After a 10-5 campaign that culminated in an FCS Playoff quarterfinals loss to the eventual national champion North Dakota State, Illinois State football head coach Brock Spack and the Redbirds have a goal to grow the season ticket base to 2,020 accounts by April 11, the date of this year’s annual spring game.

As a way to thank current season ticket holders and reward new purchasers, pricing on reserved season tickets will be discounted through the April 11 spring game. All reserved seats (sections 101-108) will be $105 prior to April 11, however after the spring game weekend, season ticket prices will increase.

Special season ticket rates prior to April 11 are also available for:
•    Youth (12 and younger) – $60 in any location at Hancock Stadium
•    Young alumni – $60 in reserved (sections 101-102, 106-108)
•    Illinois State Faculty/Staff
o    Prime: $100
o    Reserved/TDT: $92
o    GA: $72

In 2020, fans will be able to catch six home contests with two in September, two in October, and two in November including 2019 FCS playoffs participant and first-year MVFC member North Dakota. The other three FCS schools from the state of Illinois (Eastern Illinois, Southern Illinois, and Western Illinois) travel to Normal for games this year. Since Hancock Stadium was renovated prior to the 2013 season, the Redbirds are 34-8 on their home turf and the team is 51-14 overall under the guidance of Coach Spack since 2009 at home.
