    Football ticket upgrade question

    I currently have 2 season tickets donating at the States level. My son and I were thinking of putting our money together to get to the $500 or $1000 level and getting 4 seats together. I'm on the 10 yard line, row 23 lower level near the aisle and like these seats. Would we be better off joining for 4 or doing it separate and asking to be near each other? Some on here have said they donated more to improve their seats and were not happy. Thanks for any input.

    Re: Football ticket upgrade question

    Boony, sorry to inform you but GF mentioned he wanted to sit as far away as possible from his old man. Just kidding. I'm not sure what to tell you. We have a similar dilemma. We are currently in section 12 and would like to move over one section to have the seats with the backs. The only problem is we might get booted to the upper level which I perfer being closer to the field.

    At least call the Cyclone Club or ticket office to see what the options are...plus with increasing your donation you'll probably ge better parking.

    Combine into 1 and buy 4 tickets.

    I had seasontix on the 40 yard line on the second deck first row, those seats were amazing, you could really see the play develop and see the seams, hoping to get those reserved tomorrow. IS IT FOOTBALL SEASON YET?

    THere are no "Jacobsons," there's only one Jacobson.

    I have two friends who did this and ended up in teh balcony, granted at the 50 yard line but they didn't want to be there. they wanted to be in the lower level. I also know two guys who threw in $5k to be eligible to buy into the club seating and got stonewalled there too. i'm convinced it's a crap shoot.

    I agree with the seating. The second deck gives you a great view of the field and all of the action. It's like watching it on TV only you're right there on top of it.

    Re: Football ticket upgrade question

    Probably have better luck with the $1000 donation, but I would call 1st and feel them out before sending the $. I think the first few rows of the upper deck are the best seats.
