Rupp Arena will have a new look when the Big Blue Nation enters Big Blue Madness Friday night.
Earlier this week, the sideline upper level chair back seating was unveiled for fans to see for the first time and they will get to officially try them out when they’re introduced to the 2019-2020 Kentucky Wildcats on Friday.
While the recent upgrade lowers the attendance by 3,000 seats, chair back seating was something Rupp Arena desperately needed to improve the game day experience for fans.
You have already seen photos but now you can watch a video of the Rupp Arena transformation.
The Kentucky Men’s Basketball Twitter account tweeted the following video that shows the chair back seating being installed over the summer.
