It's starting to look like Kentucky games will have some fans this fall/winter

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

A report came out this morning by Kentucky Sports Radio that UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart has been contacting donors to discuss possible scenarios involving fan capacity this fall at Kroger Field and this winter at Rupp Arena.


The plan seems to be starting out at a 50% capacity rate for fans, which is still unknown has those fans will be selected. First come first serve, season ticket holders, there are plenty of different options that could happen, with each seemingly having cons that come with them. If fans can just buy them online until they sell out, season ticket holders who haven't missed a home game in 20+ years aren't going to be too happy. If just the season ticket holders get to attend, then you lose the grip of the average fan, who might not bet able to afford as many games as others.


Each route, once its announced, will surely upset some section of the fanbase and I don't see any likely scenario being perfect, but I think we can all agree that we just want sports back. UK Athletics hasn't released an official statement on what they're planning to do just yet, but there will likely be one in the near future.


Players have since returned to campus for voluntary individual workouts, with summer activities for the football team officially beginning on July 13th and the men's basketball team starting on July 20th.
