UK announces “fan experience enhancements” for game day and they include FREE WATER!


UK is doing their best to improve the gameday atmosphere at Commonwealth Stadium, and this morning, sent out a release detailing all of the “fan experience enhancements” in place for tomorrow’s game against UT-Martin. It’s a LONG list, but here are some of the highlights

  • Fans’ choice in music: UK is partnering with four local radio stations to allow fans to vote on songs from four genres–hip hop, pop, rock, and country. The vote’s been going on all week, and the winning songs will be played during timeouts. If you haven’t checked out the list yet, I encourage you to do so. Some of the options are…interesting. I’ll leave it at that.
  • Players’ choice in music: Earlier this summer, eight UK players chose songs they want to hear right before kickoff and fans voted for their favorites. Tomorrow, you’ll hear Braylon Heard’s choice of “Who Run It” before the the Cats run it back for a touchdown (hopefully).
  • They can play songs and videos between downs now: The SEC changed the rules to allow video, audio and music to be played between downs, which hopefully means we’ll see Za’Darius Smith leading the crowd in some chants on the jumbotrons.
  • The mysterious pre-fourth quarter tradition: UK will unveil a new tradition for the break between the third and fourth quarter tomorrow. What will it be? Randall Cobb leading the crowd in the CATS chant? Please???
  • In-game score updates — Game scores from across the country will be played on a continuous loop on the ribbon boards during the game so you won’t miss a thing.
  • FREE WATER! — Complimentary 10-ounce cups of water will be available to fans at stadium concession stands this season. That means you have no excuse not to rehydrate from your pregame tailgating festivities.

Go Cats. Go free water.

    You know what would be really cool? Water bottle filling stations that wouldn’t require going through lines at the concession stand.

      To “…”

      Water filling stations could actually be cheaper than paying people to fill free water up for fans. They’re easy to maintain, no complimentary cups would need to be provided (aka purchased by the UK AD), and you could put less in the stadium rather than paying someone at every vendor location to give free water.

      Like News Flash said, prices are going up, but actually water stations could actually be a cheaper option. But you go on continuing to be short-sighted.

    You expect me to drink water that’s been filled a couple feet away from an active construction site?

    It might say water but it’s actually Coors Light. They’re basically the same thing

    Fans choice in music? Great that’s all we need a bunch of shitty country music, and if we do get some rock all these backwards skanks will probably pick Nickelback
