Current University of Iowa students can now purchase single-game tickets to any of the remaining home games of the 2005-06 Iowa men’s basketball team including tickets to the eight games scheduled against Big Ten Conference opponents.
Single-game tickets cost just $15 for current UI students. Approximately 300 tickets for Iowa’s four Big Ten home games against Illinois, Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin to be played on Saturdays are available for purchase by UI students.
Tickets are also available for current UI students for Iowa’s games against Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan State and Penn State that are schedule on weekdays.
The Hawkeyes’ games against Indiana and Michigan State both are slated for live television coverage by ESPN. The UI’s game against the Hoosiers has been designed “The Gold Rush Game” – the UI basketball program’s equivalent to the Iowa football program’s “Black Out Saturday” event. All fans attending the Iowa-Indiana game are encouraged to wear gold to show their support of the 2005-06 Hawkeyes.
“It’s very possible if not likely that six of the eight games we will play in Carver this Big Ten season will reach sellout status before the start of the league season.”
David Sandstrum, UI director of ticket operations
A limited number of tickets priced at $25 each for Iowa’s Saturday Big Ten home games against Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin, and the Hawkeyes’ games against Indiana and Michigan State are available for purchase by the general public. Tickets are also available for Iowa’s final three non-conference home games – Arizona State this Saturday , Drake next Tuesday and Robert Morris next Thursday.
“It’s very possible if not likely that six of the eight games we will play in Carver this Big Ten season will reach sellout status before the start of the league season,” said David Sandstrum, the UI’s director of ticket operations.
Boys and girls high school-aged and younger attending Iowa’s home games against Drake, Robert Morris and Penn State can purchase a $10 ticket at the door if accompanied by an adult while supplies of tickets earmarked for discounted sale last. These are three of the four games that were designated “Youth Basketball Days” earlier this year by the department.
UI students must purchase single-game tickets at the UI Athletic Ticket Office in Carver-Hawkeye Arena or online at hawkeyesports.com beginning Friday morning.
General public tickets can be purchased online at hawkeyesports.com, over the phone at 1-800 IA-HAWKS or in person at ticket office location in Carver or at the Iowa City/Coralville Convention and Visitors Bureau information desk in Coral Ridge Mall.
