The University of Kentucky is planning for a full Rupp Arena this fall and winter.
The athletics department sent out a release yesterday, notifying current season ticket holders that renewals are available, which included this section.
While continuing to monitor the latest health and safety guidelines from local and national authorities, UK Athletics plans to operate Rupp Arena at full capacity this season. Fans can expect many other popular activities and traditions to return this fall and winter.
”I am looking forward to walking back into Rupp Arena with 20,000 packed to the rafters standing and cheering for our kids,” UK head coach John Calipari said. “Watching other sports and teams welcome their fans back, having attended a couple of events recently and seeing and feeling that buzz that the fans bring, I cannot wait to bring that back to Rupp. It truly is the greatest tradition in the history of college basketball.”
Hopefully, this plan is able to remain as playing in front of a packed Rupp Arena makes a world of difference for the players and the entire program. Not having a full arena limits the connection the players have with the fans and vice versa, which we saw this past season.
