Football tickets at Soldier Field now available

By Northern Star staff

NIU students can now purchase tickets to the NIU football team’s Sept. 17 matchup with Wisconsin at Soldier Field. With a valid NIU OneCard, students can purchase tickets for $25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Convocation Center Box Office.

After paying the $25, students will receive a receipt with their name on it. Students are then expected to take the receipt to the Soldier Field student ticket window on Sept. 17, where they will receive their game ticket.

Seat locations will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. Groups of students wishing to sit together are advised to arrive at the student ticket window together. The sections reserved for NIU students at Soldier Field are sections 152, 251, 252, 351 and 352.

Information about student bus transportation will be available in August, according to Shelley Binegar, associate athletic director at NIU.
