Champaign, Ill. -
Momentum continues to build for the Illinois men's basketball program and Fighting Illini fans have answered in strong fashion. Season tickets show a 92-percent renewal rate, and the recently introduced allotment of 1,000 banner-level season tickets is sold out.
On the heels of this response, the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Monday the creation of the Illini Power Pack ticket special. For the price of just $129, this offer includes a ticket to the Indiana game on New Year's Eve (2 p.m.), the Michigan State game on Saturday, Jan. 18 (7 p.m.), and all nine non-conference and preseason games: Oct. 24 vs. McKendree, Nov. 3 vs. Northwood (Mich.), Nov. 8 vs. Alabama State, Nov. 10 vs. Jacksonville State, Nov. 13 vs. Valparaiso, Nov. 17 vs. Bradley, Nov. 22 vs. Chicago State, Nov. 29 vs. IPFW and Dec. 10 vs. Dartmouth.
The Illini Power Pack results in a price of less than $12 per game across those 11 UI home contests. With the Power Pack on sale now - six weeks before the single-game sale date of Oct. 22 - this is the only way for non-season ticket holders to guarantee their tickets for the Indiana and Michigan State games.
Illini Power Pack tickets can be purchased now online at FightingIllini.com, by phone at (866)-ILLINI-1 or in person at the Illinois ticket office at State Farm Center.
University of Illinois students, meanwhile, still have an opportunity to purchase season tickets. Student tickets are on sale exclusively at FightingIllini.com. UI students must order by Sept. 20 to receive priority seating. Students interested in joining Orange Krush should visit IlliniPride.com for details. Registration for Krush closes on Sept. 20.
