IU Football Closes in on Sellout, Few Remaining Tickets to Go on Sale Saturday Morning
Oct. 1, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass announced that as of the Friday close of the ticket office (6 p.m.) very few tickets remain available for Saturday's game between Indiana and the 19th-ranked Michigan Wolverines. Those limited tickets will go on sale Saturday morning in the north end of Assembly Hall at 9 am ET.
"We will sell out," Glass predicted. "The only question is when."
Memorial Stadium's capacity is 52,929, including a normal student section of 11,338. Glass noted that the student section has been expanded to help accommodate tremendous student demand.
Indiana's last sellout came in 2007, when 50,741 tickets were sold for the Old Oaken Bucket game against Purdue. The last time Indiana drew over 50,000 fans for a home game against an opponent other than Purdue or Ohio State came in 1992, when Indiana drew 51,011 against No. 3 Michigan.
Due to construction on the 45/46 Bypass in the area between S.R. 37 and Walnut Street, congestion is expected on major roadways and thoroughfares leading to Memorial Stadium. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to limit congestion.
Check back soon
