You've been to Rupp Arena, the most storied college basketball arena in college basketball, before, but now you, the fans, have a chance to sit in the rowdiest student section in the country.
While the students are away for Winter Break, Kentucky is opening up the eRUPPtion Zone to the general public. Single-game tickets for the eRUPPtion Zone will be available to the public for the Austin Peay (Dec. 19), Drexel (Dec. 21), Long Beach State (Dec. 23) and Hartford (Dec. 29) games.
Fans may purchase the tickets at the Rupp Arena ticket office an hour and a half prior to game time on those select dates. Tickets cost $5 and may be purchased with cash only. One ticket is allowed per person and the ticket must be purchased in-person at the Rupp Arena ticket office prior to each game.
The Drexel game, which could be UK's first opportunity for win No. 2,000, has fewer eRUPPtion Zone tickets available than the other three December games, said Joe Sharpe, assistant athletics director for the UK ticket office.
