60,000 total tickets distributed for the spring game

The final numbers on the spring game ticket distribution have finally arrived. According to the Courier-Journal, the University of Kentucky sold 49,000 public tickets, while another 11,000 were handed out to area public-school children. The area middle school and elementary school tickets were used as incentives in class to earn 1 of those 11,000 tickets.

To put things into perspective, Georgia had 45,113 in attendance for its spring game this year. Kentucky couldĀ beat that. Now, theĀ stadium may not be filled with exactly 60,000 people, as some bought large chunks of tickets and might not use them– but the numbers are very good for Mark Stoops’ first spring game. The excitement surrounding the football program is palpable and tomorrow will be a great way to keep the momentum rolling.

    I know it’s tough to gage how excited to be for just a spring game especially for fans not going but understand this, tomorrow everything we have been working for begins and no matter the outcome BACK THIS TEAM! It will pay of dividends through the fall and get boost with basketball and we fully support UK athletics with humble opinion of other program amongst our great successes in all sports. The brand new excitment around the football program is unlike anything around here in a long time, and we’ve all protected our pride from football but I promise you becoming truly proud of Mark Stoops and Neal Brown’s brainchild is going to lead to vast achievements. Basketball is our everything but we have so much passion we can let it pour over greatly to football and baseball and women’s sports. Thank God for our state of the program.

    i think we are setting ourselves up for disappointment when we throw out 60,000 as a number. i only bought 2 tickets and am going, but i talked to many people who bought the full 8 online and couldn’t give the rest away. i bet we see 25,000 there. that will still be a success.

    LOL. You have to give away your tickets. We sell ours for 12-18 bucks each and still get 60,000 people to attend. Who is sponsoring your spring game?

    When I talked with the ticket office today, they informed me that over 50,000 tickets had been ‘sold’ – nothing about giving any out.

    #11 – Lots of schools give away tickets. Apparently tattoos and cars, too. Seriously, there’s a really bad douchebag element to OSU. Go address it and report back to us.
