- Purchase Here

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.  **Please note that we do NOT expect to have any public tickets to sell for the North Carolina 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 5:00 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 5:00 pm sale, they typically sell out very quickly and are not available the following morning, so we suggest placing your order at 5:00 pm through Ticketmaster.

Season Ticket Renewals

Season ticket renewals for basketball are mailed in August each year. The deadline for season ticket renewals is September 3, 2014. If you have not received a renewal by the third week of August please call the ticket office.  For the 2014-2015 season, lower level tickets are $945 each, and upper level tickets are $840 each.  There are 21 home games included in the 2014-2015 season ticket package.  Ticket prices for each game within the package will vary this season.

Season Ticket Lottery

Contrary to popular belief, there is no waiting list for season tickets, and we have a lottery system in place.  The number of season tickets available in the lottery each year depends on the number of non-renewed season tickets from previous year.  Due to the extremely high renewal rate of basketball season tickets, only a limited number of upper level seats are available each year in the lottery.  If you would like to enter your name into the basketball ticket lottery for season tickets, send your name, address, daytime telephone number(s), and email address on a postcard to:

UK Basketball Ticket Lottery
Room A-113 Joe Craft Center
338 Lexington Avenue
Lexington, KY 40506-0604

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.  Men's basketball season ticket holders can submit a request for the CBS Sports Classic (vs. UCLA, 12/20/14 in Chicago) until the August 8th deadline.  Requests for tickets to the Champions Classic (vs. Kansas, 11/18/14 in Indy) may be submitted until the September 24th deadline.   UK will not have a public sale for either of these two special events.

Faculty/Staff Ticket Availability

The University of Kentucky Staff Senate, in conjunction with UK Athletics, is pleased to offer full-time UK faculty and staff the opportunity to purchase tickets to UK Men's Basketball home games prior to the tickets being released for sale to the general public.  Ticket prices are listed in the table above.

Following each UK student ticket distribution for men's basketball games, full-time UK faculty and staff will have the opportunity to purchase unclaimed student tickets, if available. Tickets will be available from noon until 4:00 pm on that day only and may be purchased at the UK Ticket Office in the Joe Craft Center. No phone orders will be accepted and ticket limits may apply based on availability. Each full-time faculty/staff member will need to present a valid UK Wildcard Employee ID.  Note: if the students sell out of their ticket allotment, there will be NO faculty/staff tickets available to sell.  **Please note that we do NOT expect to have any tickets to sell for the North Carolina game.
