IHSAA Adopts Changes in State Wrestling Ticket Sales
November 29th, 2011 by Jim Field
CEDAR FALLS, IA – Saturday, November 19, the Board of Control of the Iowa High School Athletic Association adopted changes for the State Wrestling Finals ticket distribution system.
The State Wrestling Championship has been a sold out event for over 20 years and is the only IHSAA reserved ticket event. All other state championship events are general admission only. The Board of Control believes that with other changes occurring to the state wrestling tournament format now is the time to automate the ticketing process for the finals. The new process will allow schools and the public to choose the best available seats.
Under the new ticketing system, schools will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets either online or at the Wells Fargo Arena Box office. The order limit will be 40 tickets. Following the sale of tickets to the schools, the general public will have an opportunity to purchase tickets online, at Wells Fargo Arena Box office, or at Dahl’s Stores in Ames and Des Moines. Order limit will be 6 tickets.
The Athletic Association sent complete information regarding the ticketing change for state wrestling finals to school administrators and to people who received wrestling finals tickets in 2011 the week of November 21, 2011.
