Iowa vs Minnesota Wrestling Ticket Information

HawkTalkOnline.com was provided a detailed update from Daniel Steinberg concerning ticket information for the Minnesota wrestling meet. Here is a chance for all Hawk fans to read about how they can enjoy their weekend watching two of the top wrestling programs in the country.

About The University of Iowa vs. The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in wrestling on February 1, 2002.

My name is Daniel Steinberg and I am the contact person for the Twin Cities University of Iowa Alumni Association (TCUIAA). My phone number and contact info are listed at the bottom this announcement.

As many of you know that the Hawkeye-Golden-Gopher wrestling match is February 1, 2002 at the Minneapolis Target Center is one of those "Brake the crowd records." Tickets are being sold though Ticketmaster of the Twin Cities which can be access on-line at http://www.ticketmaster.com or call 651-989-5151 at ticketmaster. Tickets are selling fast according to Dave Lee of WCCO-AM Radio and Star-Tribune columnist Sidney Hartman and radio sports columnist for WCCO-AM Radio. (WCCO phone number is 651-989-9226 which is the general call in line or at 1-800-327-8255 for out of the area code.) I will admit I got mine back around November 14, 2001 and I got the upper deck for $13.25 for 2 tickets which end up costing me over $35 with all the ticketmaster charges were taken care of. The price range for all these sets are going from $13.25 for general setting which means pretty much in the upper deck at the Target Center to $38.25 per set along the mat. Those prices do not include Tickemaster charges. As of January 23, 2002, according to the Star-Tribune and WCCO radio that there are over 8000 tickets still left for sales.

I would like to point out that 2 years ago in January of 2000 when Iowa last came up to Minnesota that people drove up from Iowa expecting to get tickets on the day of the match and were turned away at the door because they were sold out. So I would suggest to get your tickets ahead of time for this match. The report was from 300 to over 3000 people were turned away at the door.

We, the TCUIAA, are also having a pre-meet with coaches and members of the Iowa Athletic department ahead of time at The Target Center in Minneapolis around 5:30 p.m. All Iowa fans, members of the media are encouraged to attend. You need to get passes for this event ahead of time and RSVP to myself listed at the number bellow or to Jake Pease at 763-571-4451 after 5:30 p.m. please. Please RSVP by January 28, 2002 please. Please pass this news out to the public please. I would like to get as many people into the Target Center as possible please for this match. Please post this information on your web sites please.
