The New Commonwealth Stadium will seat approximately 61,000, creating an intimate game-day atmosphere and the best possible home-field advantage for Kentucky football.
Inside and out, Commonwealth Stadium will be completely transformed through the $110-million renovation. As reflected in the map above, section and seat numbers throughout The New CWS will change.
Beginning in October 2014, we will work with current season ticket holders to help you select the seats that best fit your needs for opening day in 2015. You will be able to view and select your own seats on an online platform that will bring The New CWS into a virtual environment.
This new seat selection process will be based on K Fund priority ranking as of June 30, 2014. The K Fund priority point system is designed to reward season ticket loyalty and total dollar contributions in support of UK Athletics.
With the addition of premium seating and the move of the entire student section to the East end zone, some season ticket locations will no longer exist. However, we have created seating areas where fans can enjoy similar views at an unchanged price.
We have also worked to provide a variety of affordable ticketing options by making approximately 25,000 season tickets in The New CWS available at the $100 Annual K Fund Donation Level or lower.

Bench-backs will be added in these areas as part of the renovation to provide comparable seating options on both sides of the field. The majority of seats in this area will be located along the North sideline, with two sections along the South sideline adjacent to new club seating. Seating at the front of the South upper level (rows 2-7) will continue to feature chair-back seats.

The entire $300 Annual Donation Level – located along both the North and South sideline – will also feature bench-back seats.

Even with its reduced capacity, The New CWS features the same amount of season tickets available at the $100 Annual Donation Level. New areas in the stadium will be offered at the $100 Annual Donation Level, including lower level and upper level seats along the North sideline. Seating in north upper level (rows 2-8) will feature bench-back seats.
Season tickets that do not require an annual donation will be available in the upper level of both the North and South sidelines.
The new student section will be situated around the tunnel through which the Wildcats will take the field, creating an intimidating environment. In addition, all student seating will now be located in the lower level.
Visitor seating in the lower level will be reduced, with many seats moving to the rear areas of sections in the North upper level.
