2021 Schedule Features Seven-Game Home Slate
LEXINGTON, Ky. – February 21, 2021
Coming off a fifth consecutive bowl trip and returning many of the contributors from a third straight bowl championship team, UK Athletics announced ticket information for the 2021 football season on Friday.
“We already feel the enthusiasm of our fans and players for the 2021 season,” said Mitch Barnhart, UK Director of Athletics. “The Big Blue Nation has played a huge role in helping the coaches and players build a program that has gone to five straight bowl games and won the last three. That passion and support are more important than ever as we anticipate the excitement of a new season in Kroger Field.”
Kentucky football is slated to play seven homes games this fall. The schedule includes SEC matchups against Missouri (Sept. 11), Florida (Oct. 2), LSU (Oct. 9) and Tennessee (Nov. 6). UK will also host nonconference foes Louisiana-Monroe (Sept. 4), Chattanooga (Sept. 18) and New Mexico State (Nov. 20).
All fans in the general seating bowl can lock in season tickets during the renewal campaign at the Early Signing Period price from 2020. In a continuing effort to create affordable options and provide opportunities for potential new season ticket holders, ticket prices in the 200-level corners will start at $199 for the 2021 season. UK will also offer a new price point in sections 11 and 14, where the associated K Fund donation will start at just $50 per seat. All season tickets in the premium seating areas (Loge Level, Woodford Reserve Club and Central Bank Field Club) will be priced at $500 per seat, with associated K Fund donations unchanged.
