Another game…another sellout? It’s possible for the nationally ranked 2004 Iowa Hawkeyes. Single-game sales for the season-opening “Throwback Game” for Coach Kirk Ferentz’s squad against Kent State, Saturday, Sept. 4, at historic Kinnick Stadium have been suspended until Wednesday, Aug. 25.
Single-game tickets for Iowa’s home games against Kent State, Michigan State and Purdue all are currently suspended. Whether tickets to those games become available will be determined by the number of season tickets sold to current UI students and the number of four-game season ticket packages purchased by the general public.
The UI will continue selling a four-game season ticket that includes tickets to the Hawkeyes’ home games against Kent State, Michigan State (Oct. 2), Purdue (Nov. 6) and Wicsonsin (Nov. 20, single-game tickets to the Wisconsin game, and student season tickets. Single-game ticket sales are currently suspended for Iowa’s dates with Michigan State and Purdue. “The sales pace among the general public hasn’t slowed and we need to provide our University of Iowa students an opportunity to get back to campus and make their purchase,” said David Sandstrum, Iowa’s assistant athletic director for ticket operations. “We’ll monitor those sales as well as sales of the four-game season ticket package that has proven to be pretty popular. If there’s inventory available to sell, we’ll lift the suspension,” he added. Iowa’s home games against Iowa State and Ohio State are sold out.
