What you need to know to attend home games this fall in Kroger Field

Kentucky announced there will be 20% capacity inside Kroger Field this fall, bringing the amount of tickets to around 12,000 fans.

There are plenty of new rules and regulations that are being put in place to help fans socially distance while still watching Kentucky win every home game this season.

Masks required, no tailgating in the parking lots, and select gates to enter/exit from based on your tickets are some of the new changes you'll be seeing.

Some of the major game changes sent out by UK Athletics are:

  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures throughout the stadium prior to and during all events

  • Mobile ticketing and parking passes to reduce contact between staff and fans

  • Requiring face coverings for all fans at all times, with the exception of when fans are sitting in their seats while eating or drinking

  • Suggesting that fans to enter and exit at specified gates

  • Requiring fans to keep the proper physical distance

  • Providing signage in common areas to assist with physical distancing

  • Hand sanitization and washing stations located throughout the stadium

  • Increased physical spacing while using elevators by reducing capacity of each elevator to three persons

  • Concessions featuring cashless transactions

  • Parking lots to open three hours prior to kickoff

  • No gatherings in parking lots prior to the game

  • No tailgating, generators, trailers, tents, grills or cooking of any kind will be allowed in parking lots this season

  • Gates will open two hours prior to kickoff

  • Anyone around the stadium on gameday will be expected to have a ticket or credential for that day's game

  • No RVs will be permitted in the parking lots

  • The bringing of bags of any sort are strongly discouraged and only small, clear bags will be admitted

UK announced that the suite and Lexus Loge seating will remain as a season ticket, and those account holders will be contacted directly by the K Fund Office to confirm their intentions for the 2020 season. "Suites will be limited to a maximum of 10 persons or 20 percent, whichever is greater."

All current season ticket holders will have the ability to renew their original seat locations and parking for the 2021 season, regardless of their choice in attending games this fall.

More news will be released on the official UK Football website in the following days.
