Kentucky football season ticket sales surpass last season. Here are the numbers.

Winning is translating into ticket sales for the University of Kentucky football program.

Coming off a 10-3 season in 2018 that culminated in a Citrus Bowl victory over Penn State on New Year’s Day, Kentucky’s season ticket sales for 2019 have already surpassed the total for all of last season, the school announced.

As of Thursday, Kentucky has sold 30,612 season tickets, up from the 30,212 sold in 2018. Included in that total are 3,470 new season tickets and sales of Pocket Passes, UK’s digital-only ticket package.

Season tickets, starting at $280 apiece, are still available at

Fans may use an online “virtual venue” to view and compare available seat locations and experience a 360-degree virtual view from the seats at Kroger Field.

The first 500 Pocket Passes, which include a mobile ticket to all eight home games, were sold at $225 each. Remaining Pocket Passes will be sold at $250 each.

Call the UK Sales Office at (800) 928-2287 or visit their website for additional information and payment options and for details about season parking permits.

As the UK football team continues to improve, with three consecutive winning seasons, upgrades continue at Kroger Field. Installation is underway on 5,000 new bench-back seats in the North upper level, which will be ready in time for the 2019 season.

In addition to full season tickets, UK has also sold 501 four-game “flex packs” since those went on sale last month. Flex packs allow fans flexibility in game choices, seating and pricing.

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

Tickets for Kentucky’s 2019 road games are also on sale now, and will be delivered separately from season ticket packages. Away game tickets include Mississippi State on Sept. 21 ($65), South Carolina on Sept. 28 ($60), Georgia on Oct. 19 ($80) and Vanderbilt on Nov. 16 ($55).
