The Kentucky Wildcats have announced the ticket, date and time for the 2016 UK Football Blue-White Spring Game.

The game, which annually gives fans a chance to see their football Cats in action for the first time, has been set for Saturday, April 16 at noon at Commonwealth Stadium and will be a ticketed event. This will be the first time this year we get a look at guys like QB Drew Barker, WR Dorian Baker, RB Boom Williams and other Wildcats to see how much they've grown this offseason.

It's also the first time we'll see newcomers like QB Stephen Johnson, LB Kash Daniel, QB Gunnar Hoak and OL Tate Leavitt among others.

Seating in the lower level will be reserved, and seating in the upper level (200-level sections) will be general admission. The north upper-level general admission area (sections 201-211) will be open. The south upper-level general admission area (sections 221-231) will be open based upon demand.

A special availability for football season ticket holders for the free tickets will begin Monday, March 7, at 9 a.m.  Current season ticket holders will receive an email this week detailing how they may obtain up to eight tickets:

  • Online at
  • By calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000
  • In person at Ticketmaster outlets in Kentucky
  • Tickets are free but there is a small service charge per ticket

UK students may obtain free tickets beginning Monday, March 7, at 9 a.m. at the Joe Craft Center ticket office. Students may pick up two tickets per ID.

Remaining tickets will be available to the general public through the same Ticketmaster channels beginning Monday, March 14 at 9 a.m.

Tickets still available on game day (April 16) may be picked up free of charge at the stadium ticket office, based on availability. The April 16 event marks Kentucky's first spring football game since 2014 and the first in Commonwealth Stadium after its $126 million renovation.
