Kentucky is renovating Commonwealth Stadium into a major-league football venue, and along with that comes major-league ticket prices.
The Wildcats will charge at least $320 for season tickets beginning in 2015, an eight-game home schedule according to Kyle Tucker of the Louisville Courier-Journal. That's par for the course. If you want a suite, though, it'll cost at least $75,000. Suites along the new south end zone will come at a price tag of $60,000, with a $15,000 donation due at reservation. That's up from $50,000 and $10,000, respectively, for Commonwealth Stadium's current suites.
Kentucky is also installing a loge area that will seat 300 fans, divided into boxes holding four-to-six people. Those can be had for the low, low price of $10,000 per season (plus ticket price) and a $2,500 donation, err "capital gift", due at signing. If you want to upgrade to a six-person loge, the price escalates to $15,000 and $3,750 apiece.
Another 1,800 seats will be built at the mezzanine and field levels. Mezzanine seats can be had for $1,500 a seat plus ticket price, and field level seats go for $1,250 a pop plus ticket price.
It'll be up to Mark Stoops to field a team worthy of major-league prices playing in its major-league stadium.
