UK Warns Against Fraudulent Tickets

Feb. 4, 2010

LEXINGTON, KY – The University of Kentucky Athletics Department reminds all fans to exercise caution when buying tickets to athletics events from a third-party source outside of the UK Ticket Office or Ticketmaster.

At several recent basketball games, a number of fans have been denied entry after unknowingly purchasing altered tickets through third party websites.  Altered tickets are not valid for admission into Rupp Arena.

Unless a ticket is purchased through the UK Ticket Office or Ticketmaster, it cannot be guaranteed to be valid and admission to the event could be denied.
