Iowa-Illinois Reaches Sellout Status

Sept. 23, 2003

UI Director of Ticket Operations David Sandstrum announced Tuesday that the home game of the nationally ranked Iowa Hawkeyes scheduled for Nov. 1 against Big Ten Conference rival Illinois has reached sellout status. Sandstrum said a limited number of “singles” scattered throughout legendary Kinnick Stadium are available for purchase.

The announcement of the Iowa-Illinois game reached sellout status means that fans interested in seeing Coach Kirk Ferentz’s squad live inside Kinnick have only one option left — Iowa’s home game Nov. 15 against Minnesota. However, Sandstrum said fans shouldn’t delay.

Three of Iowa’s remaining four home games have already reached sellout status. Tickets to the only game that hasn’t — the Hawkeyes’ Nov. 15 date against Minnesota — are selling fast.

“Tickets to the Minnesota game are moving quite briskly. I wouldn’t wait if I were interested in seeing a game inside Kinnick this fall,” said Sandstrum.

Iowa opens its home Big Ten schedule on Oct. 4 against Michigan. That game and Iowa’s game against Penn State on Oct. 25 were announced sellouts last Friday. Iowa defeated Arizona State last Saturday before a sold out Kinnick Stadium crowd of 70,300-plus.

I wouldn’t wait if I were interested in seeing a game inside Kinnick this fall.”

“Again, it’s a reflection of the excitement being generated by the Hawkeyes. They have the state of Iowa energized,” said Sandstrum.
