The Univerisity of Kentucky has officially announced its plans for allowed capacity at home football games this coming fall.

According to the press release sent out by UK Athletics, general seating will be reduced to 20%, while allowing 10 people per suite. Also in accordance with CDC guidelines, UK will be taking extra safety measures that are listed below:

  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures throughout the stadium prior to and during all events
  • Mobile ticketing and parking passes to reduce contact between staff and fans
  • Requiring face coverings for all fans at all times, with the exception of when fans are sitting in their seats while eating or drinking
  • Suggesting that fans to enter and exit at specified gates
  • Requiring fans to keep the proper physical distance
  • Providing signage in common areas to assist with physical distancing
  • Hand sanitization and washing stations located throughout the stadium
  • Increased physical spacing while using elevators by reducing capacity of each elevator to three persons
  • Concessions featuring cashless transactions
  • Parking lots to open three hours prior to kickoff
  • No gatherings in parking lots prior to the game
  • No tailgating, generators, trailers, tents, grills or cooking of any kind will be allowed in parking lots this season
  • Gates will open two hours prior to kickoff
  • Anyone around the stadium on gameday will be expected to have a ticket or credential for that day’s game
  • No RVs will be permitted in the parking lots
  • The bringing of bags of any sort are strongly discouraged and only small, clear bags will be admitted

Still, the university has not announced a plan for student tickets, and those who have season tickets this season will have them rolled on to next season as tickets will be sold game-by-game. Fans that are attending the events will have to follow the extra safety measures put in by UK in an effort to safely have somewhat of a gameday environment.
