The priority point system is utilized to ensure a fair and equitable allocation of assets of UK Athletics events. The point system is designed to reward loyalty and total dollar contributions in support of UK Athletics. It is used to facilitate demand pertaining to season ticket upgrade request, football season parking requests, post-season tickets including SEC, NCAA and Bowl games.
Priority ranks are updated daily. Even though your point total may not change every day, your priority rank fluctuates based on the point activities of all accounts. Priority ranks range from 1 (highest number of points) to approximately 35,000 (lowest number of points). The K Fund operates on a fiscal year of July 1 – June 30.
You can earn points in these categories each year and they accumulate from year to year.
