Kroger Field continues to get better. Installation is underway to add bench backs to the North upper level, the latest upgrade in a series of renovations to Kentucky Football’s home.
Bench backs will be added to all seats in sections 201-203 and 209-211 that did not previously have bench backs. In total, nearly 5,000 seats will be affected by the project, which started in early May and will be completed prior to the start of the 2019 season. UK Athletics has now reached its goal of installing bench-back or chair-back seating throughout Kroger Field, with the exception of the student section, where bleachers will remain to accommodate as many students as possible.
More good news: even though bench backs are being added to the North upper level, season and single-game ticket prices in the affected areas will remain the same. Season tickets are now available at UKFootballTix.com. Single game tickets will go on sale later this summer.
Following a banner year for the program, season ticket sales are strong, with 90% of 2018 season ticket holders renewing soon after the priority renewal deadline on April 12. With nearly 3,000 new season tickets sold, overall sales have reached 98% of last year’s final total as of April 23.
Go Cats. Go Krogering.
