Illini fans can take advantage of a special Holiday ticket offer to see Brandon Paul and the 10th-ranked ranked Fighting Illini by purchasing a 3-game Big Ten mini-pack for just $49 each.
UPDATE - Dec. 18: Due to extremely limited tickets remaining for the Jan. 27 Michigan game, the mini-pack will now include the Feb. 3 Wisconsin game instead of the game against the Wolverines. So, as of Dec. 18, the $49 mini-pack now includes one ticket to each of the following three games: Jan. 9 vs. Minnesota, Jan. 17 vs. Northwestern and Feb. 3 vs. Wisconsin.

Champaign, Ill. - Illinois is one of 14 undefeated teams remaining in college basketball, and the program has earned its first Top-10 ranking in seven seasons. Fans have a terrific opportunity to see the excitement that is building in Champaign for first-year head coach John Groce's program by purchasing a Big Ten mini-pack. For a price of just $49, the package includes a ticket to three Illini home conference match-ups - Jan. 9 vs. No. 13 Minnesota, Jan. 17 vs. Northwestern and Jan. 27 vs. No. 3 Michigan. That is a 50 percent savings off the single-game ticket price.
Fans can purchase this special Holiday ticket offer online at FightingIllini.com. The initial response has been strong, with 1,200 ticket packages sold in less than 24 hours.
"I've heard from many people in the community that they are excited about this team, and we appreciate all the fans who support our program," Groce said. "Every home game is critical to our success, so it's important that we provide a home court advantage at the Assembly Hall that helps give our team the best chance to win. We hope to see these mini-packs continue to sell until we are sold out, and we look forward to seeing The Hall filled with Orange the rest of this season."
