Madness campout set for September 28-30

Tickets for this year’s Big Blue Madness will be distributed on Friday, September 30 at 10:00 pm. As always, those tickets are free and will be available at the Memorial Coliseum ticket windows on Avenue of Champions and online at

But let’s get to the details that really matter. Let’s talk about that campout.

Fans will be allowed to set up campsites at 5:00 am on Wednesday, September 28. UK has asked that campers follow these guidelines:

— No permanent, wooden-type structures

— No portable generators

— No propane tanks or other open flames

— Alcoholic beverages and tobacco products are not permitted

— Selling sports tickets in excess of face value is illegal in Kentucky

A limited number of control cards will be issued to campers at 2:00 pm on Friday afternoon. All fans must be present to obtain their control cards and only one control card per person will be accepted at distribution. Additionally, all people with control cards must be in line by 10:00 pm.

Also note: Space will be limited this year due to construction, therefore fans are encouraged to go the Ticketmaster route to obtain tickets. UK Athletics will inform fans once available camp space has reached capacity and they are unlikely to receive control cards for the in-person ticket distribution.

Parking and transportation information, along with further ticketing details, will be released at a later time.

Big Blue Madness is set for Friday, October 14 at 7:00 pm. It will be televised live on the SEC Network.

Go Cats.
