Home Game Individual Tickets
Single game ticket availability is always based on whether or not the student ticket allotment sells out. We will not know whether or not single game tickets will be available until the sale dates listed below. At the beginning of the season, all games and potential sale dates will be listed. If a game sells out during student distribution, there will be no tickets available to sell to the general public.
Single game basketball tickets for 2013-2014 are $50.00 each for lower arena and $42.00 each for upper arena. As part of the season ticket package, lower arena tickets are $45.00 each, and upper arena tickets are $40.00 each. There are 20 home games included in the season ticket package.
If tickets are available after the student distribution, they will FIRST go on sale to the general public ONLINE through Ticketmaster.com on the following dates. If tickets still remain following a 6:00 pm online sale, we will then accept phone and walk-up orders at the Joe Craft Center ticket office the following morning. For high demand games, if we have any tickets to release for a 6:00 pm sale, they typically sell out very quickly and are not available the following morning, so we suggest placing your order at 6:00 pm through Ticketmaster.

Season Ticket Renewals
Season Ticket Lottery
UK Basketball Ticket Lottery
Drawings are held the second week of October through the first week of November for two (2) upper level seats. You will be notified only if your name is drawn. Limit one entry per person. You must be at least 18 years old to purchase season tickets. We do not notify people who are not drawn. You will need to resend your request each year until you are drawn, as names that are not drawn for the present year are discarded after the lottery is over. If you are a regular, full-time faculty/staff member at the University of Kentucky, we hold a separate lottery before the public ticket lottery each year. Please send a postcard following the same directions above, and indicate "UK Faculty/Staff" on your postcard. Eligible UK Faculty/Staff receive a 20% discount on two season tickets if they are drawn in the lottery.
Season ticket prices are determined by multiplying the number of HOME games that season times the cost of the tickets.
Away Games and Special Events
Away game tickets are not available through our office. Fans should contact the school we are playing for away game tickets. Tickets for the UK vs. Providence game at Barclay's Center are available here, and tickets for the UK vs. Baylor doubleheader at Cowboys Stadium are available here.
