LEXINGTON, Ky. – With the 2019 priority renewal deadline passing earlier this month, Kentucky football season ticket sales are strong. More than four months to go before kickoff of the 2019 season, UK has already nearly matched its total sales from a season ago.

After the passing of the priority renewal deadline on April 12, 90% of 2018 season ticket holders have renewed their season tickets for 2019 – up from 79% at this point last year. With nearly 3,000 new season tickets sold, overall sales have reached 98% of last year’s final total.

Season tickets are still available at starting at $280 apiece. Fans are able to use the Kentucky Football Virtual Venue to view and compare available seat locations and experience a 360-degree virtual view from the seats inside Kroger Field. No-interest payment plans are available for new season ticket purchases. Additionally, the Kentucky Football Pocket Pass has returned for the 2019 season, which includes a mobile ticket to all eight home games. Pocket Passes are priced at $250 each, after selling the first 500 Passes at the introductory rate of $225.

A limited number of season parking permits have been made available to football season ticket holders for 2019. Parking structures are priced at $192 each, while parking lots are $320 each plus a per-permit K Fund donation that varies by lot. There is a limit of one season permit for every four season tickets purchased per account. Complete information is available here.
