Applications are being accepted for NCAA Final Four tickets through the University of Kentucky ticket office. Fans can go online to UKathletics.com/tickets for their Final Four ticket application.
UK sold out its NCAA required hotel allotment. K Fund members who bought tickets with hotel rooms before 4 p.m. Monday will be provided priority seating.
Fans can buy two lower-level tickets at face value ($280 a ticket) without a hotel. Ticket applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Some UK students have already won a lottery to get tickets, UK officials said.
The lottery to select 884 students was held last week, and winners were notified Saturday night. Students who won should have received an email from UK on Monday with the link to order their ticket online through the NCAA's partner, Veritix. The tickets, which are $25, are limited to one per student. The deadline to order is Wednesday at 5 p.m.
