Home Game Individual Tickets
If you want to buy single game tickets please read the following disclaimer before you order tickets: Tickets are only available if the students do not pick up their whole allotment. We do not know until the sale dates that are listed whether or not we will have tickets. AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON ALL GAMES WILL BE LISTED. IF A GAME SELLS OUT DURING STUDENT DISTRIBUTION, IT WILL BE REMOVED BEFORE THE SALE DATE. Also, once you purchase tickets, there are NO REFUNDS or cancellations.
Single game basketball tickets for 2012-2013 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.
Individual home game ticket sales depend on student demand for each game. 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. 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. 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.
