This panorama, taken at Rupp Arena by Christopher Gjevre, features the University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball team playing to a sellout crowd.
Opening in 1976, this off-campus arena is the largest ever built for basketball. Its unique design consists of bleachers in the upper bowl, without luxury suites or a center-mounted scoreboard. It seats 23,500, frequently packing in over 24,000 fans with a student standing-room area called the “eRUPPtion Zone.”
This intimidating venue consistently ranks first in home game attendance. Kentucky basketball began in 1903 and has an unprecedented winning history. Founded in 1865 in Lexington, Kentucky, the University enrolls over 27,000 students.
