Rain Forces Finkbine Parking Closure

Sept. 12, 2008

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Fans attending Saturday’s football game between Iowa and Iowa State will not be allowed to park on the driving range at the University of Iowa’s Finkbine Golf Course because of heavy rain that has already fallen in the Iowa City area and what is expected to fall overnight.

Fans who were intending to use this parking location are invited to park at the UI Athletics Hall of Fame or the Hawkeye Commuter parking lot. Both can be accessed off of Mormon Trek Boulevard and Melrose Avenue.

Weather conditions have also closed the grass parking immediately east of the Cretzmeyer Track located off Highway 6 in Coralville.

Fans are invited to visit uifootballparking.com for a map that details all game-day parking options. Fans are also reminded that umbrellas are not allowed inside Kinnick Stadium.

For comprehensive game-day information, fans are invited to click on the “Game Day Central” link on hawkeyesports.com, the official world wide web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes.
