UK expecting 15 percent capacity in Rupp Arena, says KY Senator

While Kroger Field is operating at 20 percent capacity for Kentucky’s football games, Rupp Arena intends to reduce its capacity to 15 percent for Kentucky’s basketball games, according to one Kentucky state senator.

Damon Thayer made it public, saying a letter from University of Kentucky president Eli Capilouto revealed Rupp’s plans to allow only 15 percent fan attendance for the upcoming 2020-21 college basketball season.

“Apparently @KentuckyMBB is only allowing 15% capacity @RuppArena this season according to letter from @UKYpres,” Thayer wrote, followed by his personal feelings for the decision.

At 15 percent, a little over 3,000 fans will be allowed in the building. Rupp Arena’s remaining 2020 concert schedule only allows 15 percent attendance, so this was already expected.

    Pathetic. This is at least an opportunity to play in memorial again, but fans would like that too much for Mitch’s taste.

    They should just cancel the season since it will take new White House leadership to fix this mess.
