UI Now Accepting Football Season Ticket Orders from New Customers

March 22, 2010

IOWA CITY, Iowa – The UI Athletics Ticket Office is now accepting orders for season tickets to the home games of the 2010 University of Iowa football team from new customers.

The Hawkeyes play seven games inside historic Kinnick Stadium this fall beginning with the season opener on Sept. 4 against Eastern Illinois. Iowa also entertains Iowa State in the annual Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series game (Sept. 11) and Ball State (Sept. 25) before opening its Big Ten Conference season against Penn State on Oct. 2. Iowa will also host Wisconsin (Oct. 23), Michigan State (Oct. 30) and Ohio State (Nov. 20).

The cost of a season ticket for a member of the general public is $360. The cost of a season ticket for a member of the UI faculty or staff is $290. To purchase season tickets, fans should visit the UI Athletics Ticket Office in Carver-Hawkeye Arena or call 1-800 IA-HAWKS.

Fans making a season ticket purchase will again this year have the option of making payment in three equal installments. The first payment is due when the season ticket order is place. The second must be made by May 26 and the third and final payment must be made by June 23.

Some seat locations inside historic Kinnick Stadium require an annual contribution to the National I-Club. If a season ticket order from a new season ticket customer is filled with seats in an area of the stadium that requires a per seat gift, the customer will be notified of the amount due to the National I-Club by June 30. Per seat gift requirements for UI faculty and staff tickets are half of what is required from the general public.

A limited number of requests for season tickets can be filled due to single-game ticket commitments related to the staging of the Iowa-Iowa State game. Orders for season tickets from new customers will be filled based on the customer’s standing in the UI Priority Points system; it should be noted that the processing of an order for season tickets by the UI Athletics Ticket Office does not guarantee that the order will be filled.

Fans of the Iowa Hawkeyes with questions should contact the UI Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800 IA-HAWKS.
