LEXINGTON, Ky. – Tickets for the Kentucky men’s basketball Blue-White Game go on sale Sept. 24 at 5 p.m. ET. The annual exhibition is scheduled for Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. in Rupp Arena. The game will be televised by the SEC Network.
On Monday at 5 p.m., tickets will be available online through Ticketmaster.com or by calling Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000. The cost of the tickets will be $15 (lower-level sideline), $10 (lower-level corner and end court) and $5 (200 level). All public seating is reserved.
Beginning Sept. 25 at 9 a.m., UK students may claim up to two free eRUPPtion Zone tickets for the Blue-White Game, while supplies last. Student tickets may be claimed in person at the Joe Craft Center ticket office with a valid UK student ID. Students interested in reserved seating may purchase through the public process explained above.
Students attending the game will also have an opportunity to win in-state tuition. For the sixth year in a row, head coach John Calipari will pay the 2019 spring semester in-state tuition for two lucky Kentucky students who attend the Blue-White Game.
Similar to the past three years, UK students will check into the Blue-White Game via the BBN Rewards app. Students who check in at the Blue-White Game with a fully completed profile, including their student ID number, will be eligible to win. Students are also encouraged to enable notifications on the app to receive news about exclusive experiences, coupons and other important updates.
The app, which is available for download on Apple and Android devices, allows UK students to earn a variety of rewards for attending various UK Athletics events. Students will accumulate points by checking in when they arrive at UK Athletics events using the “Events” button on the app. As students accumulate points, awards will automatically unlock. The winners will be randomly selected and announced at the completion of the game. They must be present to win. Prior points earned through BBN Rewards will not factor into this drawing. In the event of an out-of-state or graduate/professional student winner, the spring semester in-state undergraduate tuition amount will be applied.
Calipari started the scholarship tradition at UK during the 2013-14 season, but previously did it during his days at UMass.
