Rupp Arena

"They're alright"

Seat Review From Section 13, Row E, Seats 5,6
Oct 2015


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.

Best for... watching the game, bringing the family, being close to the action

Avoid if... you consider yourself "Big" and "Tall", climbing stairs is difficult
