Construction will limit capacity of Commonwealth Stadium during Spring Game

Tickets to UK football’s Blue/White Spring Game will be free, though construction will limit the capacity of Commonwealth Stadium, UK Athletics announced in a press release Wednesday.

Capacity for the event, scheduled for April 26 at 3:30 p.m., will be approximately 42,500, according to the release. The south lower and south upper level sidelines will not be available to fans due to renovations.
The Spring Game attendance last season totaled 50,831 in head coach Mark Stoops’ first public team activity at Commonwealth Stadium. Last year, Commonwealth Stadium’s capacity was 67,606, though the renovations will shrink that number.
All tickets will be free, though a service fee may be attached. UK students can pick up tickets with their student IDs at 9 a.m. on March 10 at the Joe Craft Center ticket office.
Season-ticket holders will be able to pick up tickets during the same time, and tickets will be available to the general public starting at 9 a.m. on March 19, according to the release.
Lower level tickets will be reserved, while upper level tickets will be general admission.
