LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Saturday yard sale drew hundreds of U of L fans to Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

Fans waited in a long line to get into the yard sale where the school's Athletics Department was getting rid of official merchandise. 

Practice uniforms, jerseys, shoes and equipment from all sports were on sale for a discount. 

Organizers said it was a way to give back to loyal fans after a rough year for U of L sports. 

"We've all, as far as the department, we've been through a lot. But this is a good way to give back to the fans. The prices are really cheap, everything we've done here is positive," U of L Director of Equipment Operations Chuck Hall said. "Even the people that have been here since 6 o'clock in the morning waiting for this have been very patient. And when they go through they all say the same thing ... 'thanks for doing this. We love our cards.'" 

Some people waited in that long line for over two hours to get into the sale. Organizers say they plan to hold another sale in the future.
