Spring game tickets going at record rate

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Tickets to Kentucky's annual Blue/White Spring Game have been available for just a matter of hours, but the 2013 spring game already appears destined to set an attendance record.

Beginning at 9 a.m. ET on Thursday, season ticket holders were able to reserve up to eight tickets through Ticketmaster using an emailed code. During the same time, UK students have been able to pick up tickets at the Joe Craft Center Ticket Office with their student IDs. By 3:40 p.m., 22,189 tickets had been claimed, up more than 4,000 tickets from just three hours prior.

In perhaps the clearest sign yet of the enthusiasm injected into the UK fan base by the arrival of Mark Stoops, that number of 20,700 would set at all-time record for attendance at a UK football spring game. Attendance at the 1987 edition of the event was estimated at 20,235 in 1987. Even more remarkably, tickets don't become available to the general public until March 11 at 9 a.m.

Don't think coaches and players aren't taking notice.






In spite of unprecedented demand, there is still plenty of time to join in. If you are a season ticket holder, check your email to find the spring game code then obtain tickets in one of the following ways:

  • Online at TicketMaster.com, by clicking here.
  • By calling TicketMaster at 800-745-3000
  • In person at TicketMaster outlets in Kentucky
  • NOTE: Tickets are free but there is a small service charge per ticket
