Erupption Zone Tickets will be Available to the General Public for Two Games


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.  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.  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.  These tickets are available every year during holiday breaks and next weekend is Thanksgiving.

    Good. I wish I was closer so I could stand in line and scoop some up. UK students now have no idea just how good they’ve got it. Crap games, who cares. All I care about is the team in Blue. Tired of the excuses from the students about tuition and bad competition. They’ll wish they hadn’t turned down the chance 5 years from now, trust me. I miss those days when pocket change I would have otherwise spent on beer could get me in to see the Boys in Blue. Now I have to make an 8 hour trip and spend hundreds to see a game in Rapp.

    I’m with you NcCatFan75 I wish I could get tickets for less than a couple cups of coffee from Starbucks I live in western ky and have only make it to one game at Rupp in my life if given the opportunity I would never miss a game seats in the Erupption Zone come on give me the opportunity if I didn’t have to work for a living I’d be in the Zone every game

    Nick, you simpleton…took the easy way out instead of doing research. They do this almost every year during Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks when students leave. C’mon bro.
