2022 Schedule Features Eight-Game Home Slate
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Coming off a sixth consecutive bowl trip, fourth straight bowl victory and returning many of the star players from a historic 10-win team plus the addition of an elite signing-day class, UK Athletics announced ticket information for the 2022 football season on Monday .
“Under Coach Stoops’ leadership, we have won four straight bowl games, including two Citrus Bowls,” Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart said. “Our fans have been a huge part of those successes. As we continue to pursue a Southeastern Conference Championship, it will be important to have the Big Blue Nation continue to walk alongside us. With eight home games this year, fans are presented with even more great opportunities to cheer on the Wildcats. We thank them for their passionate investment in Kentucky football and look forward to seeing them back in Kroger Field this fall.”
Kentucky football is slated to play eight homes games this fall. The schedule includes SEC matchups against South Carolina (Oct. 8), Mississippi State (Oct. 15), Vanderbilt (Nov. 12) and defending national champion Georgia (Nov. 19). UK will also host nonconference foes Miami University (Sept. 3), Youngstown State (Sept. 17), Northern Illinois (Sept. 24) and Louisville (Nov. 26).
Kentucky fans sold out Kroger Field multiple times in 2021, playing an important role in some of the most memorable wins in program history, and energizing the Wildcats to another 10-win season.
Back by popular demand, an Early Signing Period will offer special pricing to 2021 season ticket holders who renew by Feb. 10. Those who either pay in full or enroll in a payment plan will be able to lock in their 2022 season tickets at Early Signing Period pricing.
Ticket holders who renew by Feb. 10 will save between $10-$50 per season ticket. For a majority of fans, renewing during the Early Signing Period will provide ticket cost-savings on a per-game basis for the 2022 season, as UK’s schedule will feature eight home games.
In a continuing effort to create affordable options and provide opportunities for potential new season ticket holders, ticket prices in the 200-level corners will start at $225 for the 2022 season. UK will also offer a new price point for chairback seats in sections 222 and 230, where the associated K Fund donation will decrease by $75 per seat.
K Fund donations will remain unchanged for all other seating areas, except for the first six rows nearest the field in sections 4-8, where the K Fund donation will increase by $75 per seat.
UK Athletics is committed to offering a variety of ticket price points and affording great value for football season tickets, while continuing to provide the resources necessary for a championship-level football program. Complete pricing is detailed below.

All season ticket holders will also be recognized on the Kentucky Farm Bureau “Wall of Commitment” inside Kroger Field.
Fans will also have the opportunity to make a donation toward the Football Facility Projects Fund. Future athletic project plans include, but are not limited to, football facility improvements and an indoor track & field complex. These projects, which rely on philanthropic support, will be done in conjunction with one another to ensure both athletic programs are set up for success. Please consider a gift to help these initiatives launch before the 2022 season!
