90 Degrees, 90 Pictures

July 10, 2005

A 90-degree day in Iowa City deserves…what else? 90 new pictures of the progress on the renovation of historic Kinnick Stadium.

The staff of hawkeyesports.com visited the spaces at field level – the team lockerrooms, the space for use by the media, and more – on Friday. We also were escorted onto the first two levels of the new press box and were on hand when the staff was installing the main speaker cluster into the new scoreboard.

You can check out the 90-plus images of the “July 8 Tour” by visiting the photo gallery inside kinnickrenovation.com, the official world wide web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Fans are reminded that tickets to the 2005 season opener for Coach Kirk Ferentz’s nationally ranked Iowa Hawkeyes – Sept. 3 against Ball State inside historic Kinnick Stadium – and Iowa’s Sept. 17 game against Northern Iowa will go on sale Thursday.

Fans can purchase theirs online by clicking on the “Tickets” link on the home page of hawkeyesports.com, the official world wide web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes or by calling the UI Athletic Ticket Office at 1-800 IA-HAWKS.

Fans can also purchase tickets over-the-counter at the UI Athletic Ticket Office inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena and at the Iowa City/Coralville Convention and Visitors Bureau welcome desk inside Coral Ridge Mall in nearby Coralville.

Last week, the UI Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced a suspension of season ticket sales to the general public and UI faculty and staff, and the sellout status for Iowa’s four home games against Big Ten Conference opponents in 2005.
