Iowa football tickets running out
IOWA CITY (Press Release) – The University of Iowa Athletics Ticket Office announced today that only “singles” – single seats located in each of the four grandstands of Kinnick Stadium -- remain available for purchase for home night games versus Iowa State (Sept. 10, 6:30 p.m.) and Michigan (Nov. 12, 7 p.m.).
“Hawkeye fans make Kinnick Stadium one of the most electric college venues in the nation and we are pleased that our fans are excited for the 2016 season,” said Gary Barta, the UI’s director of athletics. “While we still have tickets to sell, we are extremely pleased with the momentum and will continue to make the entire game day experience one of the best in the country for our fans.”
Fans can still obtain tickets to remaining home games, season tickets or the three-game mini ticket package options, by purchasing online at hawkeyesports.com, over the phone by calling 1-800 IA-HAWKS, or at the UI Athletics Ticket Office in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
Season ticket requests for the upcoming season are currently 5,500 above the total sold a year ago (approximately 44,000 total), while student ticket requests are expected to exceed 8,000 for the first time since 2011.
The Hawkeyes ranked 24th in home attendance in 2015, with one sellout (40-35 win over Minnesota). Iowa has not had more than one sellout in a season since 2011, when all tickets to the seven home games were sold prior to the opening game of the season.
In addition to Iowa State and Michigan, the Hawkeyes host Miami, Ohio (Sept. 3, 2:30 p.m.), North Dakota State (Sept. 17, 11 a.m.), Northwestern (Oct. 1, 11 a.m.), Wisconsin (Oct. 22, kickoff time to be announced) and Nebraska (Nov. 25, time yet to be announced).
In posting a 12-2 over record a year ago, the Hawkeyes won all seven home games on the way to claiming the Big Ten Conference West Division title. Iowa competed in the Big Ten Championship game and the 2016 Rose Bowl Game.
