Ticket sales bouncing back

Kentucky already has sold more season tickets (39,469) this season than all of last season (38,475), but the numbers still haven’t bounced back completely, still down more than 16,000 from the height of season ticket sales in 2009 when the school reported 56,440.

A couple of other ticket-related notes:

  • Student tickets go on sale Tuesday at 9 a.m. and are $35 each. The student ticket web site has updated info: http://www.ukathletics.com/tickets/student-tickets.html
  • Regular season tickets are still available for sideline ($277) and end zone ($242) and can be purchased at www.UKathletics.com/tickets, call 800-928-2287 or by visiting the Joe Craft Center Ticket Office.
  • Officials also reported there still are tickets for the season opener against Western Kentucky at LP Field in Nashville, but they stressed it’s important to buy through the school if fans want to sit in the designated UK sections. The WKU tickets are club ($63), lower sideline ($43) and end zone ($38).

    Looks like even the most faithful figure the upcoming season won’t be real pretty for the Cats. But they can’t feel otherwise based on continuing comments from the new staff and media. But the ones who just love the sport will miss seeing some of the nation’s top teams that’ll come to CWS this year.

    It would certainly help team spirit and further recruiting though if fans would lend strong attendance support this season. Seems that 50+K spring attendance was a great sales pitch in recent recruiting.

    By Barker’s senior season he won’t need to be recruiting WRs; they’ll be knocking at UK’s door by then.
