LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Less than two weeks after a VRBO Citrus Bowl victory that capped the most successful season in four decades for Kentucky football, UK Athletics announced ticket information for the 2019 football season Friday.

The overall cost of season tickets and parking will be adjusted to reflect an eighth home game at Kroger Field this season, in addition to sales tax levied on event tickets by the state of Kentucky last year. K Fund donations will remain unchanged except for select upper-level seating areas where the donation has been reduced or eliminated altogether.

Renewing by Feb. 1 will provide the opportunity to receive eight home games for the price of seven.
