Season ticket locations may be transferred from Current Season Ticket Holder (Transferor) to a New Season Ticket Holder (Transferee). The Transferee will be required to pay the established public rate for tickets and any associated I-Club contribution. Faculty/Staff and/or exempt status is not transferrable. Only spouses may transfer years of season ticket purchase and I-Club contribution history. No exceptions will be made. Premium seats and club license agreements are not transferable.
- In the Event of a Death: Tickets and/or parking may be transferred into the name of the surviving spouse. If no surviving spouse exists or no transfer requests to an immediate family member are made within sixty (60) days, the tickets and/or parking will be released and made available to the public based on the UI Athletics Priority Point System.
- In the Event of a Divorce: The Iowa Athletics Ticket Office will abide by any court-ordered decision about ticket and/or parking allocation. Upon both spouses’ consent, tickets and/or parking will be allocated as desired.
- Corporate Account Transfer: A privately owned business may request a transfer to the owner’s personal account when the owner sells their company (must provide legal documentation of the sales agreement). Up to 5 years of season ticket purchase and I-Club contribution history will be transferred. Individuals cannot transfer their personal accounts into a business account; they must start a separate account for a business.
To request a transfer, please complete the Season Ticket Transfer Request Form online. Both the Transferor and Transferee must consent to the transfer. A valid form of identification may be requested from both parties (i.e., copy of driver’s license, etc.).
All requests for ticket transfer will be reviewed at the discretion of the Iowa Athletics Ticket Office. Notice of approval or disapproval will be provided to both parties and all decisions should be considered final.
Priority points are awarded to each account based on years of season ticket purchases, contributions to the I-Club, alumni status, and letterwinner status. Priority totals are calculated separately for each sport (Football, Men’s Basketball, Women’s Basketball, and Wrestling). Priority points are not transferable, except between spouses.
Itemized priority point calculations can be viewed online. Priority points are updated at the beginning of each season of competition. If an account holder believes there is an error in point calculation, a request for priority point review may be submitted in writing to the Iowa Athletics Ticket Office.
For all ticketed events, everyone regardless of age must have a ticket for admission.
Infants ages 2 & under are admitted free to all regular season home events, except Football, Men’s Basketball, and premium Wrestling events, but must sit on an adult’s lap. Lap tickets are available the day of the game at the box office. If an infant requires a reserved seat, a ticket must be purchased for the event, subject to availability. Lap tickets are not valid for premium seating areas.
Youth pricing for ages 18 & under may be available at a discounted rate for select events.
Accessible tickets may be ordered by calling 1-800 IA-HAWKS or online at HawkeyeSports.com/tickets. Please provide any special seating needs necessary when ordering tickets. If wheelchair accessible seating is required, please note this as well. Each accessible seating order will be eligible for three (3) attendant seats, subject to availability.
If tickets located in general seating areas need to be exchanged for accessible seats, a person must provide their tickets for exchange to the Iowa Athletics Ticket Office as soon as possible prior to the game to ensure them accessible seats with attendant seat(s). Another option is to exchange tickets on game day, if available, at the box office. Ticket exchanges are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Orders for season tickets will be accepted through the established deadline. Orders submitted online, over the phone or postmarked after that date will be filled if tickets are available. However, there is no guarantee that the order will receive the same seats held the previous year.
All football & men’s basketball season ticket holders will have the opportunity to participate in an optional upgrade process. After the renewal period, each season ticket holder for football and/or men’s basketball will be assigned an individualized selection date and time to view a map of available seating options and move or improve existing seats, as well as add additional season tickets or parking.
All other sports will provide instructions on how to make requests during the renewal period.
Improvements are based on the University of Iowa Athletic Department Priority Point System. Priority points are calculated on an individual’s total athletics contributions, current gift to athletics, years of season ticket purchase, alumni status, and letter-winner status.
Required Per-Seat Contributions
