LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Single-game ticket availability for Kentucky men’s basketball games will be offered this season through two public on-sale dates, the first of which will be Wednesday.
The first public on-sale date for single-game tickets will occur Wednesday at 5 p.m. and will include all nonconference games except Kansas. On the evening of Oct. 3, tickets will be available exclusively online at Ticketmaster.com or by calling Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000. The second on-sale date, slated for Nov. 20 at 5 p.m., will consist of all Southeastern Conference games as well as the Kansas game.
A limited number of premium floor and courtside single-game ticket options are available through the K Fund. For more information, contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300.
In addition to this season’s two on-sale dates, the UK Athletics Ticket Office, in conjunction with its partnership with Ticketmaster, will also enable its resale marketplace through Ticketmaster.com for all 20 men’s basketball home games, prior to the season tipping off. TicketExchange by Ticketmaster is the only official resale marketplace of UK Athletics. Season ticket holders may post tickets on a game-by-game basis in which they cannot attend through their My UK Account.
TicketExchange provides fans with reliable and convenient access to purchase tickets for games and sections that otherwise may be sold out or not yet available. Please note that tickets posted on Kentucky’s fan-to-fan resale marketplace may exceed face value.
Kentucky men’s basketball flex packs – which offer tickets to select home games – will also return for the 2018-19 season. Flex packs will be available first to football season ticket holders, exclusively online through My UK Account, on Oct. 9 at 9 a.m. After this priority on-sale date, men’s basketball flex packs will go on sale to the general public on Oct. 10 at 9 a.m. More information, including package details and pricing, will be posted online at UKathletics.com/tickets later this week.
New for the 2018-19 season, UK Athletics will offer group ticket pricing in the 200-level for select games. Group tickets are a great way to provide entertainment for clients and businesses, team-building activities, employee appreciation outings, birthdays, youth teams, school groups and civic organizations. To learn more about purchasing group tickets, email GroupTickets@uky.edu.
The new mobile student ticketing process, introduced at football games this fall, will also be in place at regular-season men’s basketball games this season. This new mobile system will allow students to both purchase and access tickets more easily using a mobile device, meaning they will no longer have to visit the UK Ticket Office or participate in lotteries to secure tickets.
During the season, students will be able to access their pass through the UK Athletics app, available for free download through the App Store and Android Marketplace. Pass purchasers will then be prompted to claim a mobile ticket during a designated window prior to each home game. For students who have already purchased a season pass, more information about the claim process will be made available online at UKStudentTix.com next week.
Single-game student tickets will be available for purchase through the UK Athletics app. Single-game inventory will be made up of tickets held for single-game sales and tickets unclaimed by season pass holders.
Tickets for the Blue-White Game at Rupp Arena on Oct. 21 are still available. Lower-level tickets are $10 – $15 and 200-level tickets are $5.
As always, UK Athletics encourages all fans to buy tickets to athletics events through Kentucky’s six authorized ticket outlets—the UK Ticket Office, Ticketmaster, ReplyBuy, FEVO, a visiting team ticket office and the Rupp Arena box office. Only tickets purchased directly from these six sources are guaranteed to be valid. For more information about Kentucky’s authorized sellers, visit UKathletics.com/TicketSecurity.
The Cats will tip off the 2018-19 season Oct. 12 with Big Blue Madness in Rupp Arena.
