LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The University of Kentucky Athletics Department plans to open Kroger Field to full capacity for football games this fall, beginning with UK’s season opener against ULM on Sept. 4.

Fans can also expect many other popular activities and traditions to return this fall. 

Based on updated guidance from local and national authorities and current information available, UK intends to return to its traditional gameday environment for the 2021 campaign.

“Coming off three straight bowl wins and the enthusiasm for the team that Coach Stoops is putting together, we couldn’t be more eager for the upcoming season,” said Mitch Barnhart, UK Director of Athletics. “With an exciting lineup of opponents, and anticipating the return of bands, cheerleaders, tailgating and everything that goes along with college football Saturdays, we’re planning for great times at Kroger Field this fall.”

Fans interested in season-ticket purchases for the highly-anticipated 2021 season can visit for ticket prices and more information.

Kentucky football will play seven home games this fall. The Kentucky football team finished the 2020 season with a Gator Bowl victory over N.C. State, the Wildcats’ third straight bowl win.
