    Football Season Tickets & Economy

    Hey, just a question for all the season ticket holders on here. Are you planning to re-up this year? If not, why?

    I ask this because I have been buying 2 season tickets for the last few years even though I live in St. Louis and only make it up for 2-3 games per year - thus making as much a show of financial support as anything. This year I am unlikely to renew unfortunately due to economic pressure. Not that have lost my job or anything, but things are so much more uncertain now compared to even last year - making it hard to justify $700 on top of the committment I already make to maintain my status in the Cyclone Club.

    So, what are everyone else's intentions?

    Re-upping, although probably not increasing our NCC contribution yet.

    Re: Football Season Tickets & Economy

    TheHelgo, I understand that you may not get season tickets next year, I have to drive from about an hour southeast of St. Louis to go to school. Its a long drive and just to go for games can be $$$.

    You may not draw from the best group of people to be asking that on here. Unlikely you'll get many that aren't renewing.

    Re-up, but not the NCC donation, not until next year if things get better for us.

    Re: Football Season Tickets & Economy

    I'll be re-upping. But I do live close (Ankeny) and have the cheap seats. Sorry to hear you can't make it. But you do have your priorities straight.

    Re: Football Season Tickets & Economy

    I would be interested in buying your tickets for 1 or 2 of the games. Maybe Baylor, OSU or Colorado. I live 5 hrs away and driving every weekend is not feasible. Send me a private message if interested, if you change your mind and decide to renew.

    Re: Football Season Tickets & Economy

    On this same topic, although I bit off topic....I have another question.

    First to answer the original poster's question. I will be renewing for 2 tickets but keeping NCC donation the same. This year they are accepting payments towards your total instead of one up front charge. That should help me out a bit.

    Now on to my question. I am currently paying for 2 season tickets and am in the States level of the NCC. The past couple years with my season tickets I did not get a parking pass and simply tailgated in the grass lots. This year, with the addition of our first child, I am wanting to tailgate in the lots north of Jack Trice. With my donation level for NCC I can get a spot in A1, B3, C3, or D1. My question is how much do the parking passes cost per spot? I also see they are first come first serve. Has anyone had issues getting a spot?
