Football Season Ticket, Parking Information Announced

LEXINGTON, Ky. – With Kentucky set for its second season in The New Commonwealth Stadium this fall, UK Athletics announced ticket and parking information for the 2016 season on Thursday.

Season tickets throughout the seating bowl for UK’s seven-game home schedule will be available for $280, reflecting the same average per-game ticket price of $40 as 2015. K Fund donations for the 2016 season will remain unchanged for the upcoming year. The majority of seats in the 200-level will again have no K Fund donation attached. Premium season tickets in the Suite Level, Loge Level, Woodford Reserve Club and Field Club will be priced at $320. Additionally, public season ticket packages in Sections 201-203 and 209-211 will be priced at $210, reflecting a new price point for fans to enjoy Kentucky football. Fans can view the new seating chart and various pricing levels here

Continuing to enhance the game-day experience for fans, UK will invest in adding permanent bench backs to the existing bleachers in the following sections, prior to the Sept. 3 home opener. These improvements will include all seats in Sections 1-2; 10-22; and 30-31 for the upcoming year. 

2015 season ticket holders may now renew online through their My UK Account. Paper invoices will be mailed to all season ticket holders in late February, with a renewal deadline of April 13.

Beginning in May, season ticket holders who have renewed their seats and are interested in changing seat locations for the 2016 season will have the opportunity to participate in Kentucky’s all new, optional seat upgrade process. Season ticket holders should opt-in now by checking the box on the back of their paper renewal invoice or answering the appropriate questions as part of the online renewal process. Those who opt-in will receive a seat selection appointment time in early May and will be able to browse the Virtual Venue and select upgraded seats from our entire inventory of available seats.

In addition to ticket information, parking prices for the 2016 season have also been released. There will be no overall reallocation of parking permits this year, and ticket holders will be able to renew the same permits they had during 2015. Annual K Fund donations have been added to most parking permits this year. These donations are tax deductible and will allow permit holders to accumulate additional K Fund points. As with all K Fund contributions, they allow us to provide scholarships, academic support, facilities and administrative support for over 500 student-athletes competing to win championships at UK. 

Season parking passes in the following lots will be priced at $280, along with a K Fund donation that varies by permit.

Glenn Hyundai Blue Lot – $300 K Fund donation
