The University of Iowa has suspended season ticket sales for the upcoming football season. U-of-I ticket manager David Sandstrum says 42 thousand season tickets have been sold to the general public and that is combined with four thousand for faculty and staff and another 10 thousand 500 for students. He says they aren’t sold out, as they have corporate and other obligations they have to meet too.
Sandstrum says they need to hold tickets back for a number of reasons, the opposing team, contracts with the radio rights provider, for departmental and recruiting purposes. Plus each player is allowed a complimentary pass for friends and family.
Sandstrum says they reached their limit last week, and he says it surprised everyone in the ticket office. Sandstrum says there could be single game tickets available for a few of the games but they would not go on sale until July. The Hawkeyes open September second at home against Montana.
