So, here we are Cats fans with just 6 days left before the Spring Game and we get to see our football cats take the field Saturday, April 26th at 3:30 pm in Commonwealth Stadium. I put out the information about a month ago but realized that it may have been a bit too early, so here it is again. The only info that I don’t currently have is parking restrictions but I have made some inquiries with UK and hopefully we will get an answer soon.
Seating in the north upper level will be for general admission and seating in the lower level will be reserved. It is set up that way so that season ticket holders can get tickets before the general public.
Season ticket holders will have the opportunity to get free tickets starting Monday, Mar. 10, at 9 a.m. Current season ticket holders will receive an e-mail this week detailing how they may obtain up to six tickets. Below are the ways to get Spring Game tickets.
- Online at Ticketmaster.com
- By calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 OR
- In person at Ticketmaster outlets in Kentucky
- NOTE: Tickets are free but there is a small service charge per ticket
UK students may obtain their free tickets beginning Monday, Mar. 10, at 9 a.m. at the Joe Craft Center ticket office. Students may pick up two tickets per ID.
Remaining tickets will be available to the general public through the same Ticketmaster channels beginning Wednesday, March 19 at 9 a.m.
Tickets still available on game day (April 26) may be picked up free of charge at the stadium, based on availability. 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.
There are two points here that I want to point out to you. One, It looks like there is a limit on how many tickets you can get (6). And two, due to construction, it appears that there will only be room for 42,500 football fans. Last year – as must of you know – we had 50,000. I was hoping we could top that number this year but I guess not.
Also, the UK Alumni Association will be having a tailgating party. Here are a few details from ukalumni.net
