Mayor Gray previously told USA Today, that the renovation will be the “reinvention” of Rupp Arena and he also mentioned that the earliest that we could see some progress would be “sometime in 2013, with a major push in 2014.” In the same article, architectural consultant Gary Bates is mentioned in wanting to give Rupp Arena a “Screening Area” similar to Cowboy’s Stadium. So, fans without tickets can still view the game outside of Rupp Arena.
