Saturday, September 15th, 2018, at 7pm the Bearcats will kick off against the Alabama A&M Bulldogs in spectacular fashion. Team Fastrax™ will make the Bearcats’ Nippert Stadium opener unforgettable with their fan favorite, patriotic American Flag demonstration jump.

Just before the game, right as the National Anthem starts to play, members of Team Fastrax™ will jump in with their majestic 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag, red white and blue streamers and a specially made “We Wear Cincinnati” flag.

“Team Fastrax™ is honored to perform our patriotic American Flag jump at such an important day at Nippert Stadium,” commented John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™. “It’s one of our favorite venues to perform at and the opening game excitement is sure to be palpable.”
