Club 53

Fans taking advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of courtside seating for Fighting Illini games will experience the action unlike ever before. The renovated State Farm Center will feature 120 seats hugging the sideline of the court. You will be close enough to touch the court and will allow you to experience sights and sounds of the game available only to courtside seating. Seat holders will also have exclusive access to Club 53. This brand new lounge will be located on the floor level, behind the scenes from the bowl, and will become a favorite for courtside seat holders to gather before and after the game and during breaks in the action. The club area will be near the tunnel entrances to the floor, giving patrons the opportunity to watch the Fighting Illini as they prepare to run onto the court.
