The University of Cincinnati game vs. the Miami Hurricanes is sure to be an unforgettable night. The Bearcats will open the American Athletic Conference play on Thursday October 1st, at their newly renovated Nippert Stadium. The game starts at 7:30 p.m., and as part of the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will be performing their famous pyrotechnic skydive along with their American Flag jump. The night pyro is their most requested show and often causes UFO sightings in the surrounding areas. The show will be shown on the scoreboard with live air-to-ground video, so spectators can experience the show on a whole new level. The show consists of four TSA fireworks-licensed Team Fastrax demonstrators. They typically exit the aircraft at 5,000 to 4,500 feet above the ground. Pyro is ignited under canopy all the way to 500 feet then the demonstrators land in the target area.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™ said, “We are honored to be performing our pyrotechnic skydive for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats game, especially at such an amazing venue. The Nippert Stadium is sure to be packed and it will be a night to remember. ”

According to the Nippert Stadium website, the University of Cincinnati marks the beginning of a new era in the football program’s history entering 2015 with the opening of the newly renovated Nippert Stadium. Fans entering the gates might not recognize the third-oldest facility in the NCAA FBS after it underwent an $86-million renovation and expansion project that started in December 2013.

Through numerous renovations, the structure situated in the middle of the Clifton campus has retained its early-century brickwork, wrought iron gates, and trim giving Nippert a comfortable old-time stadium charm and appeal, while remaining a classic showplace for college football. UC will go from having nearly no premium seating options to the addition of 1,100 scholarship club seats and 53 indoor and outdoor suites of varying sizes in a new four-story press box.

Team Fastrax™ is sponsored by Selection Management Systems, a leading provider of criminal background checks and pre-employment screening services. Team Fastrax™ is the most ambitious professional skydiving team in the world. The parachute demonstration team has a roster of more than twenty-nine active members, with a collective of more than 300,000 skydives. Team Fastrax™ performs exhibition skydives all over the world, for audiences large and small, as a patriotic display or product promotion.
