IOWA CITY, Iowa - Interest in the 2010 football season at the University of Iowa is pushing sales of season tickets to near sellout status as the deadline for fans of the Hawkeyes who purchased general public or UI faculty/staff season tickets a year ago to renew their season ticket order for the coming season draws near.

 

 


Fans of Kirk Ferentz's nationally ranked squad and defending champions of the FedEx Orange Bowl who purchased season tickets a year ago have until Friday (April 30) to renew their season ticket order. The UI sold just less than 37,000 season tickets to the general public and UI faculty and staff, and more than 10,000 UI student season tickets a year ago.

The UI Athletics Ticket Office has received orders from new customers for more than 4,000 general public and UI faculty/staff season tickets to date and department staff expect that number to grow and, perhaps, reach a point where additional requests for seven-game season ticket can't be filled.

"If fans who purchased season tickets a year ago renew at the rate that we anticipate, we are very close to the point where we will begin offering a `partial season ticket' option," said Pam Finke, the UI's director of ticket operations.

Finke said the UI has a number of obligations that require tickets to the annual Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series game with the Cyclones. She notes, however, that a `partial season ticket' will likely be popular given the profile of Iowa's other six home game opponents: Big Ten Conference rivals Penn State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Ohio State in addition to the other two non-conference games against Eastern Illinois (the season opener) and Ball State (the Throwback Game).

The UI also anticipates 100 percent participation in the premium seating options inside the Paul W. Brechler Press Box for 2010. A limited number of indoor club seats and private suites were available a year ago on a game-by-game basis. That was not the case, however, in the 1,200-seat outdoor club area where the UI has had a waiting list since opening that space.

Lastly, sales of season tickets to UI students continues at a pace comparable to last year when the UI sold out the student section inside historic Kinnick Stadium. Current UI students are being encouraged to make their season ticket purchases in football and men's basketball prior to the end of the 2010 spring semester. By doing so, they will guarantee themselves a seven-game season ticket in the sport of football and receive a free "MAD-Pack" as a men's basketball season ticket customer.

As in the past, groups interested in attending a home game of the 2010 Iowa football team are encouraged to purchase game tickets and game-day hospitality inside Hawkeye Village by contacting Bravo Sports Marketing at (319) 626-8286 or online at bravosportsmarketing.com. To go there, click HERE.

Single game tickets, if available, will go on sale in early July.

Fans of the Hawkeyes with questions about tickets to the home games of the 2010 Iowa football team should contact the UI Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800 IA-HAWKS. Information is also available at hawkeyesports.com, the official world wide web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes. To go there, click HERE.
