New 'Enhanced' Game Day Parking Planned for 2014
IOWA CITY, Iowa - Fans of the University of Iowa football team who purchased season tickets a year ago will soon be selecting where they will sit inside historic Kinnick Stadium beginning with the 2014 season as the UI Athletics Department conducts a "re-seating" of historic Kinnick Stadium.
However, most fans of the Hawkeyes who are also contributors to the National I-Club probably don't know they will also have the opportunity to select the parking lot they'll call home on game days as part of this year's season ticket purchasing process.
In an effort to efficiently utilize all available spaces in UI-owned and operated parking lots, fans who purchase season tickets and make an annual contribution to the National I-Club will be provided the opportunity to indicate their first, second, and third parking lot preference with the lots that they choose from being based on their level of giving to the National I-Club. The UI Athletics Department will then make parking lot assignments based on their Iowa Football priority point total and the availability of space inside their preferred lots. The parking lot assignment will remain the same for the entire season.
"In addition to meeting all of our obligations to contributors to the National I-Club, our top priorities are to make our parking lots on game days easier to navigate, safer and more fan-friendly," said Paula Jantz, the UI's associate athletics director for event management.
