LEXINGTON, Ky. — With the upgrade process for current season ticket holders nearing completion, fans will be able to purchase new season tickets and select their seats beginning Tuesday morning, June 14. Tickets will be available at UKFootballTix.com or by calling 800-928-2287.
New season ticket holders will be able to use the Kentucky Football Virtual Venue to review and compare available season locations. The system also allows fans to see a 360-degree virtual view from the seats in Commonwealth Stadium.
Buying season tickets gives fans the best choice of seat locations for the 2016 season. Additionally, season ticket holders are eligible for Season Ticket Surprises drawings all summer long. Upcoming prizes include an authentic Kentucky football helmet signed by Mark Stoops, movie night in a Commonwealth Stadium hospitality area for you and 10 guests, and exclusive, early access at Kentucky football Fan Day.
UK Athletics has worked hard to create a variety of pricing options throughout the stadium. General public season tickets cost $280, including many that come with no corresponding K Fund donation attached. Full-time faculty and staff are able to once again purchase tickets at a discounted rate. Regular full-time faculty and staff can receive a 20 percent discount on the cost of tickets (up to two seats priced $280 and above), including a 50 percent discount on the K Fund donation (up to two seats), if selecting seats at the $525 donation level or below. The 50 percent K Fund discount does not apply to premium seating areas, including suites, loge and club seating.
There are also new $210 season tickets in the north upper level, as well as a brand-new Kentucky Football Pocket Pass that UK Athletics is excited to announce.
The Pocket Pass includes a mobile ticket to all seven home games for $175. This unique season pass gives fans the opportunity to watch games from different viewpoints in the stadium with a different seat each game. Your seat location will be delivered electronically to your mobile device through the Kentucky Wildcats Gameday app. Only 500 passes will be sold this season, and pass holders are guaranteed to sit in the lower level for at least two home games.
Kentucky football Mini-Packs will go on sale later this month through UKFootballTix.com (or by calling 800-928-2287). These two- and three-game Mini-Packs offer additional flexibility.
On July 19 at 9 a.m. ET, single-game tickets to all seven home games will go on sale to the general public through UKFootballTix.com (or by calling 800-928-2287), based on availability. Away game ticket orders will be accepted from the general public beginning in late June.
Student season tickets will go on sale later this summer, and students will receive more information by email later this month.
