Today, UK sent out an email detailing changes to the gameday procedures at Kroger Field and two stuck out to me: they’re making more parking passes available to season ticket holders and letting fans help choose pregame music.
The parking situation at Kroger Field has been a major source of contention for the program’s loyalest fans in recent years. As a result, UK is making more parking spots available for season ticket holders in the lots and garages surrounding the stadium. From UKAthletics.com:
Parking permits are currently available in the Red Numbered Reserved and Green Numbered Reserved parking areas as well as the Blue VIP and Red VIP lots. A very limited number of standard parking permits are also available in select lots and garages, starting at $168.

Secondly, fans are getting a little more control over the music played during warmups. By downloading the RockBot app, fans will be able to pick songs from a pre-selected arrangement, which will then appear on the video board along with a “coming up” section. Hopefully that pre-selected arrangement doesn’t including “Cotton-Eyed Joe.”
Also of note: if you want an awesome tailgate setup but don’t want to put in the effort, UK Athletics is teaming up with Tailgate Guys, the leader in game day hospitality services nationwide, to offer fans turnkey, hassle-free tailgating for home football games.
