Victory comes with a price for Iowa football fans.
Following an 8-5 season and the program’s first New Year’s Day bowl appearance since 2009, Iowa announced today it will increase the cost of season tickets for the Hawkeyes’ seven-game 2014 home schedule by $1 per game for the general public and Iowa faculty and staff.
Tickets for the general public will be priced at $395 next season, up from $388 in 2013, while tickets for faculty and staff will cost $325. The increases are the first for Iowa in two years.
The cost of student season tickets will remain unchanged at $175 and students will be given the option to purchase a six-game $150 ticket that does not include the Nebraska game which will be played on the Friday of Thanksgiving break week.
Iowa also announced single-game ticket prices, ranging from $55 for a home game against Ball State to $70 for games against Iowa State, Wisconsin and Nebraska. Tickets for the season-opening home game against Northern Iowa are priced at $60, while tickets for games against Indiana and Northwestern will be priced at $65 each.
Discounted tickets for youths, priced at $25, will be available for nonconference games against UNI and Ball State and Big Ten games against Indiana and Northwestern, once single-game tickets go on sale this summer.
Tickets for the 2014 season will go on sale to 2013 season ticket holders and current Iowa students in late February.
By comparison, Iowa season tickets cost fans $250 for six home games in the 2004 season.
Iowa averaged 67,127 fans at seven home games last season, its lowest season average since an average of 65,798 fans attended games at Kinnick Stadium in 2003.
