    They're alright

    Section 13, Row E, Seats 5,6

    Rupp Arena's seats are not for large people - they would best fit someone very slim, narrow, and short (under 5'5"). Last time I visited, I was in middle school, and erroneously believed everything would be okay. I am pretty sure my knees are permanently indented from the seats in front of me, and the man beside me looked thoroughly disgusted the side of my thigh touched him the entirety of the game.There is absolutely no room through the rows to walk by anyone without people standing up and basically doing backbends to get out of even the smallest person's way to let them through. If you are tall, or a guest of size (width, height), get an end seat, or the front row, or else the nosebleed/accessible is your only option. The view from these seats is terrific (the only saving grace), and somehow better than how pictures can display. It is a shame the home court for the greatest team in Kentucky has such awful seats.

    • Courtside


      Courtside seats at Rupp Arena are widely considered the best tickets for a Kentucky basketball game. These seats are within five rows of the court and are sometimes known as Floor Seats. Courtside Rows There are two types of Courtside seats for Kentucky basketball. True Courtside seats are located directly on the floor. Fans will be seated on a folding chair just mere feet from the action. These rows are labeled FL, AAA or BBB. Behind true Courtside seats are stadium seating rows labeled AA-DD. While these seats aren't directly on the floor, they are extra-padded chairback seats with excellent sitelines. 

    • Lower Level


      Lower Level sections are Rupp Arena are labeled with a two-digit number (e.g.: 12). Rows in these sections are lettered. Double and triple-letter rows are closer to the floor, while Row Y is at the back of most sections. Best Lower Level Seats for Kentucky Basketball  Sit as close to center court as possible - in any row - for the best experience at a Kentucky game. If you sit in one of the front rows in one of these side sections you'll have extra-comfortable Courtside seats. And if you're in a higher row, you'll have a more comfortable view of the court. We're not a big fan of end sections because the basket disrupts your view. And we think corner sections are too far removed from the court. Best Lower Level Seats for a Concert  For most concerts, the best seats on the Lower Level will be in sections 13 and 32. When the stage is setup on the West end of the arena, these are the closest side sections with a clear view of the stage. Lower Level sections are the primary alternative to guests who don't like sitting in Floor Seats. The rise of these sections makes it easier to see over other guests and most seats come with better access to amenities.
