IOWA CITY – Tickets to the home games of the nationally ranked University of Iowa football team against Montana, Northern Illinois and Northwestern will go on sale to the general public Wednesday morning, the UI Athletic Ticket Office announced Monday.
Single-game tickets, single-game tickets with game-day hospitality, and group tickets with game-day hospitality are available for all three of the games noted. The Hawkeyes’ games against Iowa State, Ohio State and this year’s Homecoming game against Purdue are sold out. Ticket sales for Iowa’s game against Wisconsin have been suspended.
Reserved seat general public tickets for the Montana, Northern Illinois and Northwestern games cost $48 each. The UI Athletic Ticket Office will begin single-game ticket sales to the general public at 9 a.m., Wednesday. Tickets can be purchased over the telephone by calling the UI Athletic Ticket Office at 1-800 IA-HAWKS and over-the-counter at the UI Athletic Ticket Office’s location in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Tickets can be purchased online beginning at 8 a.m., Wednesday, by clicking on the “Tickets” link in the upper right hand corner of hawkeyesports.com, the official World Wide Web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Single-game reserved seat tickets with game-day hospitality inside the general public tent of Hawkeye Village, the UI’s corporate hospitality area, cost $70 each. Group tickets with game-day hospitality that includes a private tent inside Hawkeye Village, is also available for all three games. For more information about those options fans of the Hawkeyes should contact Bravo Sports Marketing at (319) 626-8286.
Iowa’s game against Montana is scheduled for Sept. 2 and is the 2006 season opener for both teams. It will be the first game played inside renovated Kinnick Stadium and is also this year’s Varsity Club Day. As part of that celebration, the UI will introduce the 2006 class of inductees into the National Varsity Club Athletics Hall of Fame and other special guests and teams.
The Iowa-Northern Illinois game is scheduled for Oct. 28 and is this year’s “Black Out Saturday” game. All fans attending this event are encouraged to wear black in support of Coach Kirk Ferentz’s nationally ranked team. This game is also the first of two games against Northern Illinois during the next two seasons. Iowa will open the 2007 season against the Huskies at Chicago’s Soldiers Field on Labor Day weekend.
Iowa’s game against Northwestern is scheduled for Nov. 4. The Hawkeyes will be looking to avenge last year’s loss to the Wildcats in a game played in Evanston, Ill.
The Hawkeyes enter the 2006 college football season with a string of 17 consecutive sellouts of historic Kinnick Stadium. The UI expects all seven home games of the 2006 Hawkeyes to reach sellout status.
