IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The cost for tickets to home games of the University of Iowa football team will increase $2 per game for the general public and UI faculty and staff in 2012, the UI Athletics Department announced Thursday.
The increase will move the cost of a season ticket purchased by a member of the general public for the seven home games of the 2012 UI football team to $388 each. The cost for a season ticket purchased by a member of the UI faculty and staff will move to $318 each.
There will be no increase in the cost of a UI student season ticket, however, UI students will have the choice of purchasing a 7-game season ticket at $175 or a 6-game season ticket at $150. The 6-game season ticket will not include a ticket to the Hawkeyes' game against Nebraska scheduled for Friday, Nov. 23 - the day after Thanksgiving when classes at the UI are not in session.
If available, single game tickets will be sold at the following prices:
Iowa State (Sept. 8) - $70
Northern Iowa (Sept. 15) - $60
Central Michigan (Sept. 22) - $55
Minnesota (Sept. 29) - $65
Penn State (Oct. 20) - $65
Purdue (Nov. 10) - $65
Nebraska (Nov. 23) - $70
The UI Athletics Department has also designated Iowa's games against Northern Iowa and Central Michigan as games where a limited number of $25 tickets intended for use by boys and girls age 18 and younger will be available for purchase.
Fans of the Iowa football team that purchased season tickets for the 2011 season will receive season ticket renewal information from the UI Athletics Ticket Office via email later this month. The renewal process will begin in early March. If available, single-game ticket sales will begin in late June or early July.
As always, season ticket customers will have the first opportunity to purchase away game tickets. This year that schedule of games includes the Hawkeyes' 2012 season opener against Northern Illinois in addition to games against Big Ten Conference rivals Michigan State (Oct. 13), Northwestern (Oct. 27), Indiana (Nov. 3) and Michigan (Nov. 17).
The UI sold out all seven of its home games in 2012 and has reached sellout status at 54 of its last 56 games played at historic Kinnick Stadium.
