UK students to bypass ticket lottery, tickets go mobile

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - UK students will no longer have to endure student ticket lotteries or keep up with paper tickets for athletic events.

UK Athletics is implementing mobile student ticketing for football and men’s basketball games this season, they announced Wednesday.

Students will not have to visit the UK Ticket Office or participate in lotteries to obtain tickets for these sporting events. Students will now be able to buy and use their tickets using the UK Athletics app.

“Our goals in implementing this new system are to modernize our student ticketing process and use technology to make it as easy as possible for our students to purchase tickets and attend games,” UK Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said.

UK Athletics will offer a variety of season and single-game packages for students to purchase their mobile tickets.

The cost for single-game tickets to football and men’s basketball games will remain $10. Admission to all other sporting events will remain free.
