U of L has announced that approximately 3,000 fans will be permitted to attend home men’s and women’s basketball games inside the KFC Yum Center this winter.

Here’s the release from the university:

University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball season ticket holders will be contacted soon with information on plans for attending games in the KFC Yum! Center for the 2020-21 season which begins Nov. 25.

KFC Yum! Center officials have worked collaboratively with UofL, the Governor’s office and others to craft a safe, flexible ticketing and operation plan for fans at a reduced arena capacity of 15 percent, allowing seating to be appropriately distanced.

UofL will admit approximately 3,000 fans per game within the 22,090-seat KFC Yum! Center, with all seating anticipated to be within the lower bowl and premium seating areas. Multiple safety measures will be in place, including temperature checks at the entrances, face covering requirements, physical distancing within the arena and other restrictions. All ticketing for the season will be digital.


Season ticket holders will receive information via email addressing their specific ticket options. To allow as many season ticket holders an opportunity to attend games with the limited capacity, UofL will be reaching out to all fans with information reflecting their individual status and options.

Get your “how many of those 3,000 will be Kentucky fans” jokes in while you can.
