It turns out winning 10 games and playing in a New Year’s Day bowl game has its perks.

The University of Kentucky announced Tuesday that its season-ticket renewals as of April 12 — the priority renewal deadline — were at 90 percent, up from a 79-percent rate in 2018. UK has sold about 3,000 new season-ticket packages this year, helping to already bring the current season tickets sales total to 98 percent of last year’s final total.

Season-ticket packages are still available at UKFootballTix.com. The Kentucky Football Pocket Pass — a mobile-only season ticket option with variable seating, but for a reduced price — is also available, as are four-game flex options.

Single-game tickets for UK’s eight home games will be available in the summer.
