LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 4, 2019) — Fresh off Kentucky football’s season-opening win over University of Toledo, UK Athletics is offering University of Kentucky faculty and staff the chance to cheer on the Wildcats when they return to Kroger Field this weekend.

Tickets to the Eastern Michigan University game on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. are available to UK faculty and staff for $25 apiece through this offer exclusively online here. To qualify for this offer, tickets must be purchased using your “@uky.edu” email address. This offer is exclusively online until 11:59 p.m. ET the night before the game, while supplies last.

Five-game partial season ticket packages are also still available at a discounted rate for full-time faculty and staff. Regular, full-time faculty and staff are eligible for a 20% discount on up to two season tickets, regularly priced at $243 and higher for the general public. Additionally, staff may receive a 50% discount on any per-seat K Fund donation on up to two season tickets, if applicable. K Fund discounts are not valid in premium seating areas, including suites, loge boxes and club levels and only apply at the $525 per seat donation level and below.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion two years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. The Chronicle of Higher Education judged us a “Great College to Work for," and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for three straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
