    2013 Hawkeye Football Tickets For Sale

    Here's the deal. I've been buying season tickets through someone else for almost 10 years and finally got some in my name. I already paid for the other set, so now I have 4 tickets for this season. I'm willing to sell 2 tickets (together) for every home game this year (except ISU is already sold). I found the closest comparable seats on Stub Hub and took 15% off of that price. Shoot me a message if anyone is interested. Of course, I won't have the tickets in hand for a couple weeks still. I'm not trying to rip anyone off on these, just hoping to recoup some of the $4,600 I have invested between tickets and donations for the season.

    Ticket 1-2 Section 216, Row 7, on the Aisle with seat backs (Centered behind the uprights in the south end zone)

    UNI - $100 each
    CMich - $75 each
    Minn. - $130 each
    Penn. - $190 each
    Purd. - $115 each
    Nebr. - $150 each

    Ticket 3-4 Section 127, Row 73, 2 seats in from Aisle with seat backs (On the 40 on the Hawk side)

    UNI - $130 each
    CMich - $120 each
    Minn. - $220 each
    Penn. - $270 each
    Purd. - $170 each
    Nebr. - $385 each

    I hear ya. Just listing them a little cheaper than I've seen them online. If they don't sell, I'll give them to someone on gameday.... As long as they're Hawk fans.

    wouldn't you be better off donating them to a charity if you can't sell them. At least you could write that off.

    Well, the donation to the U is no longer 100% deductible. I'm not sure if you can deduct it at all.

    Anyway, I took a calculator to this, and the OP is basically trying to get face and donation per ticket back. It's a tough sell for some games. It's difficult to explain how face value is $70, and that you actually pay $140 for a $70 face value ticket.

    BTW, 40 yard line tix, for a total cost of $4,600 for one set of tix is actually pretty decent. If he got a Kinnick Society pass also, I'm doing something terribly wrong.

    $600 per ticket contribution for 2 tickets plus $400 per season ticket translates into a total of $2,000 for 14 tickets results in a price of under $150 per ticket. I don't follow where the OP prices come from.

    Your pretty close on your numbers for actual seat cost. I had to donate 3 grand thus year to get my points high enough to get tickets on my name. So I ended up paying $3000 + $800 + $800. I'll entertain offers, I just based these off of stub hub. To be honest, its less about the money and more about getting the wife to stop complaining about how much I spent on tickets this year. So whatever happens, happens.
