Dear University of Iowa Football Family:

Thank you for your loyal support as we continue to work through these challenging times. We are potentially one month away from our home opener and want to inform you of changes to football ticket sales for this season.

Here’s what we know…

  • If we play and fans are permitted to attend, the five home Big Ten Conference games will be sold as single games and not as a season ticket. This provides for greater access and flexibility for our season ticket holders and the opportunity to increase or decrease capacity as the season unfolds.
  • Main stands and premium seating in Kinnick Stadium will follow six-feet social distancing guidelines.
  • Capacity will be reduced to approximately 10-15,000 seats per game.
  • Fans will be required to wear face coverings and additional mitigation strategies have been implemented.
  • All tickets and parking passes will be mobile.
  • University of Iowa students will have access to single game tickets in the student section. The capacity will be limited and distribution plans are still being finalized.
  • Parking lots will be restricted to 50 percent capacity and open four hours before kickoff.

To provide more access to the limited number of tickets, there will not be season tickets or season parking this year.

  • New single-game prices will be announced soon and they will be priced by stadium section and game.
  • Fans will select tickets in groups of two or four, socially distanced throughout the stadium.
  • Seat locations will be best available at the time of purchase, by section.
  • Parking will also be sold on a single-game basis with one spot per account.

Tickets and per-seat contributions will automatically be rolled over to 2021. Season ticket holders don’t need to take further action, unless you would like to request a refund or convert your per-seat/parking requirement to a tax-deductible donation. If this is your preference, please let us know by Aug. 14, 2020 by emailing

Many supporters have asked how to help our Hawkeye student-athletes. I would ask you to please consider reinvesting your per-seat contributions into the Hawkeye Scholarship Fund, a fully tax-deductible fund, that provides scholarship support for our 650 student-athletes. This would allow our student-athletes to continue to compete in the the classroom and in their respective sport.

All information regarding our tickets and Kinnick Stadium will be posted at We appreciate your patience and understanding. While these are significant changes, the health and safety of our fans, student-athletes, coaches and staff remains our top priority.

Do I have my reserved season ticket seat locations if I purchase single-game tickets?

Due to social distancing requirements, all seats in 2020 will be used for single-game sales to provide the most access during these unprecedented times. Season ticket locations from 2019 will be applied to 2021.

Are facemasks/face coverings/face shield required to attend a game in Kinnick Stadium?

Yes. Fans without facemasks/face coverings/face shield will not be admitted into the stadium, even with a valid ticket. Applicable face coverings (cloth covering, disposable or cloth mask, face shield) must be worn by all building occupants.

Why are you going to a single-game model?

This model provides greater access and flexibility for our season ticket holders and the opportunity to increase or decrease capacity as the season unfolds.

I have already renewed my season tickets for 2020, is there anything else I need to do to secure single-game tickets this year?

Yes. Iowa Athletics will not apply your current investment to the purchase of single-game tickets. If a season ticket holder would like to purchase single-game tickets, they will do this during individual game on-sale.

Who is eligible for the single game on-sale?

Season ticket holders who have kept their investment with us in 2020 will have priority access. Any single-game tickets remaining after the priority on-sale will be opened up for sale to the general public. Non-season ticket holders will have access after 2020 season ticket holders have had a chance to purchase.

If I request a refund for my 2020 season tickets, do I have access to the single-game on sale?

Priority will be provided to those individuals who are current 2020 season ticket holders. Any single-game tickets remaining after the priority on-sale will be opened up for sale to the general public.

As a current season ticket holder, do I get to keep my seats next year?

Yes, in 2021 we hold the 2019 & 2020 seating locations and priority during the renewal process.

What are the options I have as a season ticket holder with my 2020 ticket investment?

Option No. 1:  (Default option unless Option No. 2 is requested)

Receive a future credit.  You can apply your 2020 football season ticket and parking, if applicable, purchase toward your 2021 football season tickets and receive priority access to purchase 2020 single-game tickets.


Option No. 2:

Receive a full refund: As previously stated, you will maintain seat location and priority points for the 2021 season, but will not receive priority access to the single-game ticket on sale.

What are the options if my season tickets or parking required a 2020 I-Club contribution?

Option No. 1:

Convert your I-Club Fund contribution to the Hawkeye Scholarship Fund or Hawkeye Fund: Your support will help sustain the annual operations of Iowa Athletics during a time of great need. Your investment will provide support for our 650 Hawkeye student-athletes, and you will receive a tax deduction for your contribution.


Option No. 2: (Default unless option No. 1 or No. 3 is requested)

Receive a future credit.  You can apply your current contribution toward recognition of your 2021 Hawkeye football season tickets.


Option No. 3: 

Receive a full refund.  You can receive a full refund of your I-Club Fund contribution for fiscal year 2020 and will not receive priority access to the single-game ticket on sale.

Is there a deadline to request a refund?

Yes. If you would like to request a refund or convert your contribution to a tax deductible gift please contact us at by August 14, 2020.  After this date, season ticket and per-seat contributions will be rolled to the 2021 season. Please remember, if you choose a refund it will remove you from having priority access to the single-game on sale.

How are my priority points impacted in 2020 if I make a donation or ask for a refund?

All 2019 season ticket holders will be awarded points for season tickets. For more info on priority points go to

How many seats will I be able to purchase each game?

Two or four tickets per account for all accounts.

Why are tickets being sold in groups of two or four per game?

Blocks of two or four tickets maximize capacity in Kinnick Stadium while maintaining social distancing requirements.

How will Club seats be sold?

Club seats will be sold the same as main stand tickets, but they will only be available to renewed club seat holders. A limit of two or four tickets and one parking pass will be available per account. Club areas will maintain the same state of Iowa social distancing requirements as main stand seating.

How many parking passes will I be able to purchase each game?

One parking pass per account. More information on parking will be released with single-game ticket information is released in the coming weeks.

When will single-game tickets go on sale?

We are targeting the week of August 26th for the single-game ticket on-sale. Stay tuned to as information becomes available.

How much will single-game tickets cost?

Tickets will be variably priced base on opponent and seat location. Information will be released in the weeks to come.

If I purchase a single-game ticket, will I be socially distanced?

Yes. Fans will only be able to purchase tickets in groups of two or four per account. Blocks of two or four tickets will meet the requirements of the state of Iowa to maintain social distancing. There will be an expectation of fan responsibility to maintain distancing for both their safety and the safety of fans seated near them.

What other changes are coming to the football game experience, including parking and tailgating?

Fans attending the game will be asked to follow current local, state or national guidelines related to social gatherings. Stay tuned for future details on and through email.

If I purchased a Fight for Iowa Mobile Pass, am I eligible for access to priority in the single-game on-sale?

No. All Fight for Iowa mobile pass holders will be fully refunded for the 2020 season. If tickets remain after the priority on sale, Fight for Iowa mobile pass holders may have the ability to purchase with the general public.
