Parking is available at Truist Arena’s surface lot and at two parking garages, one of which connects directly to the Arena. Parking fees are included on tickets unless otherwise indicated. Parking will be conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Fans are asked to abide by the clear-bag policy, and all concession stands are cashless. For more information on prohibited items and the arena, visit the Truist Arena website.
This comes after the team had its 2022 Blue-White Game in Pikeville, which helped raise $162,450 for victims of the 2022 Eastern Kentucky flooding. The team also raised more than $2 million for flood relief with an open practice and telethon at Rupp Arena last August.
Great to see John Calipari and his players are once again finding a cool way to play a game in a different part of the state while also raising money for those affected by disasters.
