IU Football Adjusts Season Ticket Policies in Wake of COVID-19 Pandemic

Uncertainty surrounding the timing and duration of the 2020 college football season has prompted Indiana to institute a few changes to its season ticket policies.

The school has modified the deadline for renewing season tickets along with providing flexibility as it relates to payment options and any future game cancellations.

Below is the full release from IU Athletics:

Indiana University Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass announced today a series of fan-friendly changes to IU’s 2020 football season ticket renewal policies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The changes are designed to provide additional flexibility for Hoosier fans and to offer assurance that they will be reimbursed in full for any IU home football game(s) that are not played this fall.

“These are unprecedented times, and we understand that there is a great deal of uncertainty as we focus on the present but also look ahead to the fall,” said Glass. “These changes are designed to give our fans the confidence and flexibility that they need as they invest and support our teams moving forward.”

Effective immediately, Indiana University Athletics has:

1. Extended the Renewal Deadline Until May 15. Previously extended to May 1, two additional weeks have been added to the renewal and priority point deadline for IU Football season ticket and season parking pass purchases. As a reminder, we will utilize your Priority Point total from June 30, 2019 for the 2020 football seat selection process. The Varsity Club will not be sending updated Priority Point statements prior to the 2020 football seat selection and upgrade process.

Further information about the seat selection process will be provided at a later time.

2. Introduced the IU Athletics Ticket Assurance Plan. If, for any reason, any portion of the 2020 IU Football schedule does not take place, ticket holders who purchased tickets directly through the IU Athletic Ticket Office will have the option to either receive a refund for the canceled game(s), or have a credit toward a future ticket purchase. This guarantee applies to all ticketed IU Athletics’ home athletic events.

3. Introduced a new 5% Down Payment Plan. Now, Hoosier fans can renew their 2020 IU Football season tickets by putting down just 5%. The remaining balance will be split between two equal payments on July 15 and August 15.
