LEXINGTON, Ky. – As a reward for season-ticket holders who renewed prior to March 31, Kentucky football will host an open house allowing fans to go behind the scenes at Kroger Field and the Joe Craft Football Training Facility on Friday, June 23.

The open house will take place from 6-10 p.m. on June 23. The event will offer exclusive access through self-guided tours of the two facilities that opened over the last two years, taking fans into premium spaces, the press box, team areas, locker room, weight room, practice field, state-of-the-art recruiting room and onto the field. 

Eligible season ticket holders should have received an email last week with details for how to RSVP and print tickets to the special event. The deadline to print tickets is Tuesday, June 20 at 5 p.m. Free parking will be provided in the Glenn Hyundai Blue Lot. Please note, outside food or drink is not allowed in either facility and guests are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes.

Season ticket holders who attend the free event will be eligible to enter raffle drawing for Season Ticket Surprises and specialty food samples from Kroger Field’s concessions offerings will be available. Several of UK Athletics’ corporate partners will participate in the open house:
