Illinois State fans can now purchase miniplan ticket packages for the 2013 Redbird football season for $40, including two games of your choice, and an additional $20 for each additional game added.

All tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and include the best available seats located on the newly renovated east side of Hancock Stadium. Fans will have the opportunity to pick the seats they would like to purchase based upon the best available seats provided at that time through the online ticketing system on or when speaking to an Illinois State staff member over the phone.

The 2013 Redbird football schedule includes five home games, with the home-opener slated for Saturday, September 21, at 6 p.m. This game will also serve as the public unveiling of newly renovated Hancock Stadium.

Single-game tickets go on sale to the general public August 6, at 9 a.m., but fans are encouraged to purchase miniplan packages before single-game tickets go on sale to guarantee seats for Homecoming (October 5) and Family Weekend (October 26), due to expected limited availability.

For questions or concerns, call the Illinois State Athletics Ticket Office at (309) 438-8000.
