    Are the tickets free? I think so, just wanting to confirm.

      Yes, if you get them at the gate, they will be free (online you’ll have to pay Ticketmaster fees).

    Can’t wait and hope we still have more at the game than Loserville with all their gimmicks..$1 beer, carnival rides, pics with Ncca trophy, basketball teams. We are going to be there for the love of UK and the excitement and hope for the football future.
