Second Public Single-Game Ticket Window Opens Tuesday

LEXINGTON, Ky. – The second public on-sale date for Kentucky men’s basketball single-game tickets will occur Tuesday at 5 p.m. and will include all Southeastern Conference games as well as the Kansas game. Starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, tickets will be available exclusively online at or by calling Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000.

A limited number of premium floor and courtside single-game ticket options are available through the K Fund. For more information, contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300.

Also, tickets for the eRUPPtion Zone, UK’s standing-room only student section, will be made available to the public for the Winthrop (Wednesday) and Tennessee State (Friday) games, which fall during the University of Kentucky’s Thanksgiving Break.

Fans will be allowed to start lining up for eRUPPtion Zone ticket sales beginning five hours prior to tipoff outside of the Rupp Arena box office. Fans in line will receive a numbered wristband and must return to line, two hours prior to tip-off. Tickets will then go on sale 90 minutes prior to tipoff at the Rupp Arena box office and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets in the eRUPPtion Zone are $15 each (cash only) and are limited to one per person (must be present at time of purchase).

In addition to this season’s two single-game on-sale dates, the UK Athletics Ticket Office, in conjunction with its partnership with Ticketmaster, has enabled its resale marketplace through for all 20 men’s basketball home games. TicketExchange by Ticketmaster is the only official resale marketplace of UK Athletics. Season ticket holders may post tickets on a game-by-game basis in which they cannot attend through their My UK Account.

TicketExchange provides fans with reliable and convenient access to purchase tickets for games and sections that otherwise may be sold out or unavailable. Please note that tickets posted on Kentucky’s fan-to-fan resale marketplace may exceed face value.

New for the 2018-19 season, UK Athletics will offer group ticket pricing in the 200-level for select games. Group tickets are a great way to provide entertainment for clients and businesses, team-building activities, employee appreciation outings, birthdays, youth teams, school groups and civic organizations.
