By now, everyone who is anyone knows that Kentucky Football is in the process of a culture change. Whether it is the renewed excitement from the fan base, the young and energetic staff that was brought in by Mark Stoops, or the uncharted territory of getting commitments from 4* recruits, Kentucky football is something that is on the rise. With the Spring game on the horizon, being played on April 26, ticket information is beginning to be released. In the most recent release, another indicator of just how much things have changed since Stoops arrival was seen. That indicator is a cap on the number of seats available to fans.
Due to construction at Commonwealth Stadium, seating in the south lower and south upper level sidelines will not be available. Capacity for the Blue/White Spring Game will be approximately 42,500.
Up until last season, that number would not have been an issue in the least. In the past, Spring games for Kentucky football were lucky to have 20,000 fans present. Last year, however, shattered the old record as 50,831 fans came out to watch Mark Stoops first group of Wildcats take the field. Stoops second year at the helm will be ushered in with approximately 8,000 less fans that his first group. Now, 42,500 fans is no slouch, especially for a spring game. But the fact that there may not be enough tickets to go around seems something of a dream for those of us that have been Kentucky football fans through all the lows.
So folks, as a new season approaches and the team prepares to take the field, keep in mind that tickets will be limited. If you are wanting to go, timing will be the key. Don’t hesitate and get your tickets early in the process. Follow the link here for more information.
