Once known as the Commonwealth Stadium, Kroger Field in Lexington, Kentucky is home to the Kentucky Wildcats football team. The venue sits on the University of Kentucky campus and has hosted more than 200 games since its construction in 1973. Fans must purchase season parking permits or single-game parking passes to secure parking in nearby lots. Alternatively, they may park for free in several garages much farther from the venue.
