Alumni Association Tickets To Big Ten Championship Sell Out In 15 Minutes

Twenty-four hours ago, the Nittany Lions didn’t know their fate next weekend. They didn’t even know if they’d be going to Indianapolis, let alone if they’d even have a shot to play for the Big Ten Championship. Now, fans have already begun to book their rooms and get their tickets, including the Alumni Association pre-sale allotment, which sold out in 15 minutes.

Though it’s typically not made public how many tickets are allotted for each group — students, alumni, etc. — the Alumni Association tickets unsurprisingly went quickly. The tickets went on sale at 2 p.m. today and members of the Alumni Association were given access to a special link and promo code to get the tickets on pre-sale. Penn State boasts the largest dues-paying Alumni Association in the country, and they came out in full force.

Penn State alumni and fans looking for tickets to next Saturdays game must now find tickets on their own through public venues, including Ticketmaster, StubHub, and the Big Ten Championship sale, which starts tomorrow at 3 p.m. If you want to sit with other Penn Staters to cheer on the blue and white, get your tickets on the east side of the stadium. Student tickets go on sale at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning at the Bryce Jordan Center and will cost $45 in cash. Some students have been waiting in line (in tents) since 11:30 p.m. last night.

We’ve received dozens of messages and comments from Penn Staters asking when tickets go on sale, how many there will be, etc., so if you’re planning to get tickets to Lucas Oil Stadium next week to watch Penn State take on Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship, you better be ready to go. Members of the Alumni Association headed to Indy are all welcome to the AA’s Friday night mixer and Pep Rally.
