Football Season Ticket Sales Strong in Early Signing Period
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Big Blue Nation appears energized for what projects to be an exciting 2020 season for Kentucky football.
Less than three weeks after UK Athletics announced ticket information for the 2020 season, more than 10,500 tickets have been renewed or purchased. That total includes nearly 550 new season tickets sold to fans who placed new season ticket deposits and existing season ticket holders.
Returning season tickets holders can still renew before the end of the Early Signing Period this Friday. Season ticket holders who renew during the Early Signing Period have access to exclusive pricing. After Friday, renewals will be available at standard pricing.
Renewals are available online through each season ticket holder’s My UK Account at UKathletics.UKcom/renew, while paper invoices will be mailed later this month.
Fans still have time to select their new season tickets and gain access to the best seating inventory before they go on sale to the general public by contacting the UK Ticket Office or clicking here to be contacted by a personal ticket rep.
New season tickets will go on sale Feb. 14, at which point fans will be able to browse the Kentucky Football Virtual Venue to view seats and work together with a personal ticket representative to compare and purchase available seat locations. Fans can gain priority access to the best seat locations prior to the public on-sale date and earn exclusive incentives by placing a $50 per seat deposit or by contacting the UK Sales Office at (800) 928-2287 (Option 1). Season parking permits, primarily in the newly created purple lots behind the east endzone, are also available to new purchasers for the 2020 season, while supplies last. Special season ticket discounts are available to regular, full-time University of Kentucky faculty and staff as well as K Club Varsity Letter Association members.
