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 are poised for an exciting 2020 campaign.

To thank current season ticket holders and reward new purchasers, discounted pricing on reserved season tickets has been extended through June 15. All reserved seats (sections 101-108) will be $105 prior to June 15, however after that date season ticket prices will increase.

Special season ticket rates 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
•    Reserved: $100
•    General Admission: $72

In addition to the special pricing extensions, fan-friendly ticket initiatives have also been implemented which fans can utilize during these unprecedented times. Season ticket holders have the option to spread out their payments over four installments or with zero money down until August 3.

Also, all 2020 season and single-game tickets will be delivered via mobile. A mobile ticket gets sent via email the moment it is purchased online and tickets can be pulled up directly on the phone or saved into an Apple, Google, or Samsung Pay wallet. Mobile tickets allow less person-to-person contact, are environmentally friendly (no need to print tickets, just present phone at the door), and eliminate waiting in will call lines or losing tickets.

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 Missouri Valley Football Conference 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.

2019 season ticket holders are encouraged to renew online at or by paper renewal forms that have been mailed. To purchase 2020 Redbird Football season tickets, visit or call the ISU Athletics Ticket Office at (309) 438-8000.
