CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The University of Illinois announced Wednesday that all obstructed-view seats for the Nov. 1 Iowa game have sold out in less than two days of single-game ticket sales, making Iowa the second game on the 2008 schedule to reach this status along with the Nov. 15 contest against Ohio State.
"Our fans continue to respond to the football team's tremendous turnaround," said Jason Heggemeyer, Assistant Athletic Director for Ticket Operations. "The best ticket option at this point is a season ticket."
A limited number of sideline season tickets remain, as do single-game tickets for Eastern Illinois (Sep. 6), Louisiana-Lafayette (Sep. 13) and Minnesota (Oct. 11). A limited number of seats in the first five rows remain for the Indiana game.
Ticket orders are currently being accepted and can be placed online at fightingillini.com, by calling 1-866-ILLINI-1, or by visiting the Athletic Ticket Office at the Assembly Hall. The sideline season ticket package is $225.
