign up, and can view their own video board clips on their device after the event.

“We are always in search of new ways to enhance experiences for our fans and help them create lasting memories at our events and this app is a great way for us to do exactly that,” UK Associate Athletics Director for Marketing and Licensing Nathan Schwake said.
