UK Athletics Launches Kentucky Football Young Alumni Pass

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky and Experience (expapp.com), the award-winning fan experience technology company, introduced the Kentucky Football Young Alumni Pass this week.  Starting with the 2015 football season, Kentucky young alumni will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase a season pass to all eight of Kentucky Football’s home games with a subscription ticket that is 100 percent mobile.

The Kentucky Football Young Alumni Pass is on sale now and only $256 each.  Passes are viewable through Experience’s integration with the Kentucky Wildcats Gameday app. Young Alumni Pass holders will have a guaranteed seat to all home games, with seat location varying from game to game, giving pass holders the ability to view the season from a variety of vantage points. Pass holders will also receive certain season ticket holder benefits including priority access to post-season ticket allotments.

“Pass technology gives us an all new, creative way to reach our recent grads with an affordable and flexible mobile subscription for our eight UK home games this season,” said Nathan Schwake, UK’s associate athletics director for marketing and promotions. “We are confident this type of access will be popular and exciting for this group of young alumni, who really want to support their alma mater.”

Ben Ackerman, Experience president agreed, “This is a tremendous opportunity for recent University of Kentucky graduates to attend home games through the easy access Pass provides.  Pass was designed to meet the needs of millennials who embrace this type of flexible, fully mobile subscription admission to events.”
