ABOUT BOX 18

Box 18 is located on the WEST end of the Stadium, on the second level.  The closest gate to Box 18 is “West Gate – 08”. Parking in the main lots are limited and are based on first come, first serve.

If you are planning to park there, be sure to plan to arrive early and “tailgate” with the rest of the UK fans, a tradition that goes back to the first football game played south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

The stadium and parking areas rest on an 86-acre plot that was once part of the UK Experimental Station Farm Grounds.  In 1999, both ends of the stadium were enclosed, along with the construction of 40 suites, 10 in each corner of the stadium. The total number of seats was increased to 67,606.
