Tickets to the Spring Game are on sale NOW

Tickets for the football spring game are now on sale through Ticketmaster. CLICK HERE to go get your seat for your first look at the Mark Stoops Era. Although the tickets are free, you will have to pay a $1.25 Ticketmaster service fee. If that’s not your style, then simply go up to the gate on the day of the game to get your free ticket.

Students can also go pick up two tickets per student ID starting this morning at the Joe Craft Center ticket office.

The presale is supposed to be for season ticket holders only, but a little birdie says that the promo code LOYALTY has been pretty lucky this morning…

UPDATE: As of 11:30 a.m., over 15,000 tickets have been “sold.” Who says Kentucky’s not a football school?

    Danny needs to quit being a jerk.. If he wants to complain about his service fee and everything that is wrong with UK he needs to get his own radio show because I don’t want to hear him. Someone needs to smck him and Matt needs to tell him to SHUT THE HELL UP..

    Season ticket holder! Horrible idea. Been on an automated system for a half hour. Would like to sit with the people I sit with every year in our section. This is not a service to season ticket holders. We should have been offered our exact seat. $12.80 fee is ridiculous. Anyone can use the password. This is a joke!

    Who is in Section 128 with me?



  19. LOYALT?
    10:58 am February 28, 2013 Permalink

    Seems like on my tickets it says loyalt even though I typed in loyalty?
    Anyone else have a problem with this?

    #18) I understand your point of view. If they are releasing to season ticket holders, and anyone can use the password it is unfair to you guys; then again it is just a practice.

    12k!Wow that’s more than have showed up for the last 3 Spring games combined. This will be my first spring game ever. Hope the weather is good.

    Matt has shown his arrogance by divulging the code for season ticket holders to the general public! Why shouldn’t we who have bought tickets for 40+ years have at least a day’s chance to get tickets for the spring game. Those who suddenly want to ‘get on the band wagon’ need to be patient and respectful, including MATT!!

    Cry Babies!!!! Stop being a bitch on here and get your tickets right now. Why do we even try. This is why we can’t have nice things. Jesus Christ.

    Four tickets for $10, lower level. Can’t wait!

    Any updates on how many sold so far?

    I’ve sat on the 35 yd line 10 rows up in 212 every year since the place opened; I’ll just walk up game day and go to my ‘regular’ seat.

    Is anyone else having problems choosing seats via TicketMaster? The only option I’m getting is “best available” which results in end zone tickets, nothing on the sidelines.

    Even with 15,000 pre-sold there surely must be sideline tickets available.

    Thoughts?

    #39 Do you really need me to let you borrow $1.50 to come support our Cats? That’s just sad…
    Got 4 tickets in Sec. 114 for like 8 bucks! Go BIG BLUE……….all day!

    Asshole move by Matt Jones and KSR by giving out the pass code to the general public. Way to take this opportunity away from the people who have been loyal to the program.

    I will be 65 on April 9, this will be my 1st time inside CS to see UK football, I just got 8 tickets in SEC 116, row 43. I think the crowd will be 40,000+ or greater!. I have never witnessed so much excitement for Kentucky Football and the new Neal Brown Air Raid Offense and Mark Stoops Defense!. Can’t wait to see Maxwell Smith play against Patrick Towels, with Whitlow running the “wildcat”. Even though its only a practice game, I look for the crowd to be very on fire!. LOVE that its a night game under the lights. And
    this is not with our BEST EVER class of new recruits who will be in come August. GO BIG BLUE!

    Over 28,000 tickets gone at 7:30! Already broke all prior Blue/White game attendence marks.
