Big Blue Madness Ticket Info Announced

August 26, 2019

UK fans will be able to get their tickets to Big Blue Madness, UK’s annual kickoff of the men’s and women’s basketball season on Friday, September 27th, at 10 pm. Madness will again be held in Rupp Arena, on Friday, October 11th. Tickets will be available, as usual, at the Memorial Coliseum box office for those who camp out, and online at starting at 10 pm. Those wishing to camp out for tickets can do so starting at 5 am on Wednesday, September 25th. Those folks that camp out usually end up with some of the best seats and enjoy the interaction with players from the men’s and women’s teams in the days and nights leading up to ticket distribution, so it is definitely worth camping out if you have the ability to do so.

Tickets to Madness are free, but a small fee will be charged if you obtain them through Ticketmaster. Line assignments will be issued to those folks camped out on Friday, September 27th, at 2 pm. Fans must be present to receive their line assignments, and fans must be in line by 10 pm on Friday to receive your tickets. If you do plan on camping out, get there early ready to set up your camping area on Wednesday morning, because space is limited.

Fan and player interaction during campout is one of the best parts of Big Blue Madness. Over the course of the campout, fans have played cornhole and shared food and laughs with coaches and players from the men’s and women’s teams. The teams also hand out food from time to time during the campout, ranging anywhere from pizza to tacos, to chicken biscuits. Usually, there is a live show one night during the campout where Tom Leach, the voice of the Cats, and former players will speak with the current players and coaches, and fans will get to hear directly from players and coaches of both programs about what they have in store for this 2019-2020 season. We are just 46 days away from what promises to be another exciting season on the hardwood, and Big Blue Madness will be here before we know it.
