Kroger Field Sea of Blue

If you’re attending any of the indoor facilities at Kroger Field during a game this season, UK Athletics will require you to wear a mask regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status.

This announcement came late Sunday night and UK Athletics is sure to provide more comments throughout the week as we are less than two weeks from Game One.

KSR’s Matt Jones notes in his tweet that “crowded areas” will reportedly mandate masks as well. Until we receive more clarification from UK Athletics, it’s only logical to assume this means masks will be mandated in “crowded areas” throughout the outdoor seats in Kroger Field as well.

Also noted in Matt’s tweet — it appears the only exception to the “mask mandate” will be if you’re in an “individual suite.”

Kentucky will host University of Louisiana-Monroe on September 4th for their home opener.
