Student football, basketball tickets now on sale


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa football and men’s basketball student season tickets went on sale Tuesday.

Football tickets are priced at $174 for seven games, and students can purchase men’s basketball tickets for $90 for 20 home games.

All orders can be made online at hawkeyesports.com.

Pam Finke, the director of ticket operations, said the university has allotted 10,500 student tickets for football. She was unable to tell Tuesday night how many tickets have been sold but noted that the athletics tickets website received “a lot of traffic.”

Finke said students should buy their tickets as soon as possible to ensure they can get them.

“We want to encourage students to order before they go home for the summer,” she said, noting that students are sometimes disappointed when they return or arrive for the fall semester to find that no tickets are available.

Student season tickets have sold out the last two seasons. The Hawkeyes are a combined 19-7 over the last two years and have won three-consecutive bowl games for the first time in school history.

It’s difficult to predict if tickets will once again sell out, Finke said, but “football is hot right now, and it helps that Iowa won its bowl game.”

“For the price of the tickets and what students get out of it, I think it’s a good deal,”she said.

Iowa opens its 2011 football schedule on Sept. 3 against Tennessee Tech in Kinnick Stadium.
