Purchase your NIU season football tickets

July 2, 2018

Northern Illinois University Athletics is now taking orders for new 2018 football season tickets online at, on the phone at 815-753-PACK (7225) and in person at the NIU Athletics Ticket Office located in the Convocation Center.

West Side tickets for all five 2018 NIU home games, including the home opener versus Utah, the first Pac-12 team to play in Huskie Stadium, begin for as little as $55 with the purchase of four tickets via the Family Pack, while East Side general admission season tickets are just $60.

Prices for reserved West Side individual seats range from $110 to $125 for the season, depending on location, and senior citizens (62+), NIU Faculty and Staff, NIU Alumni Association and NIU Varsity Club members pay just $110 for any West Side seat.

There are two options available for the Huskie Family Pack (minimum of four seats), with four tickets in sections B or F priced at $300, with the ability to add tickets for $75 each. Huskie Family Pack Option B is just $220, with additional tickets just $55 each. The Family Pack is available for any four (or more) people who want to get together, save money and enjoy great college football action at Huskie Stadium.

Season ticket members see all five 2018 home games and receive discounts on the purchase of 2018-19 basketball and volleyball season tickets. Season ticket members also receive priority for MAC Championship Game and bowl tickets as well as invitations to exclusive events like the Season Ticket Member Appreciation Brunch in August and more.

A limited number of seats are available for 2018 in NIU’s premium areas, including Benchback and Chairback seats, located in sections C, D and E of Huskie Stadium, and in the Sky Club and Sky Box. These seats require a Premium Seat Payment of $100 (Benchback) or $150 (Chairback) per ticket, in addition to the ticket cost. There are also 10 or 20 person suites available for select games in the Terrace Club.

Online purchasers can now choose their seat on the West Side thanks to the improved interactive Huskie Stadium diagram available on The map now shows available seats and allows fans to purchase those seats, including in the Benchback and Chairback sections.

For Sky Club or Sky Box seats, or for more information on the Terrace Club and other Premium Seat options, contact the Huskie Athletic Fund at 815-753-1923 or via email at [email protected].

NIU has also added a new student guest season ticket for 2018, for NIU students who wish to purchase a guest ticket for every game, instead of just on an individual game basis. Student guest season tickets are priced at $45 each and can be ordered online via TicketMaster. Every current student has a unique account which requires log-in using their student email address and the creation of a password. NIU students are admitted to all games free with their NIU OneCard (student ID).

NIU Football kicks off the 2018 season on Saturday, Sept. 1, at Iowa before returning home for the historic match-up with Utah on Saturday, Sept. 8. The Huskies return 17 starters for 2018, including six off the MAC-leading NIU defense of a year ago, led by consensus All-American Sutton Smith. See the entire 2018 schedule here.
