LEXINGTON, Ky. – With football season just a few short months away, ESPN has announced the first three weeks of its 2019 college football slate.

 

The Wildcats open the 2019 season with three straight home games and look to use the momentum created last year from their win over Penn State in the VRBO Citrus Bowl. The 10-3 record was Kentucky’s best season in 41 years and only the third 10-win season in school history.  UK finished No. 11 in the final USA Today coaches’ poll and No. 12 in the final Associated Press tabulation, the school’s first appearance in the final rankings since 1984.

 

Kentucky’s 2019 schedule begins with first-time opponent Toledo on Saturday, Aug. 31 at Noon ET on the SEC Network. The following week, Eastern Michigan returns to Lexington (Sept. 7) for a 7:30 p.m. ET start on ESPNU or the SEC Network Alternate. The three-game home stand will conclude with the conference opener vs. the Florida Gators on Sept. 14 in Kroger Field. That highly-anticipated matchup is set to air at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, the only conference game in the prime time window.

 

Season tickets are available at UKFootballTix.com  starting at $280 apiece. Fans are able to use the Kentucky Football Virtual Venue to view and compare available seat locations and experience a 360-degree virtual view from the seats inside Kroger Field. No-interest payment plans are available for new season ticket purchases. Additionally, the Kentucky Football Pocket Pass  has returned for the 2019 season, which includes a mobile ticket to all eight home games. Pocket Passes are priced at $250 each, after selling the first 500 Passes at the introductory rate of $225.

To learn more about available season ticket locations, benefits (PDF)  and payment options, contact the UK Sales Office at (800) 928-2287 (Option 1) or click here to request a phone call from a personal representative.

Popular 4-Game Flex Packs went on sale in April, providing flexible game selection and pricing that enables fans to customize a plan to best fit their needs. Pricing depends on games and seating locations selected. A complete seating chart with pricing can be found here.

Single-game tickets to UK’s home games will go on sale later this summer.
