UK Men’s Basketball Single-Game Ticket Information

Early season games available for single-game purchase starting Wednesday evening

LEXINGTON – October 18, 2022

Single-game tickets for Kentucky men’s basketball games will be offered this season through multiple public on-sale dates, the first of which will begin Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET. 


The first public on-sale date for single-game tickets will include Kentucky’s first nine home games. Tickets will be available exclusively online at or through the Ticketmaster app. Tickets for Kentucky’s final 11 home games, including all Southeastern Conference games and matchups with Louisville and Kansas, will go on sale at a later date to be determined, based on availability. 

Fans are reminded that single-game inventory for Kentucky basketball games is limited, as a majority of tickets are sold as season ticket packages or held as part of the student allotment. Additional ticket inventory from the student allotment may be released to the public at a later date.

A limited number of premium floor and courtside single-game ticket options are available through the K Fund. For more information, contact the K Fund at (859) 257-6300. 

Information on student tickets for regular-season games is also now available at, including how and when season pass holders can claim tickets for each game, as well as how and when students can purchase single-game tickets. The student claim and purchase period for the first four home games begins this week. 


In addition to the public on-sales, the UK Athletics Ticket Office, in conjunction with its partnership with Ticketmaster, will also enable its online resale marketplace this week for all 20 men’s basketball home games.

Ticketmaster’s resale marketplace is completely integrated with UK Athletics’ ticketing system and uses barcode verification technology to ensure the authenticity of all tickets. As the official fan-to-fan marketplace of Big Blue Nation, Ticketmaster provides fans with reliable and convenient access to purchase tickets for games and sections that otherwise may be sold out as well as post verified tickets for sale. Please note that tickets posted on Kentucky’s resale marketplace may exceed face value.  

All tickets purchased directly through Kentucky’s official ticket outlets — the UK Ticket Office, Ticketmaster, FEVO, the visiting team ticket office and the Rupp Arena box office — are guaranteed to be valid. UK Athletics cautions against purchasing tickets through other outlets that may be unable to provide this assurance. UK Athletics strives to provide fans with a ticketing experience that is convenient, safe and secure.  

All tickets will be mobile, and season ticket holders and individual game buyers will use the UK Athletics App to access and manage tickets. New this year for basketball, SafeTix™ will be implemented as an additional feature on mobile tickets. To fight fraud, Ticketmaster launched SafeTix™, which uses an encrypted barcode that automatically refreshes every 15 seconds, or a tap-and-go ticket stored in a fan’s digital wallet. The process for accessing mobile tickets has not changed; however, with SafeTix™, screenshots or recordings of tickets will no longer work for entry. Fans may still transfer tickets through their accounts or the UK Athletics App. For more information, helpful tips, and FAQs, visit
