We now have more information about the University of Kentucky’s plan for arena capacity moving forward.

With about a month remaining until the opening of the basketball season, season ticket holders now have more information about what to expect.

The University of Kentucky sent out an email to season ticket holders. Here are a few notes from that email.

Significant reduction in capacity at both Rupp Arena and Memorial Coliseum to allow for physically distanced seating blocks spaced throughout the venue.

Additional physical distance requirements to create clear separation between the court/floor area and spectator seating.

Masks will be required to be worn at all times, including while seated in the bowl, except when actively eating or drinking.

All tickets will be issued via mobile delivery and accessed via smartphone

Details are still unclear about the process of how season ticket holders will acquire tickets and who will get what seats. As of now, ticket holders wishing to renew are asked to fill out a survey, while it seems that season ticket holders who do not plan on attending games this season will not lose their seats moving forward.

“It is important to know that all 2019-2020 season ticket holders will have the ability to renew their previously established seating locations for the 2021-2022 season, regardless of whether or not they receive tickets this year,” the letter reads in part. “Opting out will not affect any future seating priority, as your loyalty is important to us. We will also share further details soon about how you can continue to support your favorite teams and our 500+ student-athletes during these unprecedented times.”

With time ticking down until the start of the season, it should be interesting to see how this plays out.
