After seeing an empty student section for the first two regular season games at Rupp Arena, now you have a chance to fill the Erupption Zone.
Rupp Arena is opening up the student section next week when the Cats take on Fort Wayne on November 22 and University of Illinois-Chicago on November 26.
Tickets are $10 and must be paid in cash. Â The line for tickets will begin five hours prior to tipoff outside of the Rupp Arena box office. Fans in line will receive a numbered wristband and must return to line, two hours prior to tip-off. Â Tickets will then go on sale 90 minutes prior to tip-off at the box office and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Just so we’re clear: this isn’t a punishment handed down to the students by UK Athletics for not filling the student section against Vermont and Utah Valley State. Â These tickets are available every year during holiday breaks and next weekend is Thanksgiving.
