“To support regular campus operations and facilitate student pedestrian routes to and from class – which have been affected due to surrounding campus construction – space will be limited to fans wishing to line up ahead of time for tickets. Fans are highly encouraged to use Ticketmaster.com to obtain tickets, though UK Athletics cannot guarantee fans will receive tickets by lining up or going online.

A limited number of control cards will be issued to those camped out on Friday, Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. In a change from previous years, fans will receive a maximum of two tickets per control card Friday night. No more than four control cards will be distributed to each tent. Fans with control cards are encouraged to start lining up for Friday night’s ticket distribution by 8:30 p.m. All fans must be present to obtain their control cards and only one control card per person will be accepted at distribution.”

About the Camp Out:

At the request of campus public safety officials, fans wishing to line up ahead of time at Memorial Coliseum for ticket distribution are asked to do so no earlier than 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28. At that time, campers are expected to be courteous to their fellow Wildcat fans and use caution when crossing Avenue of Champions and Rose Street over to the Memorial Coliseum and Joe Craft Center blocks to occupy a spot in line. Public safety officials will be on site to aid and assist a safe move-in. Campers displaying unsafe/disorderly conduct risk being removed from the line.

To support regular campus operations and facilitate student pedestrian routes to and from class, this year’s camping area will be limited to the following areas:

  • The eastern portion of the main entrance of Memorial Coliseum
  • Along the east side of Memorial Coliseum and the Joe Craft Center
  • Along the east entrance of the main entry way of the Craft Center
  • In the Coliseum Lot
  • A designated section of the College View Lot
