Mitch Barnhart, Eli Capilouto, and Lexington mayor Jim Gray just held a press conference to discuss the game day changes at Commonwealth Stadium for this season due to the ongoing construction. They sent out a lengthy release detailing everything you need to know, but it can really be summed up in three words: GET THERE EARLY.
Many season-ticket holders have been reassigned to new lots this season, so be sure to check the parking map to make sure you’re going to the right place to get your tailgate on. PLEASE display your parking pass on your dash so traffic personnel can quickly point you in the right direction. Parking lots will open at 8 a.m., which sounds really, really early, but Ryan, Jared, Donte Key and I will be making the rounds for the KSR Pregame Show starting at 8:30 a.m., so you’ll be in good company.
Also, Gates 10 and 11 will be closed the entire season, so fans entering through the South side of the stadium need to use Gates 7, 9, 12, and 14. Ladies, if you’re bringing a bag, make sure it’s no larger than 13.5″ x 10″ x 7″. Or wear a skirt with pockets.
