Athletic Ticket Opportunities

The UK Alumni Association occasionally has tickets available to UK basketball, football and Olympic sports contests for dues-paying members of the association. The tickets available will depend on the demand for a particular game and the time of year when you try to order tickets. Orders are usually filled on a first-come, first-served basis.


2015 UK Football Tickets
UK Football Tickets are available for purchase through the online form. Seat location is not known until the tickets are received from the UK Ticket Office. As a member benefit, association members are eligible to purchase up to two tickets per game on a first come, first serve basis. If additional tickets are desired, members may fill out the online waitlist form and if tickets become available, members who submitted the wait list form will be notified via email.

2015 UK Olympic Sport Tickets
The UK Alumni Association provides to members complimentary tickets for the following UK Olympic sports: volleyball, baseball, gymnastics and women’s basketball. Any notices about ticket availability will probably be delivered by e-mail only, so be sure that you provide us with your correct e-mail address.

2015-16 UK Men’s Basketball Regular Season Game Tickets
If tickets are available, additional information and a link to an online Order Form will be here. Tickets will probably go on sale on September 1, or within a few days, for the Rupp Arena home games and a few away games at neutral sites. A confirmed date will be provided at this site when it is known. Advance notice regarding the availability of these tickets is not distributed to members. You are encouraged to check this website for information. However, some of the association’s geographical alumni clubs receive allotments of tickets and send email notices when they are available. As a member benefit, the association attempts to provide two (2) Rupp Arena tickets per member annually. The association does not receive any tickets for SEC away games. The Rupp Arena tickets are usually located in sections 36, 37, 39 or 40. Seat locations for the neutral site games are not known until the tickets are received from the UK Ticket Office.

We welcome your feedback and encourage you to contact us at if you have any questions or concerns regarding the ticket opportunities.

If sufficient evidence is received by the UK Athletics Association that tickets assigned to you were sold for greater than the face value of the ticket, even if criminal charges are not filed against you, the UK Alumni Association, your local club, and you as an individual may permanently lose the privilege to purchase those and other tickets in future years. If any tickets assigned to you have been posted on any Internet ticket broker site or sold without your approval please contact those individuals.
