Rupp Arena

UKMBB vs Louisville

Kentucky Men's Basketball

Doors open at 11:30 a.m.

The Wildcats play their home games in Rupp Arena, a facility named for their former coach, Adolph Rupp. Rupp Arena is the largest arena in the United States built specifically for basketball, with an official capacity of 23,500. As a result, Kentucky consistently ranks first in the nation in home game attendance. The team's huge fan base is often referred to as the "Big Blue Nation" or the "Big Blue Mist", the latter because the fans typically engulf tournament and neutral-site venues and cities.

With enhancement to security, Rupp Arena and UK Athletics have implemented a new policy limiting the size bag that may be brought inside Rupp Arena. Click here for an list of Restricted Items and details on Game Day Operations >
