About Kroger Field

Kroger Field

Kroger Field is a college football stadium in Lexington, Kentucky. It serves as the home field for the University of Kentucky Wildcats football team. The stadium first opened in 1973 under the name Commonwealth Stadium, making it the youngest football stadium in the SEC. In 2021, Kroger Field hosted a concert for the first time but has otherwise been used for football. Since it opened, Kroger Field has undergone multiple renovations to improve the experience for both fans and players. For football games, Kroger Field has a capacity of 61,000 fans.

Where are the Best Places to Sit at Kroger Field

The best seats at Kroger Field are club seats in sections 25-27. In addition to being located near the center of the field, fans in club seats also have access to a climate-controlled lounge and amenities that aren’t available to other fans. Meanwhile, sections 5-7 offer a similar view to club seats but are located on the visitor’s sideline. Sections 225-227 also have a great view of the entire field, albeit from higher up. Plus, rows 2-7 in these sections have seatbacks, which are rare outside of club seats.

Tips for Visiting Kroger Field 

There are multiple reasons for fans to arrive early for a game at Kroger Field. First, there is a Fan Zone open three hours before kickoff that features food, entertainment, and appearances by former Kentucky players. Fans might also be interested in the Wildcat Walk, which takes place two hours before the game and welcomes the team to the stadium. The stadium’s latest renovations also make the inside of the stadium a more appealing place to wander around before a game. Finally, Lexington is one of the biggest cities in Kentucky and offers plenty of attractions, although Kroger Field is located a few miles away from downtown Lexington.

Food to Try at Kroger Field

With the latest round of renovations, the food available at Kroger Field has taken a big step forward. For starters, the House of Cue offers excellent pulled pork, brisket, and barbecue chicken sandwiches. The Athenian Grill also offers excellent gyro sandwiches. There are also several items with local Kentucky flair, most notably bourbon ice cream and chicken and waffle cones, as well as specialty nachos and tater tots.
