Ticket information for UK Alumni game

UK will host the 2012 UK Alumni Charity Game at Rupp Arena at 2:00 pm ET on September 15, prior to the home football game against Western Kentucky. The game will feature only Wildcats currently playing professionally, so don’t expect to see that Anthony Davis/Dan Issel matchup you’ve been hoping for.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Aug. 31 at 10:00 am ET and all seats are reserved & priced at $100 for premium lower-level, $40 for lower-level and $20 for upper-level. Tickets can be purchased at the Rupp Arena box office, online at http://Ticketmaster.com, at any Ticketmaster Outlet or call 1-800-745-3000.

There is a four-ticket limit per person and all proceeds from the game will go to charity. Doors open at 11:00 am.

This is going to be a very fun day in Lexington.

    Would like to see a lineup before buying tickets. And $100 seems steep, especially considering turnout for the Pros/Villains game.

    William Braskey – Is that the official roster? or just your list of guys in the NBA?

    Will any Euro or China players be on the list?

    1. Is Kidd-Gilchrist not playing, or did you forget about him? I’m not being a smartass, I really don’t know…

    #2 it’s $100 for premium lower. I would assume that means the three rows around the floor and then the rest of lower is $40. So $40 is a fair price. It’s not $100 for all lower

    9) Understand it’s for charity. However, I paid a premium for seats at the Pro’s game, only to watch people from the upper level come down and sit next to me. I give plenty to charity outside of this, so if I buy tickets it’s purely for enjoyment. I’d rather pay $20 for the uppers, move down if availble, and continue to give to a charity I support.

    Not trying to start a fight here, please don’t sense any anger in my post. Just explaining my comment.

    I think the Pros game was on a Monday, that was the main reason for low ticket sales. I remember lower arena wasn’t even completely filled.
