New Seating In Rupp Arena

Rupp Arena unveiled major improvement in the upper area Tuesday.Officials report fans in sections 211 through 217 and 228 through 234 will now have chair-back seating.Lexington Center President and CEO Bill Owen could not say if the upgrades will increase ticket prices, but these seats did decrease the facility’s capacity by 3,000 seats.”We’re still 20,545 seats for basketball, up to a little over 19,000 seats for concerts so its still a big big room,” said Owen.
