Statement on Illinois Football Parking Passes: "Buyer Beware"

The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics wants to remind Illini football fans attending games at Memorial Stadium to be aware that parking passes bought from third-party websites and scalpers may not be valid. The DIA does not use any of these third-party outlets for the selling of parking passes or tickets.

Please be advised that patrons with counterfeit passes will be turned away from parking lots as to ensure that all patrons with valid passes can park in their assigned lots. The DIA advises that patrons arrive early at the parking lots as the process of checking passes may slow up entrance into the lots. All parking lots open at 7 AM on game day and close at 10 PM excluding night games in which parking lots will close one hour after the completion of the game.
