Special football season ticket boxes arriving

To commemorate the inaugural season in The New CWS, UK Athletics has upped its season ticket delivery game.

This year, season tickets and parking passes have been mailed in special black boxes that should be arriving soon if they haven’t already for season ticket holders who ordered by July 8. Backstreet Boys member and big UK fan Kevin Richardson took notice when he got his.


Since the boxes are new, it’s important to pay close attention to their contents.

Underneath the top cover of the box is a rendering of The New CWS on game day and head coach Mark Stoops and Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart penned letters inside. Also included are the same booklets containing season tickets, parking passes and information about attending games.

Now, we want to be sure to point out the clear plastic case at the bottom of the boxes. These acrylic cases are designed as keepsakes to hold your tickets for the grand opening game. Tickets for the Sept. 5 grand opening are larger than normal tickets and made specially to fit in the acrylic holders. Hold on to both so you can remember the first game in a new era of Kentucky football for years to come.
